Visible Gospel

Visible Gospel Sermon Illustration

Christian music artist Steven Curtis Chapman has adopted three daughters from China. He calls adoption “visible gospel” and says, “Until we adopted Shaohannah, I didn’t fully understand the depth of what Jesus has done for us. … Without Christ “I was hopeless, without a future, without a name. … Then Jesus came into my life, gave me hope and a future. He gave me a new name” (Shannon Baker, “Steven Curtis Chapman and Family View Adoption as the ‘Visible Gospel,’” The Baptist Standard, February 4, 2005, ).
