Podcast #212: “I’m Not Ashamed” by Abigail Duhon

Examining the Power of the Gospel in Romans 1

I discovered the difference between being “shamed” and being “ashamed” through my study this week. Abigail Duhon’s song, “I’m Not Ashamed,” leads us to Romans 1 and Paul’s famous declaration,  “I am not ashamed of the gospel.”

Exploring and meditating on this Scripture will really change the way you think…if you let it.

On this episode I discuss:

  • Taking a B.I.T.E. out of Scripture – this week’s Bible Interaction Tool Exercises include:
    • Meditating on God’s Word
    • Read in context
    • Slow down
    • Write down your observations
    • Complete a word study
  • Pondering what leads to feelings of being ashamed
  • Considering details of the gospel learned from Romans 1:1-7
  • To whom Paul is obligated as revealed in Romans 1:8-15
  • The response of others to the gospel – 1 Corinthians 1:22-23
  • How Jesus responded to shame – Hebrews 12:1-3
  • How we will endure shame, considering it’s insignificant compared to the power of salvation
  • The assignment to keep reading in Romans 1 to see Paul’s exposition of sin
  • How a discussion of common sins may make us feel uncomfortable
  • How we should be more ashamed of sin than of the gospel
