Rhapsody of realities daily devotional

Friday, July 24, 2015.

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 (Romans 1:16).

The Gospel is the power of God to produce salvation for everyone who believes. All that a man needs to become a bona fide child of God — born of the Word and Spirit of the Lord — is to believe the Gospel and confess the Lordship of Jesus. The Lordship of Jesus Christ is what breaks the dominion of Satan from your life completely. Satan can't lord it over you once you've given your life to Christ. In case you're not born again, you can give your heart to Christ even now; turn to the last page of this devotional for the prayer of salvation.
Now, if this will happen for the non-Christian; if the Gospel can bless and produce eternal life in the man who hitherto was estranged from the life of God, imagine how more easily it'll bless the Christian! If you were preaching the Gospel to a non-Christian, the power of God to save and deliver him from sin, and bring him into righteousness, and the liberty of the sons of God, is in that message of the Gospel! Through the Gospel, the light of God comes, and darkness dissipates.
The same impact takes place in your life as a Christian, as you near and receive the Word; love and faith are ministered to your spirit, whilst hatred, fear, and unbelief are dispelled from your heart. That's the reason as you listen to, or study, God's Word, you notice immediate transformation and a renewing of your thinking; you can tell that your life is being upgraded.
The same thing happens if you were the one teaching others the Word; those you're teaching, through the power of the Gospel, are continually being transformed from glory to glory. It makes no difference who they are, where they've been or what they've done! The Gospel turns the worst sinner into the righteousness of God.
Trust the message of the Gospel! It's a weapon; God's weapon for salvation to all mankind! It's His power to save, heal, deliver, build, and transform men's lives, and make them sons of God.
Dear Father, thank you for the power of the Gospel, by which you've set me on an exciting journey of victory and success from glory to glory. I live above sin, sickness, disease, lack, poverty, the economy and economics of this world, because I live in your Word, functioning with divine wisdom always, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
