Josh Harris began his sermon this Sunday with a proclamation that Jesus is risen from the dead, ascended on high and reigning. He went on to preach a sermon about the primacy of love in the life of the Christian.
Now, it is not as if Josh and SGM did not believe these things before, but they were not emphasized. “The gospel” was basically double imputation, rather than the declaration that Jesus is Lord through his life, death, burial, resurrection and ascension. So we may discern that the message of change has gotten through to Josh and that he will be changing theological emphases, at least at his church. I did not hear the call to introspection and constant agonizing over the cross like you would typically hear in an SGM sermon. This seems like a positive development.
