From the Pastor...

jesusgospel

As I meditate this morning about what Jesus did on the cross in paying the price for our sin, I'm reminded that God's Word clearly states that this was God saying "I love you!" (Romans 5:8) What an amazing love! What a powerful story! The gospel is "the power of God unto salvation" (Romans 1:16), but what amazes me is the concept that the gospel needs to be improved, watered down to be less offensive, sugar coated with the flavor of "it's all about you!" Simply put, the gospel doesn't need adding to because it can't possibly be improved!

My fear is that the "gospel" being shared today is not the life-changing powerful gospel of the Bible that produces real salvation because it was changed to be more appealing, and the attraction was more a selfish motive of adding Jesus to fix problems instead of trusting Jesus to deal with sin. The tragedy is that many are responding to this kind of message and led to believe that they are saved. They have been given a "bill of goods" that really brings confusion and leads to multiple "salvation experiences." I've recently heard stories of grandparents being so concerned with how many times their grand kids are getting "saved." A real salvation experience recognizes sin and the need to trust Jesus as Lord and Savior. A real salvation experience understands that we've blown it and it's either Jesus or nothing. A real salvation experience is all about Jesus and not about me anymore. Jesus isn't a friend that you add to your life, He is your life! He is not just your Savior but your Lord and Savior. What God does will bring everlasting change, and what man does will not last! So rest easy pastor, youth minister, volunteer, or leader because salvation is God's work. Just share the gospel and leave the results up to Him, and when the result is salvation it will last.

This Sunday, and every day, may we share the gospel as it is and trust God to do the work that only He can do in changing lives through His power! Come on minister, don't give your self so much credit that you think you can improve on the most powerful message the world has ever known, the gospel message! Jesus is what makes the gospel great, not you. Thank you Jesus for paying it all on the cross and demonstrating the greatest love ever!

-Pastor Mark
