The Gospel of Jesus Christ is full of power. The gospel of Christ is God’s power to save those who will believe, obey, receive, stand on and hold fast to its message lest we believe it in vain!
Romans 1:16 – The gospel is God’s power to save those who believe it.
2 Thes 1:8 – Just punishment will come to those who do not know God and do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus.
The gospel of Christ is the word that God has spoken to us through His Son.
Hebrews 1:1-3 – In the past God spoke through His prophets in many ways, but now He has spoken to us, literally, in His Son.
The gospel is the complete fruit-bearing message from God to accomplish God’s purpose in our lives. It is the message of God’s grace in all its truth. It is the message which grows and bears fruit in and among God’s people, the church.
3 We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you, 4 because we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love you have for all the saints— 5 the faith and love that spring from the hope that is stored up for you in heaven and that you have already heard about in the word of truth, the gospel 6 that has come to you. All over the world this gospel is bearing fruit and growing, just as it has been doing among you since the day you heard it and understood God’s grace in all its truth. (Col 1:3–6 NIV)
What God’s people must do to lives full of power is live our lives by the power full gospel!
