Welcome to the Gospel Light Minute!

Daniel Whyte III is a full-time evangelist by calling. Through the Gospel Light Minute, his main aim is to present a short, clear, understandable presentation of the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ which saved him over 30 years ago. Throughout his ministry, he has emphasized a clear presentation of the Gospel because he believes that many pastors and churches mix up the Gospel with other things, and this causes confusion for nonbelievers. In order to do that, Daniel Whyte III uses tracts that he has written, as well as tracts produced by the following ministries: Fellowship Tract League, the American Tract Society, and Good News/Crossway Tracts in the production of this broadcast.

Jesus Reveals God’s True Intent Behind the Law, Part 52 — The Law of Love (Just Jesus Evangelistic Campaign, Day 317 since Jan. 20, 2017 / Day 684 since Jan. 1, 2016)



TEXT: Matthew 5:43-45:

43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.

44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

Warren Wiersbe said, “Since Christian love is an act of the will, and not simply an emotion, Jesus has the right to command us to love our enemies. After all, He loved us when we were His enemies.”

Talking about loving our enemies is one thing; actually doing it is the hard part. Jesus does not leave the command to love our enemies in the abstract. In this passage, He tells us how we can and should be obedient to this command. You will probably never feel like you love your enemies, but Jesus does not tell us to feel anything; He tells us only to act. He gives us three specific ways we can love our enemies by our actions.

First, He says, “Bless them that curse you.” In that day and time, it was not unusual to hear someone publicly pronouncing a curse on someone that they were at odds. It was the opposite of saying, “God bless you,” as we do today. It was a vernal admission of one’s desire to see the other party come to some kind of misfortune. Well, Jesus says we ought to do the following. We ought to “bless” our enemies. The Greek word translated as “bless” is “eu-lo-ge-o”: it means “to invoke blessings; to ask God’s blessing on a person or thing.” Instead of wishing that bad things happen to those you perceive as your enemy, pray that God would bless them instead.

——-

Now, if you are with us today and you do not know Jesus Christ as your Savior, allow me to show you how you can place your faith and trust in Him for Salvation from sin and Hell.

First, accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

Second, accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…”

Third, accept the fact that you are on the road to hell. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 10:28: “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Also, the Bible states in Revelation 21:8: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

Now that is bad news, but here’s the good news. Jesus Christ said in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead by the power of God for you so that you can live eternally with Him. Pray and ask Him to come into your heart today, and He will.

Romans 10:9 & 13 says, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved… For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

If you believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead, and you want to trust Him for your Salvation today, please pray with me this simple prayer: Holy Father God, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. I am sorry for my sins, and today I choose to turn from my sins. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. I trust Jesus Christ as my Savior and I choose to follow Him as Lord from this day forward. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.

If you believed in your heart that Jesus Christ died on the Cross, was buried, and rose again, allow me to say, congratulations on doing the most important thing in life and that is accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour! For more information to help you grow in your newfound faith in Christ, go to Gospel Light Society.com and read “What To Do After You Enter Through the Door”. Jesus Christ said in John 10:9, “I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.”

TEXT: Revelation 22:12-21

12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.

13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.

14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.

17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.

18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:

19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

The Free State of Glory (Part 52): Better Days Ahead

This weekend, the new Star Wars film, The Last Jedi, hit theaters. Predictably, it followed in the footsteps of its eight predecessors for the sheer behemoth size of its cultural footprint — something which has lasted since 1977. As many have tried to explain why the series is so enduring, observers seem to circle back repeatedly to one word: hope. In a galaxy filled with an unrelenting dark force, a seemingly infinite supply of evil, merciless, brainwashed soldiers, and not one, but three planet-destroying weapons, what keeps the battered, ragtag Resistance going? Hope. A belief that, at some time in the future, better days are coming.

Hope for the future is something we all can identify with. It is a constant human endeavour to look ahead to what will presumably be better days. The world as we know it is filled with heartbreak, pain, woe, and numerous reasons to think that there is only worse down the road. Yet, God has put within each of us a spirit that says, “No matter what is happening now, there must be better days ahead.” Even though the book of Revelation deals largely with judgement to come, it is undeniably filled with this sense of hope. And, as we close in on the final few verses of the Revelation, this sense of hope surfaces once again.

In verse 16, Jesus speaks, telling us that better days are coming. He says, “I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.” The churches of John’s day regularly faced violent persecution. Many believed that the end of the world was already upon them. How wonderful it was for the churches who received John’s Revelation to hear from Jesus, their King, Himself! John Walvoord writes, “The entire Book of Revelation was delivered by Christ through His angel and is for the churches. Christ described Himself as the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star. Historically Christ comes through David. Prophetically His Coming is like the morning star, the beginning of a bright new day.”

