Are You Awake to the Gospel?

In his book which I am just beginning, Jared Wilson points out 11 signs you haven’t experienced what he calls Gospel Wakefulness:

  1. The gospel doesn’t interest you–or it does, but not as much as other religious subjects.
  2. You take nearly everything personally.
  3. You frequently worry about what other people think.
  4. You treat inconveniences like minor (or major) tragedies.
  5. You are impatient with people.
  6. In general, you have trouble seeing the fruit of the Spirit in your life (Gal 5:22-23).
  7. The Word of God holds little interest.
  8. You have great difficulty forgiving.
  9. You are told frequently by a spouse, close friend, or other family members that you are too “clingy” or too controlling.
  10. You think someone besides yourself is the worst sinner you know.
  11. The idea of gospel centrality makes no sense to you.
