       Behind the Gospel is definitely both power and righteousness. I saw, in my own life, how God changed me from a person wanting to do everything my way to a person wanting to be pleasing and obedient to him. This not because I have to obey God, but interestingly enough, because I love him and want to obey him. Often times people believe in God because their eyes are opened in a moments time and they accept the truth of the Gospel. Paul noted of Christians: “For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us” (2 Corinthians 4:6, 7, ESV). God opens people’s eyes to see the truth behind what he is telling them. Now, some people see the truth, but then they quickly forget it or chose not to believe it because they are afraid that following Jesus will affect their life experience.
