The Power of the Gospel
Are you ashamed of Jesus Christ? Are you ashamed for friends, family, and coworkers to know that you are a Christian? Jesus was not ashamed of you when he was beaten, mocked, spat upon, crucified, and hung on a cross. He did all that for you because He loved you. We should not be ashamed of Him, and Paul boldly states in this verse that he is not ashamed of Christ. Paul recognized that through his testimony, the power of God can convict the hearts of the lost. You should not be afraid to let everyone know that you are Christian. As the old saying goes, "You may be the only Bible someone will ever read." You may be the only Christian that crosses paths with someone. Are you shining bright for Christ? Is your testimony glorifying God, or are you letting your guard down? You don't have to perfect, no one is, but God wants to use you. It's His power through you that can point lost souls to Christ.
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
Romans 1:16 (KJV)
