14 Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, 15 And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.—Mark 1:14-15 (KJV)
Believe people…believe! That is my clarion call and rallying cry from now on! We must believe the Gospel of God. Paul stated that the Gospel is God’s power in our lives (see Romans 1:16). It is the link or connection to the power of God. No, it is more than that…IT IS THE POWER OF GOD!
If we say it is the link or connection to God’s power, we are left looking past the Gospel for something greater. But the Word tells us, “…it is the power of God…” There is no need to look any further for any answer you need for your life and for the circumstances around you…trust in the Gospel of God.
I have complete confidence in the gospel; it is God’s power to save all who believe, first the Jews and also the Gentiles.—Romans 1:16 (Good News Translation)
Far too many Christians are waiting on the Lord to do something about the ills of our lives and our surroundings, but He already has…He sent us Jesus! Jesus came preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom of God. He came to present to us, not just eternal life, but the power of God working in our daily lives.
There is work to do, right here, right now. We have allowed the devil to wreak havoc in our lives, the lives of our loved ones, and in our communities; all because we either do not understand or do not believe in the power of the Gospel—which is the Word of God!
So, let’s forget what we have not done (there’s nothing we can do about it anyway), and make up our minds to pick up our mantle today; and move forward, as bold as lions, to make a difference wherever we are and wherever we may go. Our families and the world need us and God is depending on us to carry out His plan in this world.
We can do it because…The Gospel Changes Everything!Have Faith1st ©2013 Faith1st Ministries
