Gospel Godliness: The Message of Titus

We as a church love the gospel. We love the preaching of the gospel. Yun ang prayer natin palagi na magpatuloy na maging passion ng church natin—a passion for the gospel of Jesus Christ. Pero yung passion na yun ang prayer din natin na maging passion natin for godliness o yung matuwid, tama at banal na pamumuhay. Sabi ni Kevin DeYoung, “There is a gap between our love for the gospel and our love for godliness. This must change” (The Hole in Our Holiness, 21).

Gospel Power: The Message of Romans

Para kanino ang gospel? For unbelievers? Yes. For us believers? Yes also! Kaya nga nasasabik siya na i-preach ang gospel sa kanila na mga believers na (1:15). Why? Paliwanag niya, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek” (1:16). Power of God. Itong salitang ito (dunamis) ay ginamit din sa verse 4, tumutukoy sa kapangyarihan na bumuhay kay Cristo mula sa mga patay. Kung ‘yan ay “power of God” imagine kung anong klaseng kapangyarihan ang nasa gospel! If you are underestimating the gospel, you are underestimating God.
