“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is God’s power for salvation to everyone who believes” (Romans 1:16).
“A lot of people puff up when they recite this verse like it’s some sort of Christian bragging right. They think this verse is a way to declare how strong you are, how tough you are, how brave you are. But that’s the opposite of what this verse means. Instead, it’s a manifesto for the broken. For the needy. For the helpless. For the ones who are stumbling more than they’re stepping. For the ones who are willing to admit that they aren’t brave enough, tough enough or strong enough.“ Read more about Lecrae Moore’s unwavering faith “From Rehab to Redemption” here http://www.lifeway.com/article/lecrae-unashamed-from-rehab-to-redemption-part-two
