“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith, as it is written, “The righteous shall live by faith.” – Romans 1:16-17
I couldn’t have said it better. Paul experienced a lot of different things while being a witness for Christ. He’s been imprisoned, beaten, flogged, and shipwrecked. He also started a lot of churches around the world and was faithful to God and Christ after he came to the truth.
I can only hope and pray we all have the same faith and level of endurance he had then. Let us try to imitate his faith!
