Ephesians 3:7 NLT - "By God's grace and mighty power, I have been given the privilege of serving Him by spreading this Good News."
Do you witness for Christ? Do you make it a serious prayer request to be given the opportunity to talk with other people about the Lord? Is it one of your greatest desires to be able to share the Gospel, the Good News, with someone else? I'm not at all wanting to introduce a "guilt trip" on anyone, but I'm hoping to touch a cord in your heart about finding it a "privilege of serving Him by spreading this Good News."
Paul was so grateful that God poured out His grace on Paul and gave Paul His mighty power to bring the Good News to those who needed to hear. Too many times I believe Christians "stumble" over the idea that they have to be as active as Paul was in preaching and traveling, and they have to reach 1,000's of people every year! That is not what God intended for most believers. God wants us to reach out at least to those closest to us, to touch the lives of our family, our friends, our coworkers or fellow students or the numerous people we meet every week including the gas station attendant, the store clerk, the mail carrier, etc. If this Gospel brought salvation to us shouldn't we want to share this with someone?
This is not the normal commentary I try to write. It's more of a practical application of this testimony of Paul where he shares his delight to bring to others the hope found in the redemptive message of Jesus Christ. I pray your heart would be stirred to want to see your own life involved in this ministry with at least one person in your acquaintance.
