About This Blog

For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith,as it is written, “The righteous shall live by faith.
(Romans 1:16-17)

The gospel's the message of God's good news.  Despite the fact that we all sin and anger a holy God, the Father sent His Son to bear the penalty as every believer's substitute, raising Him again that we might have new life in Him.  Rejecting all falsehood and sin and turning to the truth, we must trust in Jesus Christ.  As He said, we must "repent and believe in the gospel" (Mk 1:15).

Because the gospel is a message, we don't live it, but we must live in light of it.  It has implications for all of Christian life, including our worship, our families, our relationships, our work, and our politics.  Those taking Scripture seriously must allow it to direct them.  May it never be said that our conduct was not in step with the truth of the gospel (Gal 2:14).  This blog aims to help you to believe in it and to understand how to live with it's glorious truth.

History of the Blog:
I started this blog years ago on Myspace (yes, really) and called it Pisteuo.  This Greek word means to believe or trust or to have faith.  It often comes before the preposition, as in "believe in the gospel."  Jesus used this construction in John 11:25-26:
I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?
In 2006, with Myspace becoming a more difficult blogging platform, Pisteuo began its migration over to Blogger (then called Blogspot).  Unfortunately, "pisteuo" was already taken (yes, really!).  As the gospel message has always been the aim of Pisteuo, I've been changing the name to Gospel Living [for an unreasonable amount of time], finally dropping the name Pisteuo in 2016.
