Stephen Witmer – Why Heaven Is Crucial for Ministry: The Practical Importance of Our Eternal Future

TGCNE - The Gospel Shaped Life


The gospel is ‘a word for the present about the future’ (Chester & Timmis). Therefore, when Christians neglect our eternal future, we minimize the gospel itself. But wherever a biblical restlessness and a biblical patience for the new creation is re-ignited, the church benefits immensely. This session shows that the gospel concerns our future and why it matters so much for life and ministry that we long for and lean toward the new creation.
