I’m trying to prepare a devotional that i’ll be sharing this coming week on what gives a Christian power to press on in the midst of hardship. If you know me you probably know my answer. It is the Gospel!!! Now, being that this is a gospel centered Blog, and that the gospel is the means to accomplish any good work, I thought it might be good to give a definition in my own words of what the gospel is. So here’s what I think.

The Gospel is this: That Christ came, lived, died, and rose again victoriously for His chosen people. He successfully paid the ransom for our sins in taking on His Fathers wrath upon Himself and imputing to us His righteousness. No longer does God’s anger hang over our head, rather His love and His blessing. He has transformed children of wrath into children of the Almighty God. Jesus was victorious and all authority has been given over to Him. He is the sovereign King, and He will be with us til the end of the ages! He has given us His Spirit to lead us and uphold us in our calling to love the Lord with all our heart, mind, soul, and strength, and to love our neighbor as we love ourselves.

Oh how sweet is this good news. His people will fail not, for it is He who is faithful unto death. The promises are ours. His blessing is upon us! Amen!
