The Power of the Gospel

Ro 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

Dr Lee Robertson said "If people are not being saved in your ministry there is only one of two problems: either the Gospel has lost it's power or it's not being preached."

In Romans 1 Paul enters upon a large discourse of the doctrine of Justification, and he lays down his thesis by describing the deplorable condition of the Gentile world in verses 21-32. Paul is not only telling of the horrible condition of the Gentile world in his day, but he is describing the culture and styles of the American life of today.

Our country needs a power such as Paul is introducing to the Roman people. We need a sweeping of this power to cover our nation in a rapid manner. On God’s time clock we are at One Minute till Midnight and there is not much time left to have the Power Of The Gospel turned loose and cover this nation with the saving message of Jesus Christ. We know that the onslaught of the evil one will wax worse and worse and all of the world system will eventually be turned away from God.

This failure of the world to listen to the saving message of the Gospel does not lessen the power of the Gospel. It is still just as powerful and as able as it ever was. It can save to the uttermost. It can save the vilest of sinners. It can change the heart and life of the worlds greatest sinner.

Selfishly speaking, I'd like to have the powerhouse Paul on my side for a few minutes

Your right Pastor, it is the duty of each and every one of us to do just that.
