WHAT “GOSPEL” ARE YOU BEING FED WITH?
ACCORDING TO THE APOSTLE PAUL, SOUND DOCTRINE CONFORMS TO THE GLORIOUS GOSPEL OF THE BLESSED GOD, WHICH WAS ENTRUSTED TO HIM. (1Tim 1:10b-11) “And for whatever else is contrary to the sound doctrine that conforms to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which he entrusted to me.”
THIS GLORIOUS GOSPEL WAS REVEALED TO HIM BY THE RESURRECTED CHRIST HIMSELF. (Gal 1:11-12) “I want you to know brothers that the gospel I preached is not something that man made up. I did not receive it from any man, nor was I taught it; rather, I received it by revelation from Jesus Christ.”
IN FACT, HE DEDICATED HIS LIFE IN PREACHING THE “GOSPEL OF GOD’S GRACE” TO THE GENTILES.
(Act 20:24) “However, I consider my life worth nothing to me, if only I may finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the Gospel of God’s Grace.”
IN HIS ZEALOUSNESS TO PRESERVE THE INTEGRITY OF THE GOSPEL OF GOD’S GRACE, THE APOSTLE PAUL PRONOUNCED A CURSE (anathema) TO ANYONE WHO WILL PREACH A GOSPEL CONTRARY TO THE GOSPEL OF GOD’S GRACE HE RECEIVED FROM CHRIST.
(Gal 1:7b) “Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ.
(Gal 1:8) But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed.
(Gal 1:9) As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed.”
BRETHREN, THERE IS A SOUND DOCTRINE, THE “GOSPEL OF GOD’S GRACE” REVEALED BY THE RESURRECTED CHRIST TO THE APOSTLE PAUL THAT WAS MEANT FOR THOSE WHO ARE IN CHRIST. THIS GOSPEL SPEAKS OF THE GRACE OF GOD THROUGH CHRIST JESUS AND HIS FINISHED WORK ON THE CROSS AND ALL THE BENEFITS THEREOF. IT SPEAKS OF THE NEW COVENANT THAT CHRIST MEDIATED WITH THE FATHER.
IF YOU ARE NOT BEING FED WITH THIS WORD OF TRUTH, WHAT ARE YOU BEING FED WITH?
