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. ]

1 Corinthians 1:18

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 18 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing; but to us who are being saved the cross is the power of God.5 [Those who take up the inward cross of self-denial quickly experience the power of God to begin freeing them from sin. From the Word of the Lord within: "with the true gospel there is ample proof along the way."]

1 Corinthians 1:24

 24 But to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ is the power of God, and the wisdom of God.

2 Timothy 3:5

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power of it. Turn away from such people.1 [Their religion has a semblance or form of godliness, but without any power. They deny the power of God to cleanse them, purify them, and make them holy; therefore they have the hope of the hypocrite: to enter heaven, having died in their sins. From the Word of the Lord within: "There is no hope for anyone outside the power of God."]
