The Gospel: Power of God

Salvation Bible Basics

First of all we want to look at the fact that, in God’s provision, God has given us the Gospel. The word Gospel means good news. God’s way of provision, God’s way of getting a man from no relationship to a relationship, is by the Gospel. Notice in Romans 1:16, ‘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.’


First he says the Gospel is the power of God. This Gospel of Christ, the good news about Jesus Christ, is the power of God. That word for power there is the same word from which we today now get our word “dynamite.” Therefore, the Gospel is a powerful explosive used to move us from no relationship to a relationship with God.
