Are You Walking in the True Gospel?

“…which He promised before through His prophets in the Holy Scriptures, concerning His Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who was born of the seed of David according to the flesh, and declared to be the Son of God with power according to the Spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead. Through Him we have received grace and apostleship for obedience to the faith among all nations for His name, among whom you also are the called of Jesus Christ.”

Romans 1:2-6


Ponder This

The Gospel of God that Paul was dedicated to is not a so-called gospel that merely mentions Jesus or that only alludes to Jesus: Jesus is the Gospel.

Do you know why we have churches filled with moral worldlings? They have religion, but they’ve never met Jesus Christ. Christianity is not a creed, not a code, not a cause; it is Christ. But you cannot take Jesus Christ out of Christianity and still have Christianity. It’s like taking the water out of a well, notes out of music, numbers out of mathematics. So many people have had an encounter with religion. But religion is not the Gospel. The source of the Gospel is God. The subject of the Gospel is Jesus. The supply of the Gospel is grace. Poor, lost, ruined sinners like we are saved by the glorious Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

  • When have you mistaken the Gospel for something other than Jesus?
  • How can you tell when you are more focused on religion than you are on Jesus?
