Samenvatting

The goal of this simple book is to help Christians gain a Jesus-centered, gospel-focused mentality while reading and applying the Scripture and living together in the community of the church. Consider the book a quick start guide to help create a Christ-centered life and ministry trajectory. There really is a way to read, apply, preach, serve, and live with Jesus as the Hero that keeps the gospel of God’s sovereign grace front and center in everything.



Any biblical truth abstracted from the gospel is corrupted. The only possible context for genuine obedience is faith in Jesus. Therefore, genuine spiritual motivation must always be presented in terms of the gospel. We are not heroes; we are sinners, failures, and weaklings—the not-nobles of the world. Attempting to become a spiritual hero or to cultivate a heroic image is an empty, vain, hollow, and hopeless pursuit. There is only one Hero—Jesus—and he has no rivals. When we start trusting him and stop trying to be him, we can say with Paul, “For freedom Christ has set us free” (Gal. 5:1).



''David Prince is my favorite living preacher. He connects every text of scripture with the central message of the Bible: the gospel of the kingdom of Jesus Christ. This book models that biblical strategy. I highly commend it for anyone who preaches, teaches, or seeks to apply God's word.'' Russell D. Moore, President, Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention



''The saving glory of Jesus Christ is the world's only hope and thus ought to be the church's only focus. What a great gift this wonderful book is, then, in helping us direct our vision and ministry away from ourselves and to Christ the Redeemer!'' Jared C. Wilson, Managing Editor of Midwestern Seminary's For the Church (ftc.com) and Author, The Prodigal Church



''I will be quick to commend this book to those who want to make sure King Jesus is kept at the center of the life of the church and all the things she does to rightly honor and worship the One that the Scriptures testify to from Genesis 1:1 to Revelation 22:21.'' Daniel L. Akin, President, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary
