“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth: to the Jew first, and also to the Greek – 2 Corinthians 5:17
LIGHT FOR NOW: The Gospel is the power of God.
The gospel is about the forgiveness of sins. It makes possible our translation from the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of light. Nothing changes the situation of a man other than the gospel. The Gospel is centered on the person of Christ. It is the only message that has the ability or power to save. Faith in Christ is faith in the gospel. It is faith in the resurrection. Until you have faith in Christ, salvation is far from you. The gospel of God is the news that was announced in the Old Testament. It is the promise in the Holy Scriptures (Romans 1:1-3). The promise announced in the scriptures was about a person – Jesus Christ. The gospel is the power of God. It is about the death, burial and resurrection of Christ. The gospel brings salvation. A saved man is a victorious man. He is not a man looking for victory, but he is victory personified. A saved man is not the man looking for healing but he is the man that has already been healed. He does not go about looking for things; He already has all things. A saved man is not the man whose sins are about to be forgiven; but he is one whose sins have already been forgiven.
The gospel makes faith in Christ possible. It is the faith in Christ that saves. The gospel brings faith for salvation. Any message that does not testify or witness about the resurrection of Christ is not the gospel. It is in the gospel that the righteousness of God is revealed. The summary of the life of the believer in Christ is faith in His resurrection. There is no way a man can be saved or reconciled back to God outside the gospel.
INSTRUCTION: Go after the Gospel. It is the power of God unto salvation.
Prayer: Lord, I thank you for the salvation of my soul, in Jesus Name!
QUOTE: it is in the gospel that the righteousness of God is revealed.
