Not Ashamed

Updated: Sep 14, 2022

As Paul began writing to the church at Rome, he told them how much he wanted to come to them and preach the gospel. Then he said in 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.” Paul was not ashamed of the gospel and was ready to preach it. The gospel is the only message that is powerful to save. Let the powerful nature of the gospel motivate you to declare it initially and continually.


Knowing that the gospel is the saving message, be motivated to declare it to the lost. The world lives contrary to God and His Word, but don’t let their lifestyle or their potential or actual response stop you from spreading the good news. Think about what can happen in their lives if they submit to the Lord Jesus Christ. Let that motivate you to speak to the lost initially.


But also let the power of the gospel motive you to speak continually. When you proclaim the gospel and people reject, don’t develop a mindset that assumes everyone will reject. Some will respond and be saved, but you have to keep going. In going door-to-door evangelizing, think of what the Lord could do in the person’s life if he would believe. This perspective helps keep the next conversation fresh and hopeful. It also helps you to have compassion on that person, even though many others have rejected. Be motivated to evangelize because of the divine power of the gospel.
