Romans 1:16

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ. For it is the power of God to salvation to everyone who believes; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. [The gospel is the ministry of the Spirit to totally free you from sin, as you repent from your old ways of selfishness on the inward cross of self-denial; to be washed, cleansed, and purified; to then be translated into kingdom of Christ; and then to live in union with Christ and God, on earth and forever. ]

Romans 8:24

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 24 For we are saved by hope;6 but hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he has already seen? [Salvation is to be experienced, seen, not presumed. We hope for what we have not yet seen, salvation, (in next verse), but we wait for it with patient endurance, to see it brought to us. In this present life we are saved by the hope of: being taught by God, seeing God, being delivered from sin, being cleansed, purified, perfected, brought to holiness, to be in union with God, being translated into the kingdom, and more. From the Word of the Lord within: "Hope releases the power of God to change you. There is no hope for anyone outside the power of God."]
