UNDERSTANDING PAUL’S GOSPEL OF THE GRACE OF GOD IN LIGHT OF LEADING LOST PEOPLE TO CHURCH AGE SALVATION IN JESUS CHRIST by Geoffrey Grider Now The End Begins
On this episode of Rightly Dividing, we are not only going to demystify the gospel of the grace of God for you, so that you can understand it rightly divided, but we are also going to show you how to use it to lead a lost soul to Jesus Christ! It’s very hard to be a good witness for the Lord if you yourself have lingering doubts about exactly how to present the gospel to a lost person. As Bible believers, we understand that Paul is our apostle, and that what the Holy Spirit wrote through him is our doctrine, but it is essential that we understand that doctrine in the light of the whole Bible. When we do that, we get a proper understanding of how best to minister that gospel to the lost, and how to apply the power of it unto salvation. This study will not only increase your faith, but will also help to make you better equipped to bring the gospel to lost sinners who so desperately need it.

Lately, it seems that a lot of people are confused about the gospel of the grace of God and its saving power in the Church Age. There are those that think someone can only be saved after reading certain and specific verses found in the writings of the apostle Paul, like 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 for example. Those verses certainly tell us what the gospel for the Church Age is, no doubt, but how about other verses like John 3:16, the one that I got saved on? Hmm.
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:” 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 (KJB)
