One quick thought.

The Gospel is often thought of as a message that gets people to heaven. It is often taught that we want to make sure that people are saved from hell. We preach salvation as if it is only limited to the afterlife, as if salvation only means safety from the flames.

What if salvation is about my life now and in the future? What if I am being saved from a hellish existence here? What if the gospel is about changing my world to be more like heaven, more like the way God wants it to be? What if the gospel isn't about getting people to heaven, but instead about getting heaven to people?
