It’s one thing to have the gospel presented to you. It’s another thing to drop in. It’s another thing to have it come to you. According to this passage in Colossians, it is very easy to miss the gospel. How do you know if the gospel has come to you? How do you know if the gospel has been presented to you, and if you’ve listened? How do you know? I’m going to give you four tests. They’re all here. There are four things this passage tells us. They’re four tests so you can know if the gospel has come to you or not. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on December 3, 1995.
