TO THE BIBLE: Romans 1:16 CEV
“I am proud of the good news! It is God’s powerful way of saving all people who have faith, whether they are Jews or Gentiles.”
The salvation of every person on earth is the most important thing on God’s mind. He really cares about people, and that’s the reason He gave His Son to be crucified for the sins of the world. Jesus came to mend broken hearts, heal the sick, give hope to the downcast, strengthen the weak and transform sinners into the righteousness of God.
2 Peter 3:9 says, “The Lord isn’t slow about keeping his promises, as some people think he is. In fact, God is patient, because he wants everyone to turn from sin and no one to be lost” (CEV). He wants to have every man, woman, boy and girl come to the knowledge of His saving power, which is the Gospel of Christ. The opening scripture says the Gospel is “…God’s powerful way of saving all people who have faith, whether they are Jews or Gentiles” (Romans 1:16 CEV). In other words, God can’t rescue or help anyone without the Gospel; all of His power is wrapped up in it, and it works only for the one who believes. If you believe it, it’ll certainly work for you!
The word “salvation” is a big one! It’s the all-inclusive singular term that expresses everything that Christ did for us. Simply put, to be saved means that you’ve received eternal-life, the all-conquering life of God! No longer are you subject to satan’s authority; you’re free from sickness, disease, infirmity or any form of bondage. Therefore, no matter what you’re involved in, let soul winning be your passion. Identify your place wherever you are and reach out to those in your sphere of contact. Remember, the Gospel is God’s only saving power.
2 Corinthians 5:17-21
Dear heavenly Father, I thank you for my salvation. Not only do I enjoy the blessings of it; I’m committed to spreading the news to those in my sphere of contact. I’m impacting my world with the power of the Gospel, in Jesus’ Name! Amen.
