THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
I always wondered what made apostle Paul and rest of the ministers in the early church so serious and compassionate about the gospel.This was so serious that apostle Paul could not help but to spell it out in Romans 1:16-17

KJV:For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
KJV:For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
Romans 1:16-17 | KJV
Apostle Paul was so boiled up in the spirit that he had to spell it, Apostle Paul proclaimed that he is not ashamed of the gospel of Christ Why? because it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone who believe. The word ‘POWER‘ is a very rich Greek word which means miracle working power (DUNAMIS) which means without the gospel of Christ salvation will be useless to both the Jews and Greeks.
The greek word for power is Dunamis. It is called miracle working power
The gospel of Christ is the most powerful, greatest miracle that God has performed on the earth, will still be performing on this earth. This gospel of Christ made the worst Christian persecutor in Damascus to be a preacher. It is one subject that the devil cannot stand because the gospel brought forth the once for all defeat of the prince of the world(the devil).
Folks This is so powerful because the bible from Genesis to Revelation is summed in the gospel of Christ and the gospel is not only for unbelievers but also for believers It is our bread and food, It is the solution to your frustrations, your worries, and your hope, issues on holiness etc. I so much loved the next verse says IN IT THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD IS REVEALED. WHOAA!! in the gospel of Christ the righteousness of man is not revealed but the righteousness of God is revealed through the everlasting gospelof the cross which is to the one who had no sin, in him was no sin but became our sin offering, was judged for us (Hebrews 9:25)and cried out loud ‘IT IS FINISHED’ to reveal the everlasting righteousness of God.
The Gospel of Christ should point one to the righteousness of God not his Holiness. When we stand before God as judge because Our God is holy we fall from all our blessing but when we stand before God as our justifier It humbles us before God and make us reign in life. There is a passage in Romans that says that “God is just in making us Just”. God made us just and making ourselves just through our efforts No!!! then how? Romans 5:1 having been justified by faith, we have perfect peace with God ,WE ARE JUSTIFIED BY FAITH not our works ,what makes draw near to God in perfect peace is full assurance of faith(Hebrews 10:22).The moment ones start boasting of his works to be justified it produces the sin of pride(self righteousness) which was made the most loved, and most beautiful angel to become a devil. The father deems fit for his glorious son to be revealed through the preaching of gospel. It says in 1 cor 1:20

KJV:For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe. that it pleases God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.
1 cor 1:20 | KJV
The word ‘ save’ is the word ‘SOZO’ which means heal, prosper, deliverance from eternal death to eternal life. God is pleased by this system that by the preaching of the gospel his people are SOZOED. Then one may ask what is the end result of the gospel of Christ in Romans 1:17 says it is from faith to faith. The gospel is received by faith and it produces faith for one to receive from God. The moment you acknowledge God as your justifier it produces full assurance of Faith to receive from him. All of heavens goodness is possessed via through the preaching of gospel of Christ. So I proclaim by the word of the God that we should buckle our shoes and go back to the gospel of Christ where the ‘JUST SHALL LIVE BY FAITH’. The word from God today is To keep on listening and listening to the gospel of Christ because that is your solution.
The gospel of Christ is the most powerful, greatest miracle that God has performed on the earth, will still be performing on this earth.
Start sharing the gospel today
The gospel is received by faith and it produces faith for one to receive from God. The moment you acknowledge God as your justifier it produces full assurance of Faith to receive from him.
