Encouraging Words with Pastor Bruce & Suzi Elman
When you receive exciting news, what’s the first thing you do? You probably call someone who will share your joy? As in our verse today, the apostle Paul told others about salvation for a similar reason.
Paul got saved on the road to Damascus (Acts 22), and he then dedicated the rest of his life to spreading the good news of the gospel (cross of YESHUA paid our sin debt in full)! He gave his time, energy and ultimately his life committing to spread the good news! He knew some would accept the truth while others would reject it.
Paul himself couldn’t save people—he wasn’t responsible for their reaction. His task was simply to go and tell everyone about YESHUA. Because of his devotion to the LORD, he felt compelled to offer this glorious hope to a world that desperately needed forgiveness!
For I am not ashamed of this Good News about MESSIAH. It is the power of God at work, saving everyone who believes—the Jews first and also the NON Jew.
Do you feel the same indebtedness that Paul felt? Pray that GOD would give you courage and wisdom to share the gospel with others in your sphere of influence!
Love & Blessings,
