Matthew, Mark, Luke, & John are called the Gospel’s because it studies the life of Jesus Christ.
Now as we get deeper to understand the TRUE gospel... it's according to our obedience to God.
The real gospel is transformation & the REAL power of God!
God's word should transform us.
His Spirit does that regeneration in our life everyday!
24 “Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: 25 and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock. 26 “But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: 27 and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.” (Matthew 7:24-27)
In Matthew 16, it shares what the true gospel is about...
Knowing that our flesh & spirit are warring against each other daily, Galatians talks about how they are contrary towards one another.
21 I find then a law, that evil is present with me, the one who wills to do good. 22 For I delight in the law of God according to the inward man. 23 But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. 24 O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? 25 I thank God—through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, with the mind I myself serve the law of God, but with the flesh the law of sin. (Romans 7:13-25)
Our flesh is always present with us because are flesh can't leave us as along as we are on this earth.
You can't cast out the flesh, but you must crucify the flesh.
The flesh wants to glorify self.
The Spirit wants to glorify God.
20 I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me. (Galatians 2:20)
Our firm foundation is Jesus Christ.
& we must be deeply rooted in Him... that no matter what wind comes, we'll still be able to stand because of how deeps our roots are.
The window blows, the divorce comes, the bankruptcy, the job fires you.. no matter what, the Lord is your strong tower, He is your fortress, He is your rock!
The most safest place to be in this world.. is in the will of God.
The most dangerous place to be in this world... in in the will of you.
A true Christian life, is an interrupted life.
