Romans 1:16…For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ,[a] for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek…
The gospel or the good news about Christ contains the power that God uses to save anyone who believes! If you need the power of God to save you, you can find that power invested in the good news about Jesus. Locate the good news, locate the power of God!
Time and time again the bible gives us instances of how the lives of various people have been turned around because they heard the good news of Jesus Christ. Most of the people who received miraculous breakthroughs heard something about this Man Jesus that caused them to reach out for what Jesus had without much thought for what the rules and regulations of the day was.
The Woman with the issue of blood in Mark 5 heard about Jesus (V27) after going through 12 years of bleeding and losing money to doctors. What she heard about Jesus caused her to have such a strong confidence (faith) in Him that she didn’t care about what the law had to say about her condition or even how weak she would have been physically! Verse 28 tells us that…she kept saying, If I only touch His garments, I shall be restored to health…She had heard something!
Blind Bartimeaus in Mark 10 was another example, verse 47 tells us that “when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth who was passing by” he shouted out to Jesus without much concern for those who were severely censuring him! He had heard something!
Dear friend you don’t even need to be a christian by religion to experience the power of God that is deposited in the good news about Jesus. Jesus is a gift to the whole world! The power of God is available to anyone who believes the good news that Jesus is our healer, our peace, our provider our wisdom our righteousness…and much more! Be on the look out for the good news about Jesus. As you immerse yourself in the good news about Jesus by hearing and continuing to hear this good news, the power of God will be unleashed to help you out!
In the brightest or darkest times of life, never lose sight of the GOOD NEWS ABOUT JESUS. It Contains the power of God unto salvation.
Today I pray you hear something about Jesus that causes you to reach out to Him regardless!
Grace be with you.
