Proclaim It with Gladness!

Romans 1:16

For I am not ashamed of the gospel: it is the power of God for salvation to every one who has faith, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.

Today’s verse sums up virtually everything Paul had to say about the new covenant in Christ.  It is the power of God.  It saves.  It is there for absolutely anybody from great saints to the persons with the feeblest ability to trust God (Paul does not say how much faith is required).  And it is limited by no ethnic boundaries whatsoever.  Of such a gospel there is nothing to be ashamed.  Proclaim it with gladness!
