Romans 1:16 NIV
For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God…
What is the gospel? Literally gospel means ‘good news’. To Roman ears this would have meant good news of victory in battle. To the disciples, it meant the news of Jesus’ death on the cross. Sounds embarrassing but why be ashamed of this, because in this moment of weakness, God’s great victory over sin and death is achieved as revealed triumphantly in the resurrection.
Celebrate our God’s victorious power of love today!
