Ashamed of Gospel
Today, Ann posted a video of her first chapter of the Romans Project. Also as we read the Bible in a Year, Romans chapter 1 was our reading for the day. It’s had my head spinning.
Think on this: “For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first ad also to the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith unto faith, as it is written, “The righteous shall live by faith” (Romans 1:16&17).
Here’s a confession I had to make out loud. I have been ashamed of the gospel. Embarrassed by my gifting, I’ve held my tongue here in my writing, in one-on-one conversation, and in group settings.
