What does it mean to live out the gospel?
It means putting one foot in front of the other, taking a step at a time, following the path, led by Christ's example - even when it's an uphill struggle as it so often is.
It also means giving thanks when the path is a bit less steep and when we find a spring in our step.
In the dryness of the arid desert and in the refreshment of the windswept beach, following Christ's footsteps in the sand. That is living out the gospel.
