The Word&You Today – 26 February, 2020

Topic: The Gospel Of Christ

For I AM not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. Romans 1:17

Awesome teaching here!Do you get it? I love the verse we have just read. The question here is this? Have you believed on Christ? Then you have power. Stop praying or fasting for power anymore. Lord send down power or Lord empowered me….it means you are not saved.

Apostle Paul said “For I AM not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believes” – Rom 1:16. Such prayer can not get answer why? You are asking Him to do what He had already done. John 1:11-12, 1 John 4:4, 1 Corinthians 1:24 (KJV) says “But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God”.

You can not be ashamed of the gospel of Christ. Not the gospel of Elijah or Moses, gospel of a preacher or whoever? For I AM not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; Meaning I am not ashamed to learn, believe, speak, practice or live and teach the words of Christ. But why?

First is that it is the Power of God! Awesome. So if anyone wants to experience the power of God in Christ Jesus he or she must settle to learn the word of Christ, Note here”The Word of Christ”. Bro Paul emphasized this more in Col 3:16. Awesome lesson there!

Meaning until one prays the word of Christ it will be a missed call or non effective prayer – James 4:1-3, James 5:15-16. Until one learn to speak the word of Christ he or she may not be able to manifest the blessings of salvation. No wonder that Apostle Paul said “Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high”: Heb 1:3 KJV

Conclusion

You will know the truth and the truth will set you free. The truth is Christ – John 8:32, 14:6. Make a conscious decision to seat with the word of Christ daily – Acts 17:11, 2 Tim 2:15. Make a conscious decision to worship where the word of Christ is taught and not philosophy of men. Scriptures says “Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ”. – Col 2:8
