In Romans 1:14-16 the apostle Paul gave testimony, saying, “I am debtor both to the Greeks, and to the Barbarians; both to the wise, and to the unwise. So, as much as in me is, I am ready to preach the gospel to you that are at Rome also. 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.”
Brethren, how seriously do we take our Lord’s commission to preach the gospel of Christ to the lost world around us? How ready and committed are we to preach the gospel at any given opportunity? How much confidence do we have in the gospel to convict and save the lost? How faithful are we in our gospel witness from day to day? In Romans 1:14-16 the apostle Paul delivered a testimony under the inspiration of God the Holy Spirit concerning his own faithful service in gospel witness. Thereby the apostle is presented as an example for our faithfulness in gospel witness. Even so, by that example we are taught three truths concerning this matter.
