    The verse that stuck out to me was verser 16 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. 17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith,[e] as it is written, “The righteous shall live by faith.”

    It is so clear that we are called to preach the gospel to everyone and not be ashamed or fear what others may say. As long as we put our faith in God, he will guide our footsteps, give us the words to speak, and help us be a light in this dark world.

    • Bridgette, thanks for sharing the verse that stuck out to you. I agree that verses 16-17 are extremely compelling. The Apostle Paul sets an example for us of how to boldly associate ourselves with the gospel message. His trust in the power of God through the gospel message clearly outweighs any fears he may have associated with other people, his reputation, or even the appearance of foolishness. He has placed his faith in Jesus Christ.

    Verse 21 and 22 really jumped out at me because people always want to talk about how God is loving and ignore that God is just. They also want to relegate God to a smaller role because if they admit who God really is, they are accountable to God. I believe people who are living in sin do not want to be accountable to God and they want to blame God for all the trouble in the world because it’s easier to blame others then it is to take responsibility.

    • Jonathon, thanks for sharing your insights. The encouragement to take responsibility for personal action seems to be a rare gem in our current culture. Hiding behind deceit and passing blame seem to be a more popular option. This passage holds an excellent challenge to more accurately asses the true need we have to receive salvation from Jesus Christ. Great post, thanks for sharing Jonathon!
