Power Of The Gospel!
Early this morning the Lord reminded me about the “Power” He has given to each of us, that is the “Power of the Gospel! He reminded me that I am to tell that in ourselves we have nothing, absolutely no power at all.
And He reminded me of the scripture in Romans 1:16:-
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth”
In this verse the word “Power” here is rendered as “DUNAMIS” in Greek. The root word is from the word “dynamite”, which is the “explosive” power of God. In addition, we see in Roman 1:17, the revelation of God’s Righteousness:-
“For therein is the righteousness of God revealed…” Amen.
We see in this verse that in sharing the Gospel, we are to share on the “Righteousness” of God.
It is never about our good works, lest we boast. It is the “Power” of the Gospel where His righteousness is revealed. This is the reason why when the Gospel is shared and preached, unsaved souls are convicted of their sins by the “Power”, the dunamis power of the gospel, paving the way for them to be saved.
All that we need to do as witnesses for Jesus is to just tell others about the Gospel and the “Power” of the Gospel” will do the rest!
I see the Bible as the most powerful thing on earth! It gives us the Word of God. I do not know of any other power that is greater. Additionally, the word power used in the scripture has many other shades of meaning in Greek. Here are a few of such words:-
1. The first word KRATOS stands for power of dominion.
2. Another power word is EXOUXIA which stands for power of delegated authority.
3. Another is DUNAMIS (listed above) which is that explosive power that destroys every yoke of bondage.
4. The next word is ISCHYS which is gained through ceaseless prayer. Certainly, a prayerless person is a person without the power of God!
The sum total of such powers all combined is the “Resurrection Power” that raised our Lord Jesus from the dead, Amen? Paul said in Philippians 3:10:-
“That I may know him, and the power (Dunamis) of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death”
So dear Brethren, His “Dunamis Power” is in us for service! Let’s tell others of the Gospel!
