If we’re not aware of how the world around us is changing, we’ll miss out on an opportunity to share the gospel with that world. Not because the gospel will become irrelevant. Quite the opposite. The more everything else changes, the more important the good news of Jesus will be.
But the way people hear, understand and receive the timeless gospel is changing – fast. If we don’t realize and adapt to those changes, the people who may need to hear it the most will be left on the sidelines – at least in part due to our stubbornness and ignorance.
People whose lives are constantly being upended by change are desperate for a permanent rock they can cling to. That rock is the gospel of Jesus.
