“I Am Not Ashamed” (2)

October 02, 2013

“I am not ashamed of the gospel.” Ro 1:16

As a follower of Christ you can also say, “I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth.” Our gospel is not education or sophistication, but salvation. It’s not reformation or rehabilitation, but redemption from the penalty and the power of sin. The Bible says, “If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” (2Co 5:17). This is not the old car with a new set of plugs, points and a carburetor, it’s a brand new model. Notice the words, “To every one that believeth.” By placing your trust in Christ you are forgiven from all sin, clothed in Christ’s righteousness, made fully acceptable in God’s sight, and qualified for heaven. You ask, “How long does a prayer for salvation have to be?” The thief on the cross prayed only nine words: “Lord, remember me when You come into Your kingdom” (Lk 23:42 NKJV). The publican in the temple prayed only seven words: “God be merciful to me a sinner” (Lk 18:13). When Peter was sinking in the Sea of Galilee he only had time for three words: “Lord, save me” (Mt 14:30). And the good news is—Christ saved them all. You ask, “How do I receive this life-changing power?” By faith! “For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved. As the Scripture says, ‘Anyone who trusts in him will never be put to shame’” (Ro 10:10-11 NIV).
