Romans 1:16: “For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile.”
Most non Christians see gospel as foolishness and they would not read the Bible or go to church. Some Christians are ashamed of sharing the good news with non Christians as they are afraid to be different from the world. They do not see it as a real power that could transform the unchurched ones or they simply do not want to be in conflict with those people or offend them. They are wrong. They do not allow the power of God to flow through them.
Do you see the gospel as the power of God? It is if you believe. If you do not you make obstacles for the power to reach your life. Think about it. What is better: honor from God or honor from people? We have to choose our priorities. We have to put God first. Only then his power will be revealed to us and to those around. Let us not be ashamed of his good news that can save the entire world from eternal damnation.
