An Urgent Response to The Harvest
October 31, 2021 • Jay Baines • Romans 1:14–16
Robert Haldane reminds us, "The Gospel, which is the word of God, is quick and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword. By it, as the word of truth, men are begotten by the will of God, and through the faith of the Gospel they are kept by His power unto salvation. The exceeding greatness of the power of God exerted in the Gospel toward those who believe, is compared to His mighty power which he wrought in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead, and set Him at His own right hand, Eph. 1:19. Thus, while the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness, to those who are saved it is the power of God" (Romans, p. 47).
