“I am not ashamed of the gospel,
for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes,
to the Jew first and also to the Greek.”
Romans 1:16 English Standard Version
This rock reaching into the sky is a Lyons Formation fin consisting of beautiful sandstone formed when the Rocky Mountains pushed upwards. When a person stands at the edge of one of these fins it’s easy to see that at one time they laid flat. The jagged edges reveal layer upon layer of sandstone.
The fact that these fins stand at a perfect 90 degree angle to the earth is proof of the power that formed the Rocky Mountains.
The power that formed these sandstone fins is like the power that is at work in you; the power of the gospel
What is the gospel?
It is the good news of God’s love for you.
It is the good news that God sent his Son, Jesus Christ, to die for you.
It is the good news that Jesus lives for you.
It is the good news, which empowers change in your life.
This good news is the power that causes you and me to stand up in this broken and decaying world with the news that God isn’t dead. He is still the power of change in our lives.
