Text: John 9:1-41
The phrase, ‘work(s) of God’ appears approximately nine times in the book of John. The Greek term ‘ergon’ used in place of ‘work(s)’ gives the meaning effort. When you interpret these clues in the context of the gospel (John penned it to prove the messianicship of Jesus Christ), it is clear that John intended to communicate that God is making continuous efforts to set human race free from sin and bondage or to provide salvation.

B. The word gospel derives from the Old English g?d-spell (rarely godspel), meaning “good news” or “glad tidings”. There are plenty of evidence that it contains the supernatural power of God to convict sinners and bring them to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.
C. There’s no demon – no human being capable of rendering it powerless unless Christians stop preaching the good news. In today’s sermon lets observe the supernatural power of the Gospel.

We should be careful to note the two things here contrasted. It does not necessarily mean the gaining of the present and the loss of the future, for those who lose the future do not necessarily get the most out of the present. Nor does it mean that in order to gain the future we must lose the present – for those who gain the future really get the best out of this life too.
