The gospel is all we have

From a commentary on Ephesians by Klyne Snodgrass:

Christians have distorted value systems as much as anyone else. Value is assigned to religious entities, such as tradition, denominational politics, a particular cause, or the evangelical sub-culture. Too often Christians merely adopt the value system of the surrounding culture, but forget ultimate value. For us the one truly great value, the “pearl of great price,” ought to be God’s revelation in Christ. We need a conviction that God truly has revealed himself in Christ.
The gospel is not one item among many. It is all Paul had and all we have….We must give attention to the gospel, be defined by the gospel, and solve our problems by applying the gospel.
