• Hi Guest!

    You may be aware that "big tech" has been aggressively censoring conservatives on Twitter, Facebook, Google, Instagram, YouTube and other social media platforms. This is tyrannical and suppressive towards Christians and conservatives.

    Please share Talk Jesus community on every platform you have to give conservatives an outlet and safe community to be apart of.

The Gospel Is Exciting

‘I have complete confidence in the Gospel; it is God’s power to save all who believe.’ Romans 1:16 GNT

One Sunday a woman fell asleep in church. Pointing to the man sitting next to her, the pastor said, ‘Please wake that lady up.’

The man replied, ‘Sorry, Pastor. You put her to sleep—you wake her up!’

Seriously, Paul tells us that the Gospel ‘is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes.’ (Romans 1:16 NKJV) The Greek word for ‘power’ is dynamis, from which we get the word dynamite. Talk about impact!

The Gospel changes people profoundly. Chuck Swindoll says: ‘The Gospel is like a sword sharpened on the stone of Scripture and tempered in the furnace of reality, relevance, and need. Of all the reactions a person may have to it, I can think of none worse than a yawn, a sleepy “so what”, or a bored “who cares?” Jesus met people where they were. His Word touched raw nerves. His preaching was a lot more “here-and-now” than it was “there-and-then”. He attacked hypocrisy and prejudice. He met people where they were, not where they ought to be. Angry young men, blind beggars, proud politicians, loose-living prostitutes, ignorant fishermen, naked victims of demonism, and grieving parents—He related to them all. His enemies misunderstood Him, but they couldn’t ignore Him. They hated Him, but they were never bored around Him. Do you want a new definition of failing the Lord? Here it is—using the Gospel to bore people! The Gospel isn’t some vague religious concept; it’s an exciting relationship with God that works in everyday life.’

And the people around you need it, so share it with them.
