Christ’s Gospel preached!
Scripture reading for July 3rd: Job 30-33, Romans 15
Key Scriptures: Romans 15:18-20 “For I will not venture to speak of anything except what Christ has accomplished through me to bring the Gentiles to obedience–by word and deed, by the power of signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God–so that from Jerusalem and all the way around to Illyricum I have fulfilled the ministry of the Gospel of Christ; and thus I make it my ambition to preach the Gospel, not where Christ has already been named lest I build on someone else’s foundation.
Paul’s earnest desire was to reap a harvest of souls through preaching the Gospel of Christ. He trusted God to confirm His Word by signs and wonders and preached in the power of the Holy Spirit. He desired to go where the Gospel had not yet been preached so that all might have opportunity to hear.
Job 31:37 “I would give Him an account of all my steps; like a prince I would approach Him.”
Prayer: Lord, knowing that all Your children must give an account, help me to use my time and talents for Your glory. Let me fully preach the Gospel. Amen.
