The Power of God for Salvation

“I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile.”

(Romans 1:16)

Are you ashamed of the Gospel?  Of course not!  How about at work, at the store or at the diner?

The Gospel is the power of God for the salvation of the world.  That makes it about the most powerful force in the universe.  The power of the Gospel can move mountains… and it can change lives; it is powerful indeed.  As Christ’s ambassador, it is the most powerful force in your arsenal, and is one that we all must respect and be bold enough to bring up.  Here’s another way of looking at it: Do you love people?  Do you care about your neighbor; would you help him or her out if they had a problem?  If so, how can we let them die without hearing the Gospel from someone they know and trust?

Just think, God put you where you are and gave you the glorious message of power; the Gospel.  Can we keep it to ourselves?

  1. Great little post. Over the last few years whenever I quote that verse I have gotten into the habit of quoting verse 17 along with it to show that God reveals the righteousness He expects and desires Himself and not one that we get to pick or choose or make up ourself.

    It was the passage that compelled Martin Luther!
