Just Exactly What Does the Gospel Do?

There’s no question, according to Romans 1:16, that the Gospel is the power of God, and that it is for salvation.

But is that the extent of the Gospel’s work? Is it only powerful enough to save us? Or does it do more than that? Just exactly what does the Gospel do, especially in us and for us? For sure, the Gospel does lots of things, but no doubt these 15 will bring you to your knees in worhsip!

Rom 1:1 – It separates us to God
Rom 1:16 – It saves us by God
Rom 10:15 – It brings peace from God
Rom 15:29 – It blesses us with God
Rom 16:25 – It strengthens us for God
1 Cor. 4:15 – It births us in the family of God
1 Cor. 9:23 – It links us to one another for God
2 Cor. 4:4 – It opens our eyes to see God
2 Cor. 8:18 – It is our source of praise about God
Phil 1:27 – It helps us fight the enemies of God
Col 1:6 – It bears fruit from God
Col 1:23 – It stabilizes us while we wait for God
1 Thess. 2:13 – It works in us as truth from God
2 Tim 1:8 – It empowers us through the Spirit of God
1 Peter 3:18 – It gives us God!

Hallelujah! I’ll be posting more later about how all these things actually show up in us, but for now let’s just be eternally thankful that the Gospel is enough for our whole life. It is completely sufficient to save us and sanctify us!
