The Power of the Gospel
- Romans 1:16-17
For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith, as it is written, “The righteous shall live by faith.”
Charles Spurgeon said the Gospel is a lion. Let the Lion out of its cage and watch the Lord work in the hearts of those who hear. The Gospel of God is the power of God for salvation and the righteousness of God is revealed to all. When His righteousness is revealed, our unrighteousness is revealed and our total dependence on the Gospel for salvation is revealed. The Gospel shows us that we come to Christ with nothing and Christ gives us everything, not just forgiveness, but even His perfect righteousness.
