Weird: Mission Devotional (Day 4 of 5)

Weird: Mission – Day 4 of 5

The New Testament makes one thing abundantly clear; every follower of Jesus is to share the Gospel message with others. But it makes something else clear, too. Every follower of Jesus is to continually share the Gospel message with themselves on a regular basis, too.

For example, Paul wrote to Christians in Rome that he was looking forward to preaching the Gospel to them (Romans 1:15). They already had faith in Jesus, but Paul knew they needed to continually hear the Gospel message themselves. In fact, many of Paul’s letters focus on specific Gospel truths. Truths he knew God’s people needed to hear on a daily basis.

Read: Ephesians 2

Questions to consider:

  • If somebody asked you to define the Gospel, what would you say?
  • What are at least five truths of the Gospel you think you need to hear on a daily basis?
  • What will you do in order to remind yourself of these truths on a daily basis?

Prayer:

Father, I recognize that I need Your Gospel to permeate every aspect of my being. I know that I sometimes feel guilt and shame, and I forget that Jesus has done everything that needed to be done to make me righteous (Romans 5:19). I also recognize that I sometimes feel unholy, but I know that You have done everything that needed to be done to make me holy (Hebrews 10:10). So, today, I simply pray that You will continue to remind me of Your Gospel truths, so that I may continually live freely in them. I praise You, today, for everything You have done! Amen.
