Introduction.

Paul was eager to proclaim the gospel to all people but in this passage specifically to the Romans. He has experienced the power of the gospel in his own transformation, going from a persecutor of the church to an apostle, as well as amongst the Jews and the gentiles. Paul never labored in his own power or wisdom but rather in the power of God and the power of the gospel. Learning to trust in this power made available to us is essential for us to become effective in evangelism.

TEXT:  Romans 1:16

SPEAKER; Tony Svendsen, Outreach Pastor

INTRODUCTION.

Paul was eager to proclaim the gospel to all people but in this passage specifically to the Romans. He has experienced the power of the gospel in his own transformation, going from a persecutor of the church to an apostle, as well as amongst the Jews and the gentiles. Paul never labored in his own power or wisdom but rather in the power of God and the power of the gospel. Learning to trust in this power made available to us is essential for us to become effective in evangelism.

DISCUSSION

In what ways could you more fully trust in Gods power in bringing the gospel to those in your area of influence?

EXAMINATION.

Paul is not ashamed of the Gospel because it is the power of God that brings about transformation, or new life (1 Cor. 5:17).

Read these passages and explain what God’s roll is in the work of evangelism: Col. 4:3, Rom. 1:16, 1 Cor. 2:1-5, Matt. 10:19-20, Acts 16:14, John 6:44, 1 Cor. 3:6-7

Are we all called to do the work of evangelism? Read 2 Cor. 5:17-21

Who are we in Christ?

What roles has God given us as New Creations in this passage?
