It’s a message that’s life-changing.
“It wipes away tears,” said Ruth Mbennah, Project Hannah (PH) Coordinator for Africa, in her presentation this morning. “Marriages are reconciled and lives are transformed. A river of peace is flowing into the hearts of men and women.”
One result of this message, said PH Asia Coordinator Serene Yang, is that “women are comforted in their distress.” Women pray together. TWR listener groups are established.
It leads to ministries of mercy like Hannah’s House in Sweden, for women needing refuge and protection. Strongholds are torn down. Those in bondage are set free.
This powerful, grace-driven, faith-based message is the gospel.
It’s all Greek to me!
In the New Testament, the word “gospel” shows up as the Greek noun euangelion. According to Strong’s Concordance, it’s repeated 76 times. Actually, it’s where we get the English word “evangelism.” Simply stated, though, it means “good news.”
What good news?
It’s the good news of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who “abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel” (2 Timothy 1:10). “Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures” and “was buried” and “raised on the third day” (1 Corinthians 15:3-4).
The power of the gospel to redeem a life is a gift of God’s grace through faith. Sinners are saved. It leads to repentance and worship. It sanctifies. It produces good works whenever the faithful biblical message is proclaimed and received by prepared hearts.
Through its gospel programs, TWR speaks hope in more than 200 languages worldwide via multimedia and in 59 languages through its Project Hannah women’s ministry alone.
What a privilege to be entrusted with this glorious gospel! Its power is displayed 24/7 in and through the hearts and lives of our TWR staff and listeners. Have you experienced it, too?
