John Piper on the Good News of the Gospel!

"The gospel is a message about the good things that are now true about us as the achievement of the cross is applied to us in Christ - that God is only merciful to us now instead of wrathful (propitation); that we are counted righteous in Christ now (justification); that we are freed from the guilt and power of sin (redemption); that we are positionally and progressively made holy (sanctification) - all of which summons us to open these glorious realities for our people week after week with thorough exposition of texts".

John Piper - "Preaching the Cross" - Crossway Books, Illinois (2007) - (p115).
