Although holding forth the name and gospel of Jesus Christ
will certainly bring forth the reproach and affliction of this present evil world,
there is no good reason whatsoever for us to be ashamed
of the testimony and gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.
For our Lord is God the Son, the Almighty Creator, the Anointed Savior,
and the Eternal Sovereign, whose name is above every other name;
and His gospel is the very power of God unto eternal salvation for lost souls,
the very power of God to abolish death,
and the very power of God to bring eternal life and immortality to light.
