The Gospel In Power

A. W. Pink (1886-1952)Whether or not the Gospel has come to me “in power and in the Holy Spirit” is to be ascertained by the effects produced in me: not transient effects—but permanent; not simply in my emotions—but in my life. If the Gospel has come to me “in power,” it has made me realize that I am a lost sinner—guilty and undone; it has made me realize that I can do nothing to save myself, nothing which can win God’s favor. If the Gospel has come to me “in power,” it has shut me up to Christ! It has not only revealed my dire need of Him—but has shown me how perfectly suited He is to my dreadful case, and how ready and willing He is to cleanse me from my sins and to heal my wounds. If the Gospel has come to me “in power,” it has made me come to Christ as an empty-handed beggar, casting myself on His mercy, and closing with His gracious offer to receive me, and by no means cast me out. If I have done this, it matters not an iota whether some particular verse of Scripture has been deeply impressed on my mind or not.

About Greg Coleman

I am a Particular Baptist who affirms the absolute sovereignty of the triune Godhead in all things. The fullness of the Godhead dwells in the God-man Jesus Christ. He is the Creator, Sustainer, Redeemer, Disposer and Judge of all that ever was, is now or ever shall be. Jesus Christ is the only mediator between God and men. He was made to be sin for his people and saved them from their sins by his substitutionary, sacrificial death on the cross thereby satisfying the justice and wrath of God against them. The sufficiency of his death to the satisfaction of God’s justice is proven by his physical resurrection from the dead and enthronement in glory at the right hand of the Father. Jesus Christ is coming again to judge the living and the dead. Every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved.
