Church Work

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: Colossians 1:24-29 (NLT)

Paul writes of his responsibility to serve the body of Christ by teaching the "entire message" of Jesus (vs. 25). While most of us aren't in paid, full-time ministry as a preacher, teacher, or minister, as followers of Christ ("the church"), each of us still has a responsibility to proclaim the message of God's love through Christ to anyone and everyone. As such, verse 28 applies to us just as it did to Paul and the disciples.

"So we tell others about Christ, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all the wisdom God has given us. We want to present them to God, perfect in their relationship to Christ" (NLT).

Do you consider yourself a "church worker"? When's the last time you talked with someone outside of your immediate family about Jesus and how much God loves them? Will you join me in being intentional about looking for people to talk to about Jesus this week and going forward? Tami

Tami, yes, I pray that God will cause an intentional timing with a particular person(s) who needs to hear the good news of the Gospel.
This should not be so hard for most of us in the free world ( so far) to share our testimony, just like Paul, he was suffering for Christ in prison.

A precious saint ( a former Muslim) has been witnessing to her entire family and her husband, son and a dying uncle accepted Christ before he died. Is she being persecuted verbally, yes. Even her young son is harassed at school,and she applied for a job,but was turned down because she was not a Muslim.

We as Christian should be zealous like this young mother while we have freedom to do so without being persecution for doing so.
