TRUTH FOR TODAY
Glenn E. Hawkins, Evangelist
THE POWER OF GOD 
Sin is the power of Satan unto damnation (James 1:13-15). But according to Romans 1:16, the “gospel is the power of God unto salvation.” It is the only power that can break the grip of sin and set man free.
The gospel is God’s convincing power. The hearing of it, or the reading of it, produces faith. “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” (Romans 10:17). The gospel is also God’s convicting power. Those on Pentecost were “pricked in their heart” when they heard the gospel and wanted to know what to do to be saved. [more next week]
