Hearing the Gospel is one thing – receiving the Gospel is another

Hearing the Gospel brings Salvation to people’s attention. Receiving the Gospel gets people saved.

When Christ commissioned men to scatter the Gospel around the globe His intent was for people to “receive” the power of Salvation.

One thing people receive is forgiveness from all past sins. Another thing is a changed moral character produced by God. God’s power that gives man a holy heart is defined by, “Grace”. Grace is what saves us. Grace is what changes us. Grace is what makes men holy and right. By Grace we are saved.

Grace is the power of God’s Gospel bestowed to believers in Christ. The power of the Gospel brings Salvation into the human soul. Many have heard the Gospel but only few actually receive it. When they do actually receive it God changes man morally from sinner to saint. Simple.

The Gospel generates power enough to save the soul and cleanse the heart from sin. The Gospel is preached. The Gospel is heard. The Gospel is received when a sinful man is broken. God’s Gospel is enough to break a sinner. God’s Gospel is enough to steer man in obedience and a good conduct. The Gospel causes men to mind God and to be subject to His authority and presence.

The Gospel “generates” power from hearing about Christ. When the Gospel is received it gives men a new spiritual birth that comes from above. Christ is thus manifested in the make-up of a believing heart.

Hearing about Christ is one thing but actually receiving Him is another.

About rickroehm

Since 1988 I’ve been writing and doing service for the Lord. It all began in 1987 after a personal walk began with the Lord. This personal walk with the Lord I speak of turned into extensive Bible studies and later evolved into blogging in early 2000. At present I write, author, and publish several different sites on the Internet. My Blogs contain a vast library of Theological writings, teaching videos, and preaching audios that currently go around the globe for the cause of Christ. I write at Christian Blessings on Wordpress, Holy Hubert Lindsey Group on Facebook, Churches on Trial at Google, publish You Tube videos, record sermons at holy.sermon.net, etc. I also pastor a Church called the Upper Room in Williamsburg, Ohio . My secular Blog called Southwestern Ohio Fishing on Wordpress is where I write about experiences with my son and fishing partner Chad where we together enjoy Mother Nature’s beauty mixed with Father God’s creation. At Southwestern Ohio Fishing Blog I also publish favorite recipes for those who enjoy eating and cooking as much as this writer does. Thanks for sharing your time and life with this writer at the Blogs. Here's more access to my ministry and fishing Blog if you'd care to check them out further.

    One has to accept Jesus as personal Saviour to be saved. Listening and agreeing to the salvation message are not enough.