Warren Wiersbe said, “Our Lord’s titles in Revelation 22:16 are most interesting. The “root” is buried in the ground where no one can see it, but the “star” is in the heavens where everyone can see it. In “the Root and Offspring of David” we have Jesus’ Jewish, national name, but in “the Bright and Morning Star” we have His universal name. One speaks of humility, the other of majesty and glory.
As “the Root of David,” Jesus Christ brought David into existence. As “the Offspring of David,” Jesus came into this world, born a Jew from David’s line. Both the deity and the humanity of Jesus are evident here. The “morning star” announces dawn’s soon arrival. Jesus Christ will come for His church as “the Morning Star.” But when He returns to judge, it will be as “the Sun of righteousness” in burning fury.”

Note that Jesus does not actually do anything in this passage. He simply shows up and declares Himself present: “I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.” It is in Jesus that we find our true hope and our confidence that better days are truly ahead. It is a great benefit to be reminded that Heaven is our home and that we are just passing through this sin-cursed world. As long as we remember that Jesus is here with us — the same yesterday, today, and forever — the King of kings — we can keep our sense of hope against the seemingly overwhelming dark forces of the world.

If you are not a believer, you will be condemned to remain without the gates of Heaven. Make sure you are within by placing your faith and trust in Jesus Christ. Allow me to show you how you can do that right now.

First, accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

Second, accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…”

Third, accept the fact that you are on the road to hell. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 10:28: “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Also, the Bible states in Revelation 21:8: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

Now that is bad news, but here’s the good news. Jesus Christ said in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead by the power of God for you so that you can live eternally with Him. Pray and ask Him to come into your heart today, and He will.

Romans 10:9 & 13 says, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved… For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

If you believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead, and you want to trust Him for your Salvation today, please pray with me this simple prayer: Holy Father God, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life.

Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.

If you just trusted Jesus Christ as your Saviour, and you prayed that prayer and meant it from your heart, I declare to you that based upon the Word of God, you are now saved from Hell and you are on your way to Heaven. Welcome to the family of God! Congratulations on doing the most important thing in life and that is receiving Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour.

TEXT: Matthew 5:43-45:

43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.

44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

———-

In this passage, Jesus addresses the reasonable human idea that we ought to love our neighbors and hate our enemies. Jesus, as He has done throughout His Sermon on the Mount, flips that idea on its head, telling us that we ought to love our enemies as well. This was a particularly pointed command for his mostly Jewish audience who felt as though they lived in a land surrounded by and invaded by enemies — Romans, Samaritans, and other Gentiles. Because these people had not descended from Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and did not worship the God of Israel, they were seen by the Jews as enemies. In fact, the Jews’ hatred for other people groups was so well-known that the Roman government saw them as haters of humanity.

Since loving our neighbors is the standard, Jesus calls us to treat our enemies like our neighbors. But who is our neighbor? The word “neighbor” indicates one who is near or close in proximity. In the Old Testament, Jews lived only near other people who were just like them; so it was easy to love one’s neighbor. But, in the New Testament, Jews lived in close proximity with Romans, Greeks, Samaritans, and other Gentiles. Still they had defined neighbor as one who was a fellow pure descendant of the Hebrew patriarchs. However, this changed with Jesus. A.T. Robertson writes, “The Old Testament meaning of neighbor covers national or tribal fellowship. But the Christian sense of ‘neighbor’, expounded by Jesus in the parable of the Good Samaritan, includes the whole brotherhood of man. It is founded in love for man, as man, everywhere.”

Today we live in a much more cosmopolitan world than our first century counterparts. Our “neighbors” — the people who live and work in proximity to us — are likely to be quite different from us. Many who live side-by-side today have a different ethnic background, race, language, educational status, economic status, political leaning, social views, etc. We are commanded to love each of our neighbors. Not only that, but often the people we regard as our “enemies” are those in our own homes, our own churches, our own workplaces. You should get along with these people, but for some reason, you don’t. Maybe it is a difference in personality; maybe they dislike you because you’re a Christian; maybe you had a disagreement years ago that you never got over and every time you see each other, you start arguing. Whatever the case, Jesus commands you to love. Whoever you regard as your enemy, choose to love them anyway.

Now, if you are with us today and you do not know Jesus Christ as your Savior, allow me to show you how you can place your faith and trust in Him for Salvation from sin and Hell.

First, accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

What is the Gospel? (Just Jesus Evangelistic Campaign, Day 314 since Jan. 20, 2017 / Day 681 since Jan. 1, 2016)

According to 1 Corinthians 15:1-4, the Gospel is embodied in these words: “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures.”

