If you are reluctant to talk about the gospel with your kids, you are not alone. In this passage, Paul gives us three reasons why he was able to courageously proclaim the message of Christ to a skeptical audience. It is the gospel of Christ, it is the power of God, and the result is salvation to everyone who believes.
The fact that it came directly from Christ gives the gospel authority. It is a message from the King Himself! And, the gospel carries the power of God the very power that raised Christ from the dead. But the best reason to be courageous is that the effect of believing and trusting the gospel is salvation freedom from sin and an eternal inheritance in heaven.
For I am not ashamed of the Gospel (good news) of Christ,for it is God’s power working unto salvation [for deliverance from eternal death] to everyone who believes witha personal trust anda confident surrender andfirm reliance, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.
