God's Powerful Instrument

The gospel is God's powerful instrument, through which He raises the dead in sin, enlightens the blind mind, pardons the guilty, cleanses the filthy heart, heals the sin-sick soul, and makes the miserable, eternally happy! In a word, the gospel reveals all that God can give, all that man can need, and all that the child of God can enjoy!

[James Smith]

1 Corinthians 15:1-4 … Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

John 3:16 … For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Acts 16:31 … And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house. ♥
