Trinity Lutheran School – August 2018 Newsletter Article.

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 and also to the Greek.  Romans 1:16 ESV

What a powerful witness Paul gives us in Romans 1:16.  The Gospel is truly God’s power that saves me, you, and everyone who believes.  The Gospel of Jesus the Christ, who came down from heaven and was made man so that He might die for the sins of all humans.  We are saved through faith in Him.

But on a second look, Paul also admonishes me.  Not directly, but when he says that he is not ashamed of the Gospel, I realize that I do not always do likewise.  In fact I would be found lacking for times in my life that I boldly proclaimed the Gospel.  Whether that be verbally or in my actions.

If you are like me at all, you can remember times that you could and should have been forthcoming with words of comfort from God.  Times when you just felt that socially it was not appropriate.  Or maybe it is at work, where you cannot be open about your faith to clients, customers, or students.

Even more so, I think I have failed to act as if I am totally dependent on Jesus for everything.  The old saying, “Actions speak louder than words”, certainly applies here.  When we say one thing but our actions are contrary, people see us as hypocrites.

But the good news, or Gospel, is that Jesus is the Christ.  He did secure our salvation through His suffering and death.  He forgives our sins, even those of weak faith.  He forgives us even when we are not as forthright in being unashamed of the Gospel.
