For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth

The power of the gospel must never be overlooked. It lives in the hearts of men. It annihilates the evil nature and iniquitous disposition.

It resides in the heart and soul of Nicky Cruz.

Nicky Cruz was a young, cold, heartless, murdering, New York City gang leader when he was subdued by the only power outside the grave that could stop him.....

Enter David Wilkerson.

A zealous preacher, the fearless Wilkerson entered a war zone and did the unthinkable.

The whole account was documented by Wilkerson in his best selling book, The Cross and the Switchblade; a book that enthusiastically declares the power of the gospel and how miracles really do happen when it is boldly and faithfully applied.

Nicky Cruz is a living testimony of the power of the gospel to turn even the most hardened, vile sinner into a repentant, loving disciple of Jesus Christ. http://youtu.be/GB8mmCAm2S4

Jesus wants to gather you up and transform you. You have not yet sinned it all away. He will not reject those who have had their conscience pricked and have awakened form their sinful slumber/wicked rebellion. Jesus is mighty and willing to save. Forsake all further transgressions and lay your burdens down. This is a message for the masses; you needn't remain on the outside any longer.

The power of the gospel resides in the hearts of men, women and children everywhere. The Gospel message continues to change hearts across the globe.

Open your heart and allow yourself to be forgiven, and restored. The grace of God transcends all.

Where would we be without this truth?

There are no sinners so great, even in our day, that they will not find healing and deliverance in the mercy of Christ.

Jesus loves you and has forgiven you..... You just may not know it yet.....

One thing is for certain, Jesus did not die on the cross for nothing. Drink from the cup of salvation. His living waters runneth over (John 4:14).

The most potent thing you can say to a rebel is "Jesus loves you!" Those 3 words can cut through the coldest of hearts. Extreme sinners need extreme mercy..... Jesus is willing to pay your debt!
