HI!

“The steps of faith fall on the seeming void and find the rock beneath.” (John Greenleaf Whittier)

Rom 1:16-17
16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
KJV

The “gospel of Christ” is the message of Jesus Christ.
The message tells us: Jesus is the Creator, Who came into the world as our Savior, died on the cross to pay our sin debt, was resurrected, ascended to heaven, and is one day returning to gather all those who believe in Him.

When the message is conveyed, God’s Holy Spirit accompanies that message.
He verifies it’s truth, convicts people of sin, and convinces people that Jesus is the ONLY way of eternal life.

Sharing the message (gospel of Christ) is sharing the POWER of God that brings people to salvation!

The “righteousness of God” is such that God cannot justify man without surrender to Christ;
but God WILL justify man through surrender to Christ.

The manner of salvation demands believing “the gospel of Christ.”
John 1:12 says, “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:”

Faith is believing, and continuing to believe in Christ as Lord and Savior.
And, our Scripture above says, “The just shall live by faith!”
Those who are justified in God’s sight through surrender to Christ, will LIVE clinging to Christ and telling His story!

So....
Are you telling the gospel of Christ?

Love ya!
