The Path to Salvation
“I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile.”
The Jewish people were special in God’s eyes, and His favor will always be upon them. The apostle Paul tells us, however, in the scripture above that these privileges were not extended to the Jews because of their superior merit, or because of God’s partiality toward them. It was necessary that the invasion of the world by the gospel begin at a particular point with a particular people, who in turn were responsible to carry that gospel to the other nations. The Jews were chosen for this special task, and had the responsibility of spreading the gospel throughout the world. When we look at the history of the Jewish people we see that they have been blessed by God through the centuries when they have obeyed and followed His commands. They have prospered and conquered all their enemies when they followed God. We can also see that God has allowed them to be punished, humiliated and defeated when they have turned their backs on Him and His commands. God told the apostles to go into the world and preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and salvation. The gospel that we hear today in our churches and throughout our land is the result of what the apostles and the Jews began. The gospel of salvation is still being preached today throughout the world, and no one has an excuse for not receiving this free gift from God. We have been given the choice to follow God and have an eternal life, and receive his salvation by believing that his son Jesus Christ died for our sins. John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” If you do not know Jesus as your Lord and Savior, this could be your day of salvation, ask Jesus into your heart today as you are not promised tomorrow.
