Devotion by Darla Noble
For I am not ashamed of the Good News of Christ, because it is the power of God for salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first, and also for the Greek. For in it is revealed God’s righteousness from faith to faith. As it is written, “But the righteous shall live by faith.”
When you receive a superlative gift from someone, you don't hesitate to express your gratitude or tell others about your good fortune. Why? Because your joy and excitement overflow. You just can't keep it in.
That's the way we should feel about sharing the Greatest Gift ever—the Good News of Christ.
How wonderful to have eternal life with God through Jesus' death on the cross and His resurrection!
If, through your witness, a person knows and accepts Jesus as their Savior, the blessings they receive are so valuable, they cannot compare with anything else in the world. That person will be so grateful to you for eternity. It will be far better than giving them all the money in the world, or any fancy car, or house.
For this reason, Jesus' last words were to share the greatest gift—Go to everyone! Make them disciples and teach them everything I’ve commanded you (Matthew 28:19-20).
So, don't be ashamed or embarrassed to tell others about Jesus. Don't keep the gift of salvation to yourself: share it with everyone you meet.
I invite you to be the happiest person in the world by letting people know the Greatest Gift ever: Jesus, the beautiful and wonderful Savior I am so grateful for, now and for eternity.
Dear God, Thank You for rescuing me from sin. Please give me the courage and wisdom to share the Good News of Christ with others. In the name of Jesus I pray, Amen.
What things keep me from sharing the gospel? If I am ashamed of Jesus now, how can He be proud of me for eternity?
