Sinners are in blindness, darkened by the Fall, and the false teachings of religious hypocrites. They need the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ – the gospel of Him doing everything, faith in Him, and the eternal riches. They must know Christ was crucified for them, and He’s their full acceptance with God, by faith alone. Sinners need to understand the forgiveness of sins, freedom from God’s law, and we must be taught to walk acceptably. We must know “no condemnation in Christ”, and the law of the Spirit, whereby POWER is given with a joyful obedience. This holiness is not drudged up by man, but God given; it is the yoke that’s not bondage and the commandment keeping that is not grievous (1 John 5:3).
Satan has men bound, and he’s a cruel master. I spent 18 years under his fog as a BELIEVING preacher – doing it myself, like Moses when he first attempted to save, or like Jonah, going in the opposite direction from Nineveh. We must know that God is the pleasure that we’re looking for, so we can be delivered from the world (1 John 2:15).
It is not rule keeping; it is Person loving – not stirring up ourselves, but God purging our conscience from empty dead works. The love of Christ must conquer you. Paul said, “For Christ’s love compels us, since we have reached this conclusion: If One died for all, then all died. And He died for all so that those who live should no longer live for themselves, but for the One who died for them and was raised (2 Cor 5:14-15).”
The gospel is the light, knowledge, and deliverance that all must have; it is the purpose of Paul’s preaching and of my life. Join with me and walk in freedom. Join the saints of old and see what faith can do, even as Jacob prevailed with God, Mark wrote his Gospel after quitting, and Moses was called unexpectedly when 2/3 of his life was done, including 1/3 in the desert after failure.
You can and will walk with God by daily meditation on His word, setting your mind on things above – how rich you are in Christ. Return to Him daily, treasuring His presence as the highest privilege in the world.
MY DAILY GOSPEL is built upon the foundation that we need Christ, daily, and He’s promised to give Himself in the gospel. We cannot function in joy, peace, and power without the Holy Spirit. This blog is dedicated to daily preaching Christ’s glory, so that our eyes may be fixed on Him, empowering us to spread the gospel. We are blessed to have His promise, “Then the LORD said to Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you and the people will go out and gather a day’s portion every day, that I may prove them, whether they will walk in my law, or not (Ex 16:4).”
