Gung-Ho For The Gospel

November 12, 2017 Speaker: Ken Ramey Series: Romans

Topic: Gospel Mission Passage: Romans 1:8–1:15


We use the word “gung-ho” in our culture to describe someone who is extremely excited, eager, or enthusiastic about doing something. However, the literal translation of this Mandarin expression is “work together.” Combining the Chinese and English meanings of the word “gung-ho” is a perfect description of Paul’s passion for the gospel and his purpose for writing Romans. Paul was extremely excited, eager, and enthusiastic about preaching the good news of salvation to everyone everywhere. But he knew he couldn’t bring the gospel to the ends of the earth all by himself; he needed other Christians and other churches who shared his zeal for the gospel to partner with him in this huge endeavor. In Romans 1:8-15, we see FOUR WAYS Paul sought to stir up the saints in Rome to be enthusiastic evangelists who were “gung-ho” for the gospel like he was.

1. He commended them (v. 8)

2. He interceded for them (vv. 9-10)

3. He expressed his desire to minister to them (vv. 11-13)

4. He stressed his obligation to them (vv. 14-15)

Thank God that He has given you the answer to man’s deepest need. Ask Him to grant you a greater zeal and eagerness to share the good news of salvation with everyone you meet. Pray that all those who attend our church will be enthusiastic evangelists who are “gung-ho” for the gospel.
