Romans 1:14-16
1. “I Am A Debtor”
I am a debtor both to Greeks and to barbarians, both to wise and to unwise.Romans 1:14

Paul was indebted because of what Christ had done for him.1 Timothy 1:12-17In turn, Paul did everything he could to save as many people as he could.1 Corinthians 9:16, 19-22We should feel the same indebtedness.Ephesians 2:1-10
2. “I Am Ready”
So, as much as is in me, I am ready to preach the gospel to you who are in Rome also.Romans 1:15
2. “I Am Ready”
Readiness requires preparation.1 Peter 3:15; 2 Timothy 2:15Readiness requires devotion.2 Corinthians 8:5, 12Readiness requires watchfulness.2 Timothy 4:2; Titus 3:1
3. “I Am Not Ashamed”
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
The Gospel is God’s Power To…
Turn sinners away from power of Satan and towards God’s forgiveness (Acts 26:18).Save man from the punishment of sin (Rom. 6:23).Restore man’s fellowship with God (2 Cor. 5:18-20).Cast down every thought, scheme, and false doctrine against God (2 Cor. 10:5).Rescue sinners from the power of darkness and deliver them to God’s kingdom (Col. 1:13).Pierce and judge man’s heart (Heb. 4:12).
3. “I Am Not Ashamed”
Paul was not ashamed to suffer for the gospel.2 Timothy 1:8, 12We must not be ashamed of Christ or His words as we live in this wicked world.Mark 8:38
- We Can Be Like Paul -
We can be motivated by a sense of indebtedness.We can prepare ourselves and be ready to do the Lord’s work.We can be unashamed of the Lord and the power of His word in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation.
