Message of the Day: Confidence in the Gospel, Humankind’s Only Hope!
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.” (Romance 1:16, NKJV)
Paul wants his readers to have the same confidence in the gospel as he has, for the gospel is humankind’s only hope. Because of our sin, we are weak and unable to save ourselves, but God in his power can save us from sin and accept us as righteous in his sight.
Through the gospel God can put people right with himself and still be righteous in doing so. But though this salvation is available to all, it is effective only in the lives of those who believe. Only by faith, and never by works, can sinners receive the status of righteousness that God in his grace gives (Romans 1:16-17).
