“I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes.” Romans 1:16
God’s men should expect our initiative to ignite His power and the gospel to deliver a powerful blow to the heart. God’s man has an even greater promise. The power is always going to be there when he jumps into the mission of rescuing people. He will be carried, supported, and improved whether or not the person receives Christ. He will feel the power and energy that only come after obedience.
More times than not when sharing my faith, I have experienced something even greater than personal satisfaction — the power of salvation. Each incident of the sharing of the gospel has proven to me that God’s power is waiting to be unleashed if we move against fear and reason to share our Lord with someone. That is the real eye-opener.
The goal is to get to this place of responsibility, availability, and all-important expectancy. With such faith in the gospel’s power, our small role becomes clear and we learn to confidently trust in its ability over our own. In fact, when we risk sharing our faith frequently, our experience of God’s power enables us to say, “I am not ashamed of the gospel because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes.” This is where every God’s man gets to be, in every facet of life. The problem is most men hedge their bets and stop short. We don’t experience the confidence until we risk sharing the gospel to get the results.
Thank you, Father for the power of your Holy Spirit within me, for I am not ashamed of the Gospel.
