MORNINGTIME 2123
 
But THE Comforter, which is the HOLY GHOST , whom the Father will send in my name, he SHALL teach you all things, and BRING ALL THINGS TO YOUR REMEMBRANCE , whatsoever I have said unto you. John 14:26. Read this as an illustration. The Gospel IS the Power of God to change lives. Think of the Gospel as electricity. It can kill, or comfort. The Gospel can "kill" your pride and arrogance so quickly you're suddenly left with your raw sin filled life starring you in the face. It can comfort you in the midst of some horrific situation so that Peace floods your soul. The Gospel, IN THE HANDS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, will minister to you exactly as you need at exactly the right moment. Saved and unsaved alike can be changed by the Gospel. WHEN THE GOSPEL IS PREACHED, PEOPLE ARE CHANGED. When a preacher preaches without the Gospel, meaning lots of good stories, some silly jokes, and unbiblical ramblings, he's just passing time to get a paycheck. Preaching without The Gospel, it's like a NASCAR race car without an engine. It looks great, it's nice and shiny, it's custom fit just for you, BUT IT HAS NO POWER, IT CAN'T DO WHAT IT WAS DESIGNED TO DO, IT'S ALL SHOW AND GLITTER WITH NO SUBSTANCE. It's useless for its intended purpose. You, without Christ, may look like the perfect dad, the best worker, the most helpful person around the church, even as a hero in service to your country, but powerless for what the Lord designed you for. The world will love you, Christ doesn't know you, and all you have to look forward to is an Eternity in Hell. It takes the Power of God, the Gospel, to change you into what you were designed to do. That same Gospel will keep you all the rest of the days of your life, until you go home with Christ. A "christian" with no Gospel, no power, moves at the whims of those around him. He's useless to EVERYONE around him. He'll be cut down and thrown in the fire. Live in the world and die. Live in the Gospel and Live. How do you want to Live to, Be Blessed?
