THE POWER OF THE GOSPEL


THE POWER OF THE GOSPEL

Romans 1:16 (NKJV) For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.

What would we do without the Gospel?  It is through the Gospel that we receive eternal life.  The Gospel is God’s power to us in our lives.  The word “salvation” means deliverance, safety, preservation, healing, and soundness.  In this Gospel of salvation, there is not only forgiveness of sins, but there is safety, healing, soundness of mind, life, and the promise that God preserves us unto good things. 

What an amazing Father we have Who has given us so much!  As we learn His Word and His ways, we see all the good that He has set in order for us to live the victorious life in Christ Jesus.  God could have so easily said, “I have provided salvation through Jesus so you will live for eternity,” but He gave us that, plus all things that we would need to live a blessed life here on the earth!

God made us with three parts and has provided salvation to each of those parts.  He made us spirit, soul, and body, and He has made provision in His Word to enjoy the fullness for each part.  When life, and the devil, attacks us with sickness, God has given us His Word to bring healing to these earthly bodies.

When fear comes against us, He has made provision for it to be cast out from us.  His love for us is so amazing that no matter what comes against us, spiritually, mentally, physically, socially, or financially, He has made a way for us to be more than a conqueror over it!

So today, make a decision to find out all that the power of the Gospel has for you, and then live it out for His honor and glory. The Gospel is the power of God unto salvation.  If God wants us to have all of His fullness, I, for one, want to go for it! I, for one, want to live it out here on earth, and then live with Him for all eternity.  How about you?

Confession:  Today, I make a decision to live in the true Gospel; a Gospel of power, safety, and healing.  Today, I make a decision to live out all that Jesus bought for me.
