“Our gospel came to you not simply with words but also with power, with the Holy Spirit and deep conviction.” 1 Thessalonians 1:5
The Gospel isn’t merely good information that tells us how to get saved. Rather the message comes with the power of God to bring conviction and the Spirit’s enabling to turn us from our sins. Now we can live a new life that pleases God. We aren’t saved because we learnt about God’s love and grace. We’re saved by faith because we have received his love and grace. We are recipients, not the initiators of God’s salvation.
