The message of the gospel is both comfort and call. It presents the comforting truth that in Christ we have been forgiven and made righteous. We are now sons and daughters of God and accepted into His kingdom for eternity, not because of any worth or work of our own but because of the loving choice of the Father and the sacrifice of the Son.
The gospel also offers us, as citizens of the kingdom, a call—a call to come and die, to forsake everything for the expansion of the kingdom of God, and to push back what is dark in the world. This call bids us to throw off the old self and clothe ourselves with the new self.
In this class, we are going to examine together the call to make disciples and apply this disciple-making mission to a specific group of people: Addicts. This study does not offer an attempt to climb a staircase to God through a religious system but rather the pursuit of obedience in faithful response to what God has already accomplished and promised through the gospel.
