How the Gospel of Jesus Keeps Transforming Us

The Good News Keeps Changing Us

Sometimes Christians think about the Gospel, the good news, of Jesus as something that only gives us assurance that we will spend eternity with God in heaven: being “saved.”

  1. By the Gospel, “we stand.” In other words, the on-going power of the message of Jesus not only saves us from sin, but also gives us the power to be strong. Ephesians 6 tells us to “stand strong in the strength of the Lord” putting on His armor for spiritual battle.

Our Part

We just need to do a few things for the Gospel to keep saving us.

  1. We receive it, and keep receiving it. “the gospel, I preached to you, which you received.” The more we say “yes” to God’s word, the more it will save us. James 1 tells us to receive God’s word with humility, and then it saves our souls.
