Not Ashamed

Romans 1:14-16  (ID: 1989)

At the beginning of Paul’s letter to the Roman church, he made a striking statement about the Gospel that he preached. As Alistair Begg explains, Paul was bold in his declaration of love for the Good News and explicitly clear about its power to save anyone, irrespective of race, ethnicity, or culture. Implicit in this proclamation is an invitation to experience the Gospel’s saving power by trusting in Jesus Christ.


14I am under obligation both to Greeks and to barbarians,4 both to the wise and to the foolish. 15So I am eager to preach the gospel to you also who are in Rome.

The Righteous Shall Live by Faith

16For 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.
