Christians Need to Hear the Gospel Too
March 10, 2023, by SLIMJIM
Christians: When you hear the Gospel preach, do you feel it’s something not for you, but for the non-Christians?
Now it is true that non-Christians need to hear the Gospel being preached; we want them to not only hear the Gospel but also believe and trust in the Gospel. Romans 1:16 makes it clear that the Gospel is the power of God to save sinners from the Wrath of God: “For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.”
Yet we must also not miss Romans 1:15 which indicates the Gospel is also for believers!
“So, for my part, I am eager to preach the gospel to you also who are in Rome.”
Note Paul here is addressing the Church in Rome (see Romans 1:1). The Church of course consists of believers. In addressing his listeners Paul in Romans 11:28 talks about his hearers as Christians: “In relation to the gospel they are enemies on your account, but in relation to God’s choice they are beloved on account of the fathers;” Paul in Romans 1:15 is saying he desires to preach the Gospel when he’s at the Church of Rome. In writing the letter to the Church, we have the Epistles of Romans reveal the deep theology of God’s Gospel to save sinners!
Paul’s intended destination when he wrote Romans is to go to Spain (see Romans 15:24, 28). Yet Romans 1:15 mentioned he wants to preach the Gospel to believers.
This shows us that as Christians we need to hear the Gospel too.
In fact, that’s how Christians grow; it is from meditating and focusing on the Gospel!
