4:30P LIVING THE GOSPEL

What does a 21st-century Christian look like? In today’s fast-paced world of “live and let live” attitudes, social networking and an ever-growing parental and generational gap, is it possible to live The Gospel? We are not supposed to just know and share it; we are to be living examples of The Gospel—examples of grace, faith, and love. "Conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ" (Philippians 1:27). What does this mean? Does it mean that we can’t be creative individuals of our own expression?
