“I Am Not Ashamed”

Key Verse

“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

Text — Romans 1:14-17


Apostle Paul was a well-educated and an accomplished lawyer in his days. When he became a Christian, he set aside his worldly status to identify with the cross of Christ. In fact, he said that all he had acquired in the world were like dung unto him. This was because he recognized the fact that nothing in this world can be compared with the gospel of Christ. Despite the fact that the people of his days looked down on Christ’s followers, Paul boldly said that he was not ashamed of the gospel.

Some children today who claim to be friends of Jesus are ashamed of the gospel of Christ. They do not talk to their classmates about Christ, neither do they give out gospel literature like tracts, Christian magazines or any other gospel materials to the unsaved. They are ashamed of the cross of Christ. But the Bible says that Jesus despised the shame and endured the cross because of us. If you are truly born again, you have no reason to be ashamed of the gospel of Christ. It is the gospel of life and hope for all people. Rise up and tell your friends about Jesus. Be proud of Jesus. Tell your neighbours about Him. Do not be a secret disciple.