1 Corinthians 2:2 says, “For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.”

Regarding 1 Corinthians 15:1, Ray Stedman writes, “There are three elements of the Gospel, according to Paul. He says, ‘I delivered to you as of first importance [that which is foundational, that which is fundamental to our understanding] what I also received.’ Whom did he receive it from? Well, he tells us in other places that it was from the Lord Himself. Jesus appeared to him and taught him what the Gospel was. He did not learn it from the other apostles; amazingly, some commentaries still say that. But if you read the opening words of Paul in the letter to the Galatians, he says, ‘I did not learn it from men, nor was I taught it by man.’ The Lord Himself delivered it to him, and what was delivered to Paul, by the words and lips of Jesus, he passed on to these Corinthians. They received it, they believed it, they accepted the One of Whom it spoke, and thus they have become Christians. Paul now says, here is what that word is. He reminds them of what he had preached to them.”

In First Timothy 1:15, the Gospel is described as “a faithful [or trustworthy] saying worthy of all acceptation.” These words indicate the extreme vetting that the Gospel has undergone. It is a message that has stood up to scrutiny and examination. Just as eyewitness testimony is collected by a police detective, the message of the Gospel, even at the time of Paul’s writing, had been corroborated by multiple eyewitnesses and multiple accounts.There were things that happened that neither the Roman government nor the Jewish religious leaders could deny. When you hear the message of the Gospel, you are not hearing unfounded religious rantings, but a message that has stood the test of time — a message that came directly from God, Who cannot lie, in the Person of Jesus Christ, Who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.

Now, if you are with us today and you do not know Jesus Christ as your Savior, allow me to show you how you can place your faith and trust in Him for Salvation from sin and Hell.

Now that is bad news, but here’s the good news. Jesus Christ said in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead by the power of God for you so that you can live eternally with Him.

How to Win at Spiritual Warfare Through Prayer, Part 3 (Praying Through the Bible #275)


Daniel Whyte III

Daniel Whyte III

TEXT: Ephesians 6:18-20

18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

19 And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,

20 For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.

We are in a series of messages titled “Praying Through the Bible: A Series on Every Passage and Verse Regarding Prayer in the Bible.” The purpose of this series is to encourage and motivate you to pray to the God of the Bible. We highlighted each of these over 500 verses and passages in the Prayer Motivator Devotional Bible. So far, we have completed 273 messages in this series.

This is message #275 titled, How to Win at Spiritual Warfare Through Prayer, Part 3.

Prayer is a crucial, but often overlooked, weapon in spiritual warfare. Scripture gives us only six pieces of armor that we are to put on, but tells us we ought to use “all prayer” for our defense against spiritual attack and our assault on Satan. Scholars have identified fifteen distinct types of prayer in the Bible, and we will look at each of them in detail.

The first type of prayer is the prayer of faith. This is a prayer for something that is in God’s will, but is yet to come to pass. In this prayer, you express belief in the power of God to bring things to pass. James 5:15 says, “The prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.”

Now the term ‘prayer of faith’ has been misused by some on the charismatic end of the spectrum. Some take it to mean that you can “name it and claim it” even though it may not be biblical. With that in mind, Dr. Sinclair Ferguson provides the following definition of the prayer of faith: “This, then, is the prayer of faith: to ask God to accomplish what He has promised in His Word. That promise is the only ground for our confidence in asking. Such confidence is not ‘worked up’ from within our emotional life; rather, it is given and supported by what God has said in Scripture.”

In spiritual warfare, it is hugely important to know that we can rely on God’s Word because one of the ways the devil will attack us is by trying to convince us that we can’t trust what God has said. However, the prayer of faith helps us to look at God’s Word and say, ‘This is what God has promised. I can trust God’s promises. I will walk in these promises from my Heavenly Father.’ The prayer of faith causes us to go before God and say, ‘Father, you promised…” And we know that God will keep His word because the Psalmist writes, ‘God has magnified [or held in high esteem His word above all His name.’ God told Jeremiah, “Thou hast well seen: for I will hasten my word to perform it.”

We want God to perform what He has promised in His Word. While we know that He will do all that He has said in His time and His way, it is important to be reminded of this as the devil seeks to sow the seeds of doubt. The prayer of faith provides a defense against such Satanic attack and encourages us to keep our faith and trust in God.

Now, if you are with us today, and you do not know the Lord Jesus Christ as your Saviour, your first prayer needs to be what we call the Sinner’s Prayer. First, please understand that you are a sinner, just as I am, and that you have broken God’s laws. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

Second, accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…”

Third, accept the fact that you are on the road to hell. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 10:28: “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Also, the Bible states in Revelation 21:8: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

Now this is bad news, but here’s the good news. Jesus Christ said in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead by the power of God for you so that you can live eternally with Him. Pray and ask Him to come into your heart today, and He will.

