This morning, as our praises filled the room, thoughts of the gospel filled my mind. There happened to be someone attending our church today who openly apposes Jesus and I caught myself thinking; “finally, the gospel will be ‘shared’ with someone on Sunday morning.” My erroneous reasoning was swiftly greeted from The Lord with “my Gospel is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes” (Romans 1:16 ESV). My heart was reminded that the Gospel is sufficient not only for justification, but for sanctification and glorification as well! The Gospel isn’t done working in my life or anyone’s life for that matter. It remains active and when I assume that any person needs it anymore than I, it highlights my gross misunderstanding of its sufficiency!
Friends, let us remember that the gospel works as much in the life of a believer as it does in the life of the unbeliever.
