πŸ‘‘ The Power Of The Gospel Of Grace

β€œ…the gospel…is come unto you, as it is in all the world, and bringeth forth fruit, as it doth also in you, since the day ye heard of it, and knew the grace of God in truth” (Col. 1:5,6).

How wonderful to see the gospel of the grace of God do its work! Paul had never even seen the Colossians. He had only sent missionaries to them from Ephesus with the good news of the grace of God, but this had produced amazing results.

Wherever the gospel of the grace of God is preached in its purity it produces results. No one hearing that message can go away the same. Either he will consider it utter foolishness and be hardened by it, or he will see its vital importance and be softened by it. Ultimately he will either be eternally condemned, or eternally saved and justified by his response to that message.

β€œThe preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness, but unto us which are saved it is the power of God” (I Cor. 1:18).

β€œThe power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth” (Rom. 1:16).

Mark well: it is β€œthe gospel of the grace of God,” the β€œpreaching of the cross,” that produces such results. The law of Moses never did, β€œFor what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh,” God sent His Son to accomplish for us (Rom. 8:3,4).

God’s message to us is a message of love, proclaiming to even the vilest sinner that he may be β€œjustified freely by [God’s] grace, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus” (Rom. 3:24). source

[…] And what, now, is his parting advice to young Timothy? Does he say: β€œPerhaps I have been too intense. My methods have made many enemies. I advise you to be more diplomatic and tolerant than I have been”. Hardly, for the records show Paul to have been of all men most tactful and considerate. His sufferings were not the result of a contentious spirit, but of his faithfulness in proclaiming that message which so embarrasses and enrages β€œour adversary, the devil”, that message which is God’s gracious response to man’s need and His answer to Satan’s slander β€” β€œthe… Read more »
