Today's Verse: Romans 1:16

I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes.
— Romans 1:16

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

For the rich and poor, young and old, weak and strong, thin and heavy, there is still just one message, one name, and one story that makes the eternal difference. That one message, story, and name are announced in the gospel — God's good news to the world in Jesus Christ. God's good news of life in Jesus Christ is the story, message, and hope for all.

VerseoftheDay.com, and our parent ministry, Heartlight.org, were blessed by the friendship, encouragement, and written content of Paul Faulkner. Paul, who was unashamed of the Lord and the gospel, recently graduated to be with Jesus. Please take a moment and honor him with us by learning a little more of Paul's story and what he means to you as a VOTD subscriber.

My Prayer...

Great Redeemer, make me more bold to proclaim the Gospel today. Give me eyes to see those who are waiting to be told. Fill me up with your Spirit so that I will not be ashamed but will gladly proclaim the story of Jesus. Fill my life with the optimistic hope of Jesus' glorious and victorious return so that I might share it with passion and others will know of your grace. In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
