Are We Called To “Live The Gospel”?

Michael Horton says no as this confuses Law and Gospel:

…we often hear calls to “live the Gospel,” and yet, nowhere in Scripture are we called to “live the Gospel.” Instead, we are told to believe the Gospel and obey the Law, receiving God’s favor from the one and God’s guidance from the other. The Gospel–or Good News–is not that God will help us achieve his favor with his help, but that someone else lived the Law in our place and fulfilled all righteousness.

Read the entirety of Horton’s article The Law & The Gospel to see other ways we often confuse these categories and the importance of getting the Law / Gospel distinctions right.
