Need for the Gospel, again and again

Jerry Bridges said we need to preach the Gospel to ourselves continuously. In other words, we need to hear the Gospel over and over again.
He began by saying that we tend to slip into the understanding that the gospel is addressed only to sinners. We can forget that we are practicing sinners—sinners every day in thought, word, deed and motive. Hence we need to continue basing our lives on the gospel and need to continue to preach the gospel to ourselves. This is the foundation on which he will build his messages.
