Week 33 Devo – FRIDAY
Saint Francis once said, “Preach the gospel at all times; when necessary, use words.” While that makes for a good bumper sticker, it is not fully supported by Scripture. Jesus came to earth and acted out His love to for us, but it didn’t end there. He spoke truth to those people; He recited God’s Word to those He healed, and they were forever changed after that. Not only are we supposed to be “Christ on display,” but we are supposed to speak life into others just as Jesus did.
One of our duties as Christians is to share our faith with those who do not know the Good News. Second Timothy tells us to “teach others” the incredible news of the Gospel, and people will be forever changed. The truth is, the Gospel came to you, headed toward somebody else. Aren’t you glad that someone loved you enough to not leave you in your hopelessness of sin and shame but told you the hope and eternal life we have in Jesus? We must multiply this Good News to the world, and doing this requires words.
It does not require a college degree, a job in a church, or some elaborate way with words. It requires you to share what God did in your life.
How well do you know your testimony? Could you share it with someone today?
