The Power of the Gospel

Recently, at my church, I enjoyed watching several people give testimony of their faith in Jesus through baptism.  As each shared their story it reminded me of what I truly believe – the gospel is still just as powerful as it has ever been and will always remain as such.  When Paul said, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes.” (Rom. 1:16), he knew where the ability to truly transform a person comes from.  My prayer is that the gospel will not only be unleashed through its proclamation in each of our pulpits, but that it will also be unleashed in our lives and speech each day.  It’s not in our abilities that lives will be changed, but in the gospel message we are privileged to share so that other may believe and be transformed.  – Dr. Gary Mathes
