LIVING TO PROCLAIM THE GOSPEL

 
"Through Him we have been favored with apostleship, that we may spread His name." —Romans 1:5
 

Paul, "set apart to proclaim the gospel of God" (Rm 1:1), wrote to the Romans to prepare them to be a home-base for future evangelism in Spain (Rm 15:24, 28). Paul was always thinking of reaching more people for Christ. He would use a courtroom as a forum for preaching the gospel (Acts 26:1ff). He even stopped to convert the jailer during a jailbreak (Acts 16:28ff). Paul repeatedly risked his life to preach the gospel (2 Cor 11:23). He was single-hearted; evangelism was the only thing on his mind. He would pay any price to win to Christ as many as possible (1 Cor 9:19).

We have six more weeks left in the Church year. In the last forty-six weeks, how many people have we tried to lead to the Lord? The fields are ripe for a great harvest (Jn 4:35), but the workers are still few (Mt 9:37). If we're not evangelizing, are we evangelized? Let's repent of not sharing the gospel and make the rest of this year the greatest evangelistic drive of our lives.

 
Prayer: Father, give me a new Pentecost that leads to a new evangelization.
Promise: "She came from the farthest corner of the world to listen to the wisdom of Solomon, but you have a greater than Solomon here." —Lk 11:31
Praise: George, a professional athlete, does not hide his faith in Jesus Christ and has been a great public witness for his faith.
