Day 293 –
Unashamedly living by Faith!
Romans 1:16-17 “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. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith, as it is written, “The righteous shall live by faith.”
Jesus spoke mighty words.
Some of Jesus words may be found to be harsh, yet all were spoken out of a place of love and truth. The gospel, itself, repeats the life and words of Christ 4 different times by 4 different men. Reiterating the truth, through explanation of the way to salvation, and giving a very vivid example of the life we should live, Christ magnified.
Jesus shows no partiality. He came for all!
Being born into humble beginnings, brought up in a modest family, and dying a shameful death, our life shouldn’t look any better. Instead, He gave us the greatest gift of all, eternal life leading us directly to eternity.
How, may I ask, can we then be ashamed?
We are speaking of the living God, by His Word and His Truth.
If it weren’t for the gospels and my faith that grew through them, my life would’ve ended long ago. Yet God saw something in me that I didn’t see in myself. He stepped off His thrown, picked me up out of the muck, dusted me off, and saved me from utter despair.
He gave me hope.
He saw my differences and my challenges and He smiled. He knew my natural awkwardness and still found me worthy. He made me open and honest and told me to speak.
I am not ashamed, I am honored, I am blessed, I am saved!
Let’s live our life unashamed, by faith, Christ Magnified!
