All I have to say about the word and the things found there is – “If it works, DO IT!!!!
If we find something that works we would be considered foolish to abandon those ways for something that does not work.
∑ I have found that thinking before I open my mouth and speak usually works best.
∑ I have found that opening the garage door before I try to drive my car into the garage works best.
∑ Its true that opening your mouth before trying to put food into it works best.
∑ I have found that here in America driving in the right hand lane of the road works best.
∑ I have found that if you want to get somewhere and don’t know the directions to that location there is a member of our congregation that you don’t want to follow.
My point is, that if you find something that works – DO IT!! If you find something that works don’t look for something else but do what you know will work in what ever situation you are in.
I have found that the gospel works. In taking a life that has been wasted by sin and the influence of the world - the gospel works.
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.
The gospel of Jesus Christ is the death, burial and resurrection. That is that Jesus died on Calvary’s cross. He was buried in a tomb for three days and he rose again from the grave on the third day. That is the gospel and it is the power of God unto salvation.
If it works – DO IT!!
¸ Don’t go looking for another gospel that suits you just a little better.
¸ Don’t go looking for a gospel that will allow you to do what you want to and still feel good about yourself in the process.
¸ Don’t look for a gospel that will make you just a little more comfortable and appease your conscience but still let you live like you want to.
But follow the gospel of Jesus Christ. There is no other gospel.
6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:
7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.
8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
9 As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.
10 For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.
11 But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man.
12 For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.
What is the gospel?
1 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;
2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
