The Gospel is the Power of God

This message was preached August 24, 2008 at Valley Church in Smithfield, Utah. "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written. The just shall live by faith." (Romans 1:16-17) The Gospel which saves us is the power of God and the wisdom of God; for no one was saved by their own power, nor their own wisdom, but by the working alone of God's mighty power. The greatest need of man is righteousness with God, but it is also his greatest impossibility. Only through the Gospel is that righteousness secured, not by the strength and will of the flesh, but by the power and wisdom and God. Listen below:

Excellent sermon. Thank you. I will be praying for your work among the mormon people. May God turn many of their hearts to Himself - may they come to see the power and wonder of His grace.

Hey Eli, thanks for the encouraging comment/email you left in response to my blog-notice of me preaching again. Some technical difficulties somewhere with my blog not showing your comment, but I did receive it. I'm planning to be up your way on Thanksgiving, if you're around perhaps we could get together for some preaching at the Fredericton Market again?

Thanks again bro,
