His Power Saves You

by Mark T. Hancock · 0 comments

From Romans 1, “… I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes…” .

I love that the Gospel is the only message we are commissioned to preach (Mark 16:15).

It strips away the religion and the science and the suggestion that God haphazardly saved us as an adjunct event to His Creativity or Sovereignty.

The Gospel is THE POWER OF GOD TO SALVATION. Front and center. Main event. Center ring.

Our redemption is head-and-shoulders above any happening anytime anywhere.

Our redemption means we have a right place in Him. Not a second-level membership, but a fully-redeemed place in the plans and purposes of the Creator of the universe.

“For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings. For both He who sanctifies and those who are being sanctified are all of one, for which reason He is not ashamed to call them brethren(Hebrews 2:10-11).

This is not ambiguous language. This is heavy stuff not meant to be misunderstood or watered down.

It means (among so many other things):
- we can know God,
- we can have a relationship with God,
- we are valuable to God,
- we have power and authority over our enemy,
- we have a purpose in the Divine Kingdom.

I hope that encourages you as much as it does me!

Have a POWER-FULL day!
