THE GOSPEL IS THE POWER OF GOD

KEY SCRIPTURE: Romans 1:16 KJV “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” .

Life for all humanity has never been smooth sailing. There is an evil tide that seem to come against all men, no matter who you are or where you are. Men in their wisdom and effort have worked so hard to tame or control the storms that rise up against men yet to no avail. Man’s problems range from personal failures that causes him to act in ways that enslave him. This is what the Bible calls sin. It is a power or influence beyond man’s ability to control. Some in defiant claim there is nothing like sin yet their actions drive them into acts that their own conscience accuses them.

There are problems of sicknesses and diseases. Modernization has given birth to all kinds of sophisticated crimes that overwhelm many with fear. These and many more leave men with lots and lots of questions. Dear brother or sister I wish to make a humble submission to you that, the gospel remains God’s answer and solution to these seas of trouble that has drawn mankind. Please listen to what God’s word says. 1Corinth 1:18 KJV “For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God”. The gospel is about our Lord Jesus sacrifice of His life on the cross for all mankind. To those who believe it is the power of God unto salvation. If you would not believe you cannot encounter this mighty power to save and set you free.

By faith in the gospel I have encountered people with sinful lives set free to live godly lives. I have seen the dead raised to life by faith in the gospel. Deadly incurable sicknesses have been stopped by faith in the gospel. The gospel can either be foolishness to you and your burdens will remain on your head or, it can be the power of God to you, rolling away those burdens. Which one would you choose? The gospel is the power of God to those who would Believe in Jesus our Lord. Do not delay any longer, make that concrete decision to welcome Jesus as Lord of your life NOW.

PRAYER

Dear heavenly father, I am sorry for my sinful lifestyle, forgive me. I believe in Jesus who died for my sins and I confess Him as Lord of my life.
