16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
-Everyone has that favorite song that they’ll listen to alone, but are too embarrassed to play in front of others or maybe an article of clothing that you like but is too far out of fashion to chance wearing it in public. The true worship of God has never been in fashion; going on record as a God-honoring, blood-redeemed follower of Christ can open you up to all sorts of ridicule. But we don’t proclaim the gospel of Christ because it’s in vogue, we proclaim it because it is the only way for the human race to escape damnation and find fellowship with God. God Himself personally came to Earth to present the gospel and instead of worship He received crucifixion; it should come as no surprise that the world would hate us because it hated the Lord first. (John 15:18) What we should never lose sight of is that there is coming a day when God will reassert His position as the ruler of this world and the worship of God will very much be in fashion for the rest of eternity; until that day comes, it is needful for those of us who wait for the Lord’s coming to warn as many as possible so that they might be made ready for the Lord’s coming as well.
