Edifier du Jour-Romans 1:14-16(NASB)
14: I am under obligation both to Greeks and to barbarians, both to the wise and to the foolish. 15: So, for my part, I am eager to preach the gospel to you also who are in Rome. 16: 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.
What would be the foolish barbarian of today? If we're to follow Paul's lead, we're to take the Gospel wherever God wants it to go. I'm not the great evangalist going into the darker parts of Winter Haven or Lake Wales, so this is the pot calling the kettle black, but we need to look at where God wants us to focus our Christian endevours. It may well be that my "mission field" is to shephard business students, but it might be something different as well. As we look at the multiple cultures around us (even Warner has a Rastafarian or two), remember verse 16; the Gospel is universal. This isn't just a white-guy's religion (Jesus was likely rather dark-skinned) or a Western one or an old-fashioned one. That should give us some confidence to spread the Gospel in our daily travails
