Daily Fountain 2017 - From Faith To Faith









Thursday February 9

Bible Reading:     Romans 1: 1 - 17

Topic:         From Faith To Faith

The passage today introduces the meaning and message of the Gospel and also recounts Paul's desire to meet the Romans for a gospel fellowship unto edification.

Verses 3 - 5 summarize the central message of the gospel - Jesus Christ Who was born of the seed of David according to the flesh; He died and rose again in glory that by faith in Him, we shall experience the same death unto sin and the world and as such live the risen life of victory over sin, satan and the world. By race through faith, the Righteousness of God is revealed in us from faith to faith through continual fellowship with God in the Spirit of Jesus Christ.

Therefore, to the sinners, the message of the gospel is coming today advertising its power to save and deliver from sin; to the believer, the passage is a challenge to preach the gospel and not dogma and not be ashamed in doing so, for it is the power of God unto salvation.

Faithful preaching of this Gospel reveals the Righteousness of God from faith to faith.

Prayer:
Lord, help me experience the Gospel today and give me the grace to be bold in preaching it, Amen

Memory verse:   Romans 1: 16
"For I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ; for it is the Power of God unto Salvation to everyone that believes; to the Jew first and also to the Greek."
