God Chose You

(Begin with 1-2 minutes of silence)

Romans 10:15 And how will anyone go and tell them without being sent? That is why the Scriptures say, “How beautiful are the feet of messengers who bring good news!”

Some followers of Jesus are passionate about the prospect of making disciples. So much so that they’re willing to jump into the deep end and go to the ends of the earth. 

We may read their stories and feel inspired by their courage to live in a third world nation among the poor and destitute to share the message of Jesus with others. 

But being inspired by what somebody else does may not lead to transformation within us. We may feel inspired by what somebody else is doing, but still be fearful to walk across the room we’re in and start up a conversation with a colleague. For reasons we may not fully understand, we may be fearful to share an encouraging story, or even to ask somebody if we can pray for them. 

But in the end, God has chosen you (and me) and make disciples. Despite a world population of 8 billion people, He had a desire, a plan, and a purpose for you. What a privilege to have opportunities to share His story with others! 


     ROMANS 10:15 (also read the commentary notes in your Study Bible of choice.)

QUESTION: You may not work full time for a local church, but you are in full time ministry. How may God be inviting you to reflect His love and grace upon somebody today? 

REAL LIFE PRACTICE: Are you overcommitting?Practice slowing down and living life at the pace of your soul by utilizing the One Minute Pause app at least twice daily. The app is free, and is available on iPhone and Android devices.

PRAYER: Heavenly Father, forgive me for the times when I have thought it should be somebody else’s role to make disciples. While there may be others who are more gifted in Evangelism, You have still chosen me to be part of Your grand story. May I not disregard this privilege. Instead, may I completely embrace it. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
