    What makes me delighted is that this Gospel of our Lord Jesus does not only come in Word but also in Power. This power is available also for every believer. May I know and understand that. I need this power to be a dispenser of God's grace, God's love. A preacher of His Word. Lord , help me.

    John chapter 3 verse 16 answers this question for us very nicely.

    Jesus gave his perfect human life as a ransom to repay the perfect, everlasting life which Adam lost by disobeying Jehovah God in the Garden of Eden. Anyone who believes, repents and exercises faith in Jesus' ransom sacrifice in behalf of Adam's descendants(us), can be saved and have the wonderful hope of living a healthy life forever on an peaceful earth. See John ch17vs3, and Rev ch21 vs3,4,5.

    For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, 1 Thessalonians 5:9. Thank You Father for the loving assurance that You will save all who love You in sincerity of heart. In CHRIST we are SAVED. Amen. The obedient who love the LORD and SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST in sincerity will be saved from wrath. The disobedient who believe they are appointed to the wrath of Great tribulation and try to deceive others to believe the same will suffer wrath.
