Today’s devotion is based on the words of Paul in Romans 10:17, “Faith comes from hearing the message.”
How are we going to hear about Jesus? How are our children (and grandchildren) going to hear? How is our community going to hear? We need to be involved in practical ways to make sure that Bibles are available and are used. We need to be encouraging and supporting our pastors and the structures needed to train and equip them. We need to be using what the good Lord has blessed us with to support our local congregation and ministries that spread the good news about Jesus in both word and deed.
Please pray with me the prayer for today: Heavenly Father, gracious God, creator and sustainer of all things, seen and unseen, too often I take for granted so much that you give me. Grant me your wisdom so that I will use my money, my time, and all that I have in ways that help people to hear the good news about your dear Son. Please help me to better hear the words of your Holy Spirit so that I desire to learn more and to put into practice what I learn. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
