The Gospel Reveals


April 14, 2021


Romans 1:16-18

16 "I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, first to the Jew, then to the Greek.

17 "For the gospel reveals the righteousness of God that comes by faith from start to finish, just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.”

18 "The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness."


Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers:

"(17) The gospel attains its end, the salvation of the believer, by revealing the righteousness of God, i.e., the plan or process designed by Him for men to become just or righteous in His sight. The essential part on man's side, the beginning and end of that plan, is Faith. For which there was authority in the Old Testament, where it is said, 'The just shall live by faith.'"


God’s plan of salvation for us, the believers, did not just start when Jesus came on the scene. It has been revealed to us as it was written, and then threaded all throughout the Old and the New Testaments. You were not an afterthought, nope, you were created with purpose and on purpose.


There is power in the gospel of Jesus Christ to you who believe. That’s why the devil is working overtime to convince you that you are worthless. That you will never amount to anything. Then he gets you to speak against the very plan in life for you.


Father, I am persuaded that You have and are revealing Your truths to us, Your children, in a powerful way. So I will keep an open eye on Your Word. In Jesus's name, Amen.


Blessings on the journey, and remember that the best is yet to come.
