Are you ashamed? Culture tries to make us ashamed about our faith, portraying people of faith as stupid, insensitive, judgmental, and hypocritical. Are you ashamed? Are you willing to share your faith humbly and gently with those who do not know Jesus as their Lord? Are you ashamed? Your hero left heaven to come to earth and risk everything so that you could come home to heaven with him. This Gospel is powerful. This Gospel is transformational. This Gospel, and the salvation it brings, is for all people. So let's not be ashamed; let's be joyous and generous with this incredible gift that we have received. It was really exciting tonight to watch 8 young people minister for the Lord at the world’s largest McDonalds. What a joy it was to watch as they did puppets and painted faces and shared about God’s love with the boys and girls. It is great to see that they aren’t ashamed to share God’s love.
I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile.
— Romans 1:16
Dear Lord , please give us wisdom, sensitivity, and courage to share your wonderful story of grace with those around us who do not know Jesus as their Lord and Savior. In Jesus' name. Amen.
