The Gospel of Christ

The-gospel-of-Gods-Grace

 

Paul begins the letter to the Romans with His desire to see them and his hope that he would get there. He desired the chance to have fruit among them through the preaching of the gospel. He goes on to say, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth” (Romans 1:16). He was not ashamed of the gospel of Christ. This is the one true gospel about the finished work of Jesus. He was not ashamed to tell them about grace and how Jesus had forgiven all sins. He wanted to tell them that they were no longer under the burden of the law but now free to live in the liberty which is in Christ. The gospel of Christ is the power to save when someone believes. Belief is the only prerequisite to salvation. It’s not confessing sins (which is impossible anyway) but confessing that Jesus is Lord. It’s the GOOD news.
