Far As The Curse Is Found

Read this great article by Bob Lynn on the far reaching effects of the gospel.

Here’s an excerpt:

“In this remarkable carol, we hear the announcement of a Gospel as big as the cosmos itself. The blessings of Jesus’ redemption flow as far as the curse is found, wherever that curse is found—in family life, political and business life; in government, industry, and science; in the arts and in recreation; education and economics. This is a Gospel for people who vote and work; who shop and play; who learn and create. It isn’t a Gospel simply for a disembodied existence on the other side of death. Lowell Mason’s hymn reminds us that the Gospel is good news to a world where every aspect of the cosmos and our existence in it is twisted away from the intention of the Creator’s design by the powers of sin and death.”
