Now I understand what Jesus meant when He said: “the poor will have the Gospel preached unto them” (Luke 4:18). Nothing else seems to help. I still believe that in this age of advanced technology it is still the Gospel which is the power of God unto Salvation. No nation can ignore it and survive; no man can refuse it and live. The rich cannot buy it nor does the poor man deserve it; but in this terminal generation, the Gospel alone offers hope. Lord, help us to preach the Gospel. Nothing else is big enough to meet the need of this hour. Nothing else is powerful enough to overcome strongholds. Nothing else is gentle enough to meet the deepest need of the human heart.
