“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. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed,” Romans 1:16, 17.
Some believe the knowledge only of Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection is the power they need to be saved. However, for the gospel to be the power of God unto salvation, one must believe the gospel, repent and ask forgiveness of sin and by faith receive the person of Jesus Christ into himself. When one makes that surrender, the Spirit seals Himself to the believer’s spirit, then the believer comes alive unto God. The power of God, Jesus Christ, regenerates the seeker’s spirit and he comes alive unto God to walk in newness of life (Phil. 3:9).
The wrath and power of God against sin is revealed in nature. The whole universe has been placed under the curse. All creation groans and travails in calamity, looking forward to the time when Christians receive their new bodies (Rom. 8:22, 23) because Heaven and earth also be created new. “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away” (Rev. 21:1).
The power of God is the person of Jesus Christ. Receive Him.
