Verse of the Day

Romans 1:16

For I am not ashamed of this Good News about Christ. It is the power of God at work, saving everyone who believes—the Jew first and also the Gentile.

Romans 1:16

Not Ashamed

The gospel is good news. It is good news because God took what was wrong and difficult, and made it good and right for believers. The cross seemed so wrong. Why would God allow His Son to die that way? At the time of His death, His family and followers probably did not see it as good news. However, God showed His power through Jesus when He was resurrected. This became good news. Jesus was the sacrifice, the lamb slain for the sins of man, and was raised to life, new life.

This good news is ours if we choose to believe and accept His gift of sacrifice. At the moment of salvation, He gives us His Holy Spirit living and breathing inside of us. So that same power that raised Jesus from the dead, is active inside of us. That is good news!

A Prayer to Remember

Dear Lord,
Thank you for your gift of salvation. Help me remember that your power lives inside of me. Lead me and guide me as I walk throughout this life. Thank you for the good news. Amen
