16 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. 17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, "But the righteous man shall live by faith."
What Strikes Me Most Today
St. Paul is telling us that the the gospel is the power of God for salvation! For me, that means it is the key for me, my family, my friends, everyone, to get into heaven (which means living in eternal joy rather than eternal torment!). I better not be ashamed of the gospel. And if I'm not ashamed of it, I better let everyone know the secret of eternal happiness - then we will all be happier in this life and the next. I'm going to make it a point to mention this to at least one person in the next 24 hours.
