Passing on the Good News
Today’s devotion is based on Romans 10:15-17, ‘How can the message be proclaimed if the messengers are not sent out? As the scripture says, ‘How wonderful is the coming of messengers who bring good news!’ But not all have accepted the Good News. Isaiah himself said, ‘Lord, who believed our message?’ So then, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message comes through preaching Christ.”
The good news of Jesus Christ came to you by a long line of people: pastors, teachers, family, friends, a Bible someone printed, maybe even with the help of modern technology. The point is that God doesn’t just zap the truth into people’s minds. He sends his good news via various messengers. How can others learn about Christ? They need to hear. They need to be told. You are God’s messenger, the bearer of good news!
Please pray with me the prayer for today. Lord God, use me to share the wonderful, good news of Jesus Christ’s life, death, and resurrection with those who do not know of God’s love toward them. I pray this through Jesus’ blessed name. Amen.
