“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.” (Romans 1:16, NASB95)
Our church has just begun a study of the Book of Galatians, and on Sunday, our founding pastor shared about his early years as a believer. Like me, he came to Christ in the '70s during the last years of the Jesus Movement. It brought up so many wonderful memories.
It was an exciting time, the Jesus Movement. But how drastically things have changed in the past 35+ years in America (and in the world). Last year we had a major political party vote to keep mention of God out of their platform. So sad.
So I just want to say that I am not ashamed of the gospel, the good news of Jesus Christ. It is the power of God for salvation. And I'm going to continue sharing my story whenever I can to whoever will listen.
The above Wordle is made from the words in Psalm 119. I hope it blesses you as you look at it the way it blesses me.
Have a great week, my WoP friends.