Romans 10:9 & 13 says, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved… For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

If you believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead, and you want to trust Him for your Salvation today, please pray with me this simple prayer: Holy Father God, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I now believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.

If you just trusted Jesus Christ as your Saviour, and you prayed that prayer and meant it from your heart, I declare to you that based upon the Word of God, you are now saved from Hell and you are on your way to Heaven. Welcome to the family of God! Congratulations on trusting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour. You have done the most important thing in life.

TEXT: Matthew 5:43-45:

43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.

44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

———-

Jesus begins His next rebuke of man’s interpretation of the Law by once again contrasting the human perspective and God’s perspective. Man says, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But God says, ‘Love your enemy also.’ Now, the idea of hating one’s enemy was never in the Law. That was something the Jews added on later to justify their disdain for other people groups such as the half-Jewish Samaritans, Romans, and other Gentiles. Because these people had not descended from Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and did not worship the God of Israel, they were seen by the Jews as enemies. In fact, the Jews’ hatred for other people groups was so well-known that the Roman government saw them as haters of humanity.

Since loving our neighbors is the standard, Jesus calls us to treat our enemies like our neighbors. But who is our neighbor? The word “neighbor” indicates one who is near or close in proximity. In the Old Testament, Jews lived only near other people who were just like them; so it was easy to love one’s neighbor. But, in the New Testament, Jews lived in close proximity with Romans, Greeks, Samaritans, and other Gentiles. Still they had defined neighbor as one who was a fellow pure descendant of the Hebrew patriarchs. However, this changed with Jesus. A.T. Robertson writes, “The Old Testament meaning of neighbor covers national or tribal fellowship. But the Christian sense of ‘neighbor’, expounded by Jesus in the parable of the Good Samaritan, includes the whole brotherhood of man. It is founded in love for man, as man, everywhere.”

Today we live in a much more cosmopolitan world than our first century counterparts. Our “neighbors” — the people who live and work in proximity to us — are likely to be quite different from us. Many who live side-by-side today have a different ethnic background, race, language, educational status, economic status, political leaning, social views, etc. We are commanded to love each of our neighbors. Not only that, but often the people we regard as our “enemies” are those in our own homes, our own churches, our own workplaces. You should get along with these people, but for some reason, you don’t. Maybe it is a difference in personality; maybe they dislike you because you’re a Christian; maybe you had a disagreement years ago that you never got over and every time you see each other, you start arguing. Whatever the case, Jesus commands you to love. Whoever you regard as your enemy, choose to love them anyway.

Now, if you are with us today and you do not know Jesus Christ as your Savior, allow me to show you how you can place your faith and trust in Him for Salvation from sin and Hell.

First, accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

Second, accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…”

Jesus Christ said in Matthew 10:28: “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Also, the Bible states in Revelation 21:8: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

Now that is bad news, but here’s the good news. Jesus Christ said in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead by the power of God for you so that you can live eternally with Him.

I am sorry for my sins, and today I choose to turn from my sins. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. I trust Jesus Christ as my Savior and I choose to follow Him as Lord from this day forward. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.

What is the Gospel? (Just Jesus Evangelistic Campaign, Day 311 since Jan. 20, 2017 / Day 678 since Jan. 1, 2016)

According to 1 Corinthians 15:1-4, the Gospel is embodied in these words: “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures.”

1 Corinthians 2:2 says, “For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.”

Regarding 1 Corinthians 15:1, Ray Stedman writes, “The gospel makes you stand. ‘Standing’ means you have a foundation; you have a place to handle life; you have a security to which you can resort at any time of pressure and problem and you can stand steady, no matter what kind of force comes against you. When you believe that God has forgiven your sins for Christ’s sake, when you believe that God loves you and has accepted you as His child, when you believe that He is working in you by the power of His resurrected life to enable you to love and to live as you ought and to give you power to say ‘No’ when you need to say ‘No,’ you have a place to stand that can handle anything that comes. That is what Paul said these Corinthians had. They were loved by God, therefore they had a place of emotional security. That is the first thing the gospel does.”

In the face of uncertain circumstances, the gospel can give you a sense of certainty. It reminds us that there is Someone who is above all principalities and rulers and authorities and powers. Someone who is in charge of all human events. Someone who conquered even death itself. When you slip, the gospel is the place you turn to to regain your footing. The gospel tells us that God loves us despite all our failures and weaknesses. He is ready to pick us up and wash away our sins through the blood of Jesus and to help us walk in His strength through the world.
