Gospel-Centered believer: The Gospel reshapes our identity. We therefore, think, speak, and live as people who have been made new.
A Gospel-centered believer possesses both an identity rooted in the image of God and fluency in the Gospel. Fluency is the ability to think, speak, and live according to the logic of the Gospel. Over the next 35 weeks, we will be diving into the Book of Romans with the focus of Gospel fluency and reconciliation to God and to one another.

To become proficient in any language you have to know it’s grammar. Grammar is the structure or the rules by which the system of language works. In Chapter 3 of Romans we have the basic grammar of the Gospel, these are the concepts and doctrines upon which the whole system is built. If we do not learn them well, our Gospel will lack clarity; it will create confusion in our hearts and we will often be lost when it comes time to communicate the Gospel to the deeper matters of life.
Speaker: Dhati Lewis
We all are needy before God and one another, but we often fall short of expressing our neediness. We can practice our neediness by confessing it to one another, crying out to Christ, and embracing our mutually brokenness.

Too often we want to be treated impartially because we think we are deserving. However, Romans 2 explains that mankind is on the same level playing field. All of mankind commits the same sins, will be evaluated by the same standard, and has access to the same Jesus.
