DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
The Needs For The Gospel
Nobody is born a saint. All have sinned and come short of the glory of God (v. 23). God executes His redemptive plan through Jesus Christ so that we can be reconciled to God. God made Jesus Christ to pay for our sins so that we can be in right relationship with Him and be liberated from the power of sin. There is a need to preach the gospel to make everybody come to the knowledge of the truth. The only condition God requires for salvation is faith in Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour. The atoning death of Jesus has the power to produce the full desired effect of redemption when appropriated by faith. As a believer, you must proclaim it.
Point of Emphasis: Proclaim the power of God for salvation which is constantly fresh and relevant.
Prayer Point: Having been saved, help me to preach the gospel on daily basis.
