Romans 1:16

For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.


Living an unashamed life for the gospel is hard.


The reason it is hard is because the enemy adamantly fights you on sharing your new found treasure with those around you. The most effective witness to those around you is living a Spirit filled life in front of them so they see first hand the power of Christ living through an ordinary person. When this happens it causes them to see a living God in you, and not just a set of rules and a signup sheet for Christianity.


Satan knows this is powerful, and he fights at it. He tries to make you feel ashamed about telling your experience to those around you, ashamed of your prayer in public, and ashamed of your stand on the Word. It is hard to live unashamed. It is easy to live being ashamed of the Gospel.


The Apostle Paul looked at it like this, “It is salvation and eternal life to those around me, if I am ashamed to tell them of it, I am robbing them of this great blessing God has given to me.” We also should have the same view. It  stifles the enemy's grip on someone who is not ashamed to spread the truth.


God has saved you and cleansed you from your sin by His blood, you have been justified, sanctified, and filled with His Spirit and now live in the liberty and freedom of Christ. Let that reality be seen by those around you. Let what Christ has done for you settle in your heart, then you won’t have to worry about being ashamed of the Gospel. Those around you will see your unashamed walk with a living God.


65-0711 - “Ashamed”

That's what it is when you know that you're talking to Him! You would think it was a foolish thing when somebody… When, I know that there is a few people in the world holds on to what I say to be the Truth. To stand here and say, "THUS SAITH THE LORD, I'm going to Arizona, there I'll meet seven Angels in a cluster," well, there was a group of man standing there to see it happen. The other night, saying it, "Los Angeles would fall into the ocean." But when you have met God, and the God Who doesn't fail, the God Who does exactly what He said He would do, He has always done it, you're not ashamed of it then. You don't have to walk back and be embarrassed about it; you can tell the whole world. When a man meets God, talks to Him, and the reality of God becomes his in his heart, he's not ashamed of It.
