For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek (Romans 1:16).
The salvation and well-being of mankind is the most important thing on God’s mind. He’s most concerned about people, and that’s the reason He gave His Son to be crucified for the sins of men. Jesus came to mend broken hearts, heal the sick, give hope to downcast, strengthen the weak and make sinners become the righteousness of God. The Bible states: “For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved” (John 3:17).
2 Peter 3:9 says, God “…is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” He desires to have all men come to the knowledge of His saving power, which is the gospel of Christ. The opening scripture says the gospel “…is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth…” (Romans 1:16). In other words, God can’t rescue anyone without the gospel; all of His power is wrapped up in the gospel, and it works only for the man who believes. If you believe it, it’ll certainly work for you!
However, you must realize that salvation is a big word! It’s a singular term that expresses everything that Christ’s redemption entails. Simply put, to be saved means that you’ve received eternal-life, the all conquering life of God! No longer are you subject to satan’s authority; you’re free from sickness, disease, infirmity or any form of bondage.
As Christians, however, not only are we supposed to enjoy the benefits of salvation, we ought to spread the news around the world. When Jesus instructed us to go into all the nations and preach the gospel (Matthew 28:19-20), He wasn’t just referring to countries; He was talking about different ethno-systems – the world of bankers, lawyers, students, traders, academicians etc.
Therefore, no matter what you’re involved in, let soul-winning be your passion. Identify your place wherever you are and reach out to those in your sphere of contact. Remember, the gospel is God’s only saving power to the sinner.
