If we could remove all of the endless distractions of our everyday lives and reduce life to its irreducible minimum, that single element of life which we cannot do without, what would we end up with? When we look at the gospel, the answer becomes strikingly clear: people need Jesus. We can manage to coast through life without many things, but we cannot afford to walk through life without Jesus. That is life's irreducible minimum.
Winsome reminds us that the gospel was never intended to end with us - it is meant to work in and go through us for the salvation of others. God has called us to be storytellers of grace, pointing those around us to Jesus, the One whom they were created by and for. The time is now to join God's kingdom story. The time is now to see those around us the way God sees them. The time is now to win some.
