The beautiful truth of the Gospel message is that we are saved by the grace of the Lord and His sacrifice on the cross so that by His blood we are clean and made new and covered in righteousness before God Almighty.
Our Gospel of Jesus Christ means we cannot earn our salvation and place in Heaven by any works that we do, but salvation is a complete gift of grace from God. We do works of faith because we are saved by grace and inspired by the Holy Spirit and the Gospel of truth.
And just as the Lord is risen from the grave to reign on high in Heaven, so we will join Him because He has conquered the grave. Do not give up your place of eternal life by rejecting Christ and do not be distracted away from the Lord by chasing after the devices of the flesh, but know Him daily to know assurance of your salvation.
Our Gospel is Authentic
1 Thessalonians 1:5-7
5 For our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance; as ye know what manner of men we were among you for your sake.
6 And ye became followers of us, and of the Lord, having received the word in much affliction, with joy of the Holy Ghost:
7 So that ye were ensamples to all that believe in Macedonia and Achaia.
Paul and Silas were preaching to the Thessalonians and they used the term ‘Our Gospel’ which was inclusive of the Thessalonians.
This is an authentic gospel as described by Paul that is shown in these three statements: ‘in power’, ‘in the Holy Ghost’ and ‘in much assurance.’
The gospel of Jesus Christ is not just a collection of words, but the source of our salvation. Salvation not by works, but by grace and grace alone, so that no one may boast.
The 3 Reasons Our Gospel is Authentic
No one has been able to conquer death, yet one, Jesus Christ.
Jesus spoke many valuable words in the Gospel, yet He backed them up with power.
There is power in the resurrection and in the Word of God.
We do not have just words in the Gospel, but words that transform hearts and minds to the result of salvation.
2 The Holy Spirit
Our Gospel is endorsed by the Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit has been given to the Church to edify and relay power to us.
The Holy Spirit draws sinners to Jesus.
No one can come to the Father that the Holy Spirit doesn’t draw them.
The primary role of the Holy Spirit is to glorify Jesus in our lives.
Finally, we have assurance to salvation by way of our Gospel.
Our inheritance is kept in heaven by the power of God.
We do not keep it ourselves for we may lose it, but it is kept in heaven and carefully watched over by God.
An inheritance that is incorruptible, undefiled and does not fade away.
That is real assurance of our salvation from God and protected by God.
Peter Writes About Our Inheritance
1 Peter 1:3-5
3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
4 To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you,
5 Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
It is a sad thing for those who reject Christ because they are giving up so much. Giving up their eternal inheritance for the instant gratifications of the things of the world.
When we keep our focus on the promise of God to give us salvation and a great inheritance through belief in His Son, Jesus Christ, we can proceed boldly towards the works that glorify Christ and reward us even more.
Give praises and glory to Jesus that He has made it possible for us to escape the wrath of God for our sins and we will be brought before God in confidence of our salvation and righteousness by the power of the blood of Christ.
5 While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.
God only said this about Jesus Christ, not Buddha, not Mohammad, only Jesus and we should ‘hear him’ daily.
6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.
Only Jesus secures your inheritance of eternal life with Him and near God. There is no other way to Heaven, but by belief and acceptance of Jesus as your Lord and Savior and to obey Him and repent of your sins.
There are many who will try to lead you astray into new age religion and other things. Do not allow yourself to be seduced away from the Lord and the Word of God, the Holy Bible.
Trust only Churches that teach the Bible, our Gospel, and that salvation and eternal inheritance is attained only through Jesus Christ.
Trust Jesus Trust Our Gospel
There is no record so complete and trustworthy ever written than the Bible. From the prophecies in every book of the Old Testament about Jesus to the perfect life, ministry, sacrifice and resurrection of the Lord to that recorded by and about the early Apostles of Jesus Christ, the Bible is the perfect record that Jesus is the source of our salvation and assurance.
Assurance that obeying our Gospel will allow Jesus to lead us step by step and day by day, supplying our every need for our journey on earth leading us to the eternal inheritance and joy of the Lord as we enter Heaven’s gates with confidence in our salvation because we call on the name of the Lord.
Trust in the power of Jesus and hold fast to your assurance in our Gospel that your salvation is secure, that you have help from the Holy Spirit and that God holds your inheritance in Heaven where you will be welcomed with exceedingly great joy.
Truth is hard to find in a world full of deceit, but you can pick up a Bible and trust the council of Jesus and the message of eternal salvation given to us by God through our Gospel to be the Holy Truth.
