The Power Of God

  1. 1. The Power of God Romans 1:16—17
  2. 2. Romans 1:16—17 <ul><li>“ I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile. 17  For in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed, a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.” </li></ul>
  3. 3. The Gospel is the Power of Salvation <ul><li>It is the Power of God. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>“ For Christ did not send me to baptize, but to preach the gospel, not with words of human wisdom, lest the cross of Christ be emptied of its power. For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.” 1 Corinthians 1:17–18 </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The gospel is the only way of salvation. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>“ Now brothers, I want to remind you of the gospel I preached to you, which you received and on which you have taken your stand. By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain.” 1 Corinthians 15:1–2 </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. The Gospel reveals his Righteousness <ul><li>God’s righteousness is revealed in the gospel </li></ul><ul><li>This righteousness comes from God. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>&quot;But whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness that comes from God and is by faith. I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead.” Philippians 3:7–11 </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. The Gospel reveals his Righteousness <ul><li>It is a righteousness God bestows on people of faith. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>“ But now a righteousness from God, apart from law, has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify. This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.” Romans 3:21–24 </li></ul></ul>
  6. 6. We obey the gospel through faith <ul><li>We have the gospel because of God’s Grace. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>“ After much discussion, Peter got up and addressed them: “Brothers, you know that some time ago God made a choice among you that the Gentiles might hear from my lips the message of the gospel and believe.” Acts 15:7 </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The gospel was written in order to produce faith. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>“ Jesus did many other miraculous signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not recorded in this book. But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.” John 20:30–31 </li></ul></ul>
  7. 7. “ The son, the son, who will take the son?”
