The Gospel On Display Through Repentance - Anthony Mathenia
How is the Gospel on display through repentance?
Anthony Mathenia explains in this video that people assume that if they allow the evidence of sin to be evident in their life, it paints a picture that Christianity is weak or not real. But, for the Christian, it does no good to try to cover our sin – we must come to the cross and repent of our sins.
Once we are saved, the reality of the Gospel is put on display in our lives. Because there is forgiveness at the cross, we can live the Gospel to those around us. We can be honest with others with how it is impossible to earn salvation by works, and repent and ask forgiveness when we sin.
Matthew 5:16 (NKJV) – “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.”
Anthony Mathenia was raised in Jackson, TN and attended seminary in Memphis, TN before serving as a full-time missionary in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. He has pastored Christ Church-Radford for five years. Anthony currently lives in Christiansburg, Virginia with his wife, Hannah, and their five children.
