In Paul’s letter to the church in Thessalonica, he wrote openly about the gospel and its potential impact in their lives. Just like Paul, we also are entrusted to deliver the message of the gospel. Whether with our mouths or through our actions and deeds, we should always be a witness of the power of the gospel. And here are four points we need to remember about the power of the gospel:
- It’s a superior message. The gospel is more important than anything we’ve ever heard, because the mind of God is in it.
- It’s a simple message. We can never fathom all the wisdom of God, yet His saving message is easy enough for a child to comprehend.
- It's a sure message. Anyone from anywhere can be saved when they embrace the gospel.
- It’s a sufficient message. The Bible contains an answer for every trial or situation we encounter.
