But my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus—the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God.Acts 20:24
Advancing the Gospel
Paul’s entire life was centered around advancing the gospel. He had been a man who persecuted the church and believers, but once God changed His life on the road to Damascus, he was forever changed. No longer would he be a man who prevented others from knowing the gospel; now he would be a man who furthered the kingdom of God. He truly felt that life was not worth living unless he was preaching the gospel and ushering others to Christ.
Is this how you feel about the world around you? Do you have a passion to see others come to know Christ in this way? You are surrounded by people everyday who do not know the saving grace of Jesus like you do. Maybe it is your neighbor down the street whose kids play with yours everyday. Maybe it is a coworker who needs to hear the gospel. Maybe it is a family member or a close friend. They are all around you. Pray and ask God to give you wisdom and the words you need to speak truth to their hearts.
A Prayer to Remember
Give me a passion and desire for the people around me who need to hear your truth. Help me understand the reality of what it means that they don’t know you. Give me the words and wisdom. May they know you the way I know you. Amen.
