"For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God
to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for
the Greek.” (Romans 1:16)
Jesus didn't half-way die to bring us salvation. He went all the way, and we must go all the way in accepting Him. There is nothing to be ashamed of in our faith. It is the only way--the only power--that can bring salvation after death for those who believe. He died for everyone whether they are of Jewish descent or gentiles of any nation, race, culture or background. Be sold out to Christ. Be a living witness. Allow your life to draw others closer to Him--the truth. You may be the only stepping stone to Christ they will ever see or hear even if it is through your job or at school among your peers. Our daily lives mean more than we realize and the battle zone doesn't always take place outside of us, but sometimes inside of us, as we decided which days and in what circumstances we will be used by God. Be a stepping stone to Christ, not a stumbling block.
