Not ashamed of the Gospel

Romans 1:16-17 ESV

[16] For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. [17] For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith, as it is written, “The righteous shall live by faith.”

 

Not ashamed – not afraid to believe in the Gospel and to share it openly with confidence and passion

It is the power of God for salvation – The Gospel is God’s message, not ours.  We do not have to prove the Gospel because the Gospel is proof enough.  We also do not have to convince people who God is our what He has done.  God is more than capable of doing that.  All we need to do is realize we are the instruments that God uses to proclaim His glory.

In it the righteousness of God is revealed – It is only in believing, trusting, and clinging to the Gospel that we truly find the righteousness of God for our life.  It is only the Gospel that can make one’s life full of hope and purpose.  It is the Gospel that gives man life…and life more abundant.
