Shine The Gospel

Text:              Romans 1:16-17, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.” nkj 

What is the Gospel – the Good News?

God Himself came to earth and became fully man.

Lived among us a sinless life.

Offered Himself as the supreme sacrifice for the sins of mankind.

2 Corinthians 5:21, “For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.” Nkj

Rose from the dead, victorious over sin, death and the devil and is coming back again to claim those who believe in Him.


The Gospel is the power of God to salvation.

What kind of power you say?  What does that power do you ask?

For those who will believe and receive the Gospel:

No longer under the punishment of sin – Romans 6:23 – For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

No longer a slave to sin

John 8:34-36, “Jesus answered them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin. And a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever. Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.”

Granted life Forever with God – John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

Granted the indwelling presence of God through His Holy Spirit

1 Corinthians 3:16, “Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?”


The Gospel is for Everyone who believes. 

That is part of the Gospel itself. That is why it is such GOOD NEWS. It is for ANYONE & EVERYONE. 

The Key: You must believe.

Anyone who will believe in Him will receive the FREE gift of salvation. Acts 16:31, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.”

The power is always there but is only effective if you believe and connect with God – It’s like electricity.  The power is there, available in the wall, but if you don’t plug in you cannot enjoy the benefit of electricity. Believing that electricity is there is one thing, but plugging in is where the power and transformation is.

John 1:12, “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name” nkj

Romans 10:9-10 “that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” nkj


The Gospel is a lifelong commitment – From faith to faith

It’s a process – living by faith.  This Good News means a New Life. “The just shall LIVE by faith.”

The life of faith is exactly that: a LIFE, one step after another that continues and NEVER ends.


The Gospel is GOOD NEWS and that is why Paul was not ashamed.  You shouldn’t be either.

It’s not about you.  It is about Jesus.  Who HE is and what HE came to do.

Share HIS Gospel so others can enjoy the freedom you have experienced through JESUS.
