Not ashamed

J.D. Hatfield examines Paul's words in Rom. 1:16 and considers ways that preachers today may in fact be ashamed of the gospel:
It is when we don’t preach it – sugar coating the offense of the gospel – take off the hard edges and it won’t penetrate the heart. When we don’t believe it, we present the good news as self-improvement rather than self-denying. We change things or add a thing because we don’t believe what God did is enough for today. When we don’t live it – when we aren’t lights in the world, having the dimmer switch on.
Too true. I recommend J.D.'s whole article.
