Today’s devotion is based on the words of Jesus as recorded in “Matthew 19:8, “Freely you have received; freely give.”
Jesus instructed his twelve disciples before their mission trip, reminding them of the abundant love, forgiveness, mercy, and purpose they had received from God. This command goes beyond sharing the gospel; it extends to every gift they and we have received, including money, time, and various abilities. Recognizing God's blessings, we should respond gratefully by freely giving back for the advancement of the gospel.
Take a moment to reflect on God's generosity in your life. Everything you have, both spiritually and physically, is a result of His grace. Through Jesus, you have received the precious gift of salvation. Moved by God's abundant blessings, freely give to others.
Let us pray: Heavenly Father, forgive my selfishness, and inspire me to love and serve You by serving others selflessly. I am richly blessed and privileged to give through Jesus Christ, my Savior. Amen.
