Before the Church began, Jesus proclaimed that the gospel was to go to every culture and nation (Acts 1:8). The problem, however, is us. We are sinful, more deserving of punishment than His love. We fail often and over the same things. Yet God, in His sovereignty, still chooses to love us and desires to have a relationship with us; even use us in His ministry despite all of our sin, all of our weaknesses and all of our awkwardness. That’s how powerful the gospel is.
