Two Words: Rest and Power

Is it possible to rest and still see miracles happen? Do the words rest and God’s power go together?  Or do we have to add words like works, self-effort, self-righteousness and paying the prize for the power of God?

We believe you will enjoy the two articles in this month’s newsletter. Pastor Tom Lipkin from Finland teaches about the simple Gospel being the Power of God, and Pastor Mike Walker from US explains how we can rest in the finished work of Jesus Christ and experience the fruits thereof.

The Gospel is the good news of what Jesus has already done! But unfortunately our focus is often on what we must do. Galatians 1:6 says, “I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel, which is not another, but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ.”

When we turn away from Jesus – whom do we then turn to? Most of the time the answer is: ourselves! Have I done enough, do I deserve this, am I good enough etc. These are all wrong questions. The right questions are: Did Jesus pay the full price? Did He finish the work? Is Jesus good enough? With a ‘Yes’ to these questions we can rest in the assurance of His finished work!

Be encouraged and let the Gospel be the power of God in your life and ministry!
