How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!” But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed what he has heard from us?” So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.
For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith, as it is written, “The righteous shall live by faith.”
The Bible says that the Gospel is the power of God to revive sinners dead in sins, for them to return to Him and live for Him. Is this Gospel not enough to satisfy us? It surpasses any shortcuts created by man such as “Five Points to Make You a Better Father” or “Three Secrets to Effective Prayer”. We each need to examine ourselves: Do I truly know the Gospel of Jesus Christ? Do I trust in this Gospel or in myself? Let us all return to the pure and complete Gospel to continually know and trust in the precious Gospel of Jesus Christ.
