Romans - God's Perfect Plan of Redemption
I have just begun a teaching series on the book of Romans for a Sunday school class at my church. I'm sure I'll be posting tidbits here and there as we go through this foundational letter from the Apostle Paul. In the meantime, I really love this verse found in Chapter I . . .
For I am not ashamed of the Gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes . . . (Romans 1:16).
Somehow, I think this verse will become very, very relevant to true Christians in the days ahead. It's hard to imagine being ashamed of the Gospel at the moment, but as pressure from an unbelieving, hostile culture steps up pressure against the church here in North America, I wonder how many will shine brightly, and how many will hide their light under a bushel?
It remains to be seen.
