GOD’S POWER BEHIND THE GOSPEL!

To open their eyes, in order to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who are sanctified by faith in Me (Acts 26:18).

There is absolute power behind the gospel message of Jesus Christ. The gospel message has the potency to open the eyes that are blind and turn people away from darkness to marvelous light of God. The Bible says in the opening text that to open their eyes, in order to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who are sanctified by faith in Me. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that God’s power is absolutely behind the gospel of salvation in life forever.

Furthermore, the gospel message of Jesus Christ has the power of salvation for everyone who accepts and believes in it. That is why the Bible says in Romans 1:16, “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.” Therefore, it is indeed the power of God that makes, executes and adjudicates the gospel message of Jesus Christ in life. The gospel message of Jesus Christ is meant for everyone irrespective of tribe, color, nationality and race in life forever.

The gospel message of Jesus Christ also has the power to build up and bequeath unto a Christian his inheritance in Christ Jesus. That is the reason why the Bible says in Acts 20:32, “So now, brethren, I commend you to God and to the word of His grace, which is able to build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified.” In fact, God’s power also commends by grace, builds up an inheritance and sanctifies a Christian for eternity in life. The gospel message of Jesus Christ is the Word of His grace that carries the holistic power of God in life forever.

Daily Tip: The gospel message of Jesus Christ is the Word of His grace that carries the holistic power of God for man’s salvation and total deliverance in life forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed (Luke 4:18).
