“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.” Romans 1:16
Let me remind you of the gospel. I know you didn’t forget, but I’m compelled to talk about it because it’s the sweetest story ever. The gospel is the best and the highest of all testimonies, and we can’t just stop talking about it. The world is forgetting the core content that the gospel carries and the light that shines through it.
We cannot say that every member of the church is fully conscious of what the gospel entails, and until we can understand the basis of a subject, we might not be able to learn further. The gospel is the most powerful teaching in history. Through it, we are called to live life with faith, hope, dominion, power, truth, grace, and love, etc. We must share the beautiful messages the gospel has to offer.
Romans 10:14 says, “How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching?”
The gospel is a reality and not a fairy tale. It is the course showing the coming and purpose of Jesus Christ to the earth. He came purposely to save everyone, everyone in the world. So, His death was the ultimate sacrifice for the entire world. Humanly speaking, that could sound not very meaningful. You might wonder why the blood of a single man could wash the sins of the whole world, but that is the reality.
The gospel is the mystery God has orchestrated. And all it requires is to believe in this saving mystery; To believe that He was crucified on the Cross, He died and rose again the third day. This is the hope we have; even when we are down, we will rise and shine again. This is such an ample testimony to share today. Tell the world about Jesus again. Romans 10:9 says, “that if you confess with your mouth, the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.”
1. Jesus, thank you for your sacrifice for the world.
2. Oh Lord Jesus, help me to live the life that testifies to your goodness!
