Keep on Speaking

Verse of the Day:  Acts 18:9  

One night the Lord spoke to Paul, “Do not be afraid, keep on speaking, do not be silent.  

The Apostle Paul was in Corinth where his safety may have been at risk for sharing the Good News. It would have been so much easier to just stay quiet but the Lord directed him to not be afraid, to keep speaking and to not be silent and because Paul obeyed the Lord, the church in Corinth flourished. We’re living in a society where everyone wants to give their opinion on anything and everything. As believers in Christ we must be courageous and willing to stand up for what we believe in, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.  Don’t be afraid to share Jesus with the world. The world needs to know that Jesus came to save them. Don’t worry if you don’t know the right words to say, just tell them what God has done for you.

Heavenly Father, I’m so grateful for everything you’ve done for me. You gave me hope when I had none and you saved me when I was lost. Thank you for never giving up on me and for always loving me. Help me to speak about your saving grace and the Good News of Jesus Christ.  Amen

Do You Hear What I Hear?

Mark 16:15

Verse of the Day:  Mark 16:15          

he said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.”

The Christmas carol “Do You Hear What I Hear?” describes how the news of the birth of Jesus might have swept across the land. From the lamb to the shepherd boy all the way to the king and everyone in between the story of the birth of the Savior, the light of the world, was being shared.  Today, we also have the same commission and more. We’re to share not only the news of the birth of Jesus Christ but also the good news of His teachings, His death, His resurrection and His second coming. Hallelujah!

To Seek and to Save

Luke 19 10.jpg

Verse of the Day:  Luke 19:10

For the Son of Man came to seek and to save that which was lost.

Because of the actions of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden sin entered the world and separated us from God. But God loved us so much He made a way for us to be saved. He sent His only Son, Jesus, to this world to seek and to save the lost, to offer us the free gift of salvation. He rescued us from a life of sin, from the guilt of sin and from the power of sin when He paid the ultimate price and gave His life for our sin on Calvary so our relationship with God could be restored. So then, what shall we do to receive this gift? Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. (Acts 2:28) As followers of Christ, we need to share this Good News with the world while there is still time.

God has given each of us different gifts to be used for His purpose.  We should be content with what we’ve been given and use these gifts to the best of our ability.
