A disciple

Romans 1:16  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.

There is supernatural power in the Gospel of Jesus Christ to do a work in the life of a person.  Yet sometimes Christians are fearful to share this power, opting instead to water down the Good News into something flowery and completely devoid of its power.  How can we do this when we know that one can only be saved through faith in Jesus?

So often we fear what people will think of us.  Maybe they’ll disrespect us.  Maybe they’ll persecute us or threaten us.  In some areas of the world, death may even be a consequence for sharing the Gospel.  But on the day of judgement, who will we stand before?  Men or God?

We have nothing to fear because the power is on God’s side, not on the world’s side.  On that day when we stand to give an account for what we did with our lives, it will be God we face, not the people who intimidated us.  So why not share the message that has the power for salvation?  Why not proclaim to the entire world how they can know God?

As disciples it’s our calling.
