I am sure you may know what the “gospel” (Good News) of Jesus Christ is. If not, the Apostle Paul gives a great “short” telling of the essence of what the gospel is:
By this, what we can see is the essence of the gospel is the life, death, resurrection, ascension of Jesus Christ. It is in the proclaiming of Christ that we experience the good news. This good news leads to salvation, wholeness, reconciliation, holiness with God. This good news leads us to life.
This looks at “gospel” being a “noun.” In other words something tangible. But thee gospel is also a verb. How? When someone is being gospeled, they are being formed into the likeness and image of the message being proclaimed. When this happens, the mind is changed and the person is no formed into the good news.
So, whenever we proclaim the gospel, we are also witnessing the Holy Spirit do the gospel work within a person. The person’s mind is being transformed by the message of Jesus and the person’s life (spirit, emotions, etc.) is being gospeled by the presence of the Holy Spirit.
This is the reality when we proclaim Christ. The message of his life, death, resurrection, and ascension is what holds the power for life change to bring healing, reconciliation, wholeness (holiness), for the person who is open to hearing the truth of Jesus.
So here’s the challenge: Who can you share the gospel with? Who will you invite, and pray for, so the Holy Spirit can do the gospel in work within the person?
The power and presence of Jesus is incredible. It’s too good not to share with the world!
I’d love to hear your stories of sharing the gospel message to others.
One thought on “Work of the Gospel”
I have shared through delivering messages to the chapel at cornerstone, working with youth small group Bible study, teaching Sunday School and table leader at Emmaus. But most importantly to those who I was care giver of through Stephen Ministry. I like to share what the Holy Spirit has done in my life, each everyday. Jesus gave me his Spirit and I love Him so much. Also I am a daddy’s girl. Abba my Father is always near by. 🥰❤️🙏
