Not Ashamed!

The Apostle Paul spent most of the second half of his life traveling the then-known world evangelizing the lost. Everywhere he went, he proclaimed the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ. During his life he preached to Jews, Gentiles, educated, barbarians, kings, slaves, governors, men, women, prisoners, … Paul preached where people believed, and Paul preached where people rejected. Paul preached to idol worshipers, and he preached to monotheists. Everywhere Paul went, he wanted to exalt Christ. You see, Paul had great love for Christ and great boldness for Christ.

In so many ways, Paul’s life could be summarized in the words of Romans 1:16: “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.” What a testimony—I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ!

Paul was not ashamed of the gospel because of its subject—Christ. The gospel is about Christ. What a great Savior and Lord! But Paul also was not ashamed because he knew what the gospel could do in the life of a person who believed: it would bring salvation. O how lives would change if people would believe the gospel! Knowing our great Savior and knowing the power of the gospel, we too should preach the gospel, unashamed.
