31. I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ; for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth. ROM. 1:16.
Ashamed of Jesus! I may,
When I’ve no guilt to wash away,
No tears to wipe, no good to crave,
No fears to quell, no soul to save.
Till then-nor is my boasting vain-
Till then I boast a Savior slain;
And oh, may this my glory be,
That Christ is not ashamed of me.
Whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and his Father’s, and of the holy angels. LUKE 9:26.
