The Gospel – the Power of God – in China

Of all the things we might turn to – creation, transformed lives, etc – it is to the gospel of Christ and its power to save which the Apostle Paul turns to to highlight the power of God:

For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile. (Rom 1v16)

It is great to see even the Telegraph aware of God’s powerful gospel as it reports that China is ‘on course to become the most Christian nation in 15 years.’

“It is a wonderful thing to be a follower of Jesus Christ. It gives us great confidence,” beamed Jin Hongxin, a 40-year-old visitor who was admiring the golden cross above Liushi’s altar in the lead up to Holy Week.

“If everyone in China believed in Jesus then we would have no more need for police stations. There would be no more bad people and therefore no more crime,” she added.
