A Powerful Message


Romans 1:16-17

The word gospel comes from euaggelion, a Greek word meaning “good news.” It was translated as gōdspel in Old English. Salvation in Christ truly is good news, for though sinfulness reigns in men’s hearts, God can redeem us.

This is the message of the Bible. In Genesis, we see the love of God for man, but we also witness how sin entered the human race, with the result that mankind was lost. There was no permanent solution until Jesus took our sins upon Himself. As our substitute, He endured the penalty we all deserved and defeated death with His resurrection.

Think about the strength of the gospel. God’s Word isn’t simply ink on a page; it is living, active, sharper than a sword (Heb. 4:12), and powerful enough to transform anyone—even sinners like us.

Think about what divine truth is able to do: It can break the chains of sin, heal brokenness, and change hearts. It also guides us into wisdom and choices that bring life. Friend, we have access to the most powerful message in existence.

What’s your response to the gospel? Are you grateful for being entrusted with God’s life-giving Word? This is why we must meditate on Scripture daily and eagerly obey what it says, as it’s the life-source for our soul.
