For I am not ashamed of this Good News about Christ. It is the power of God at work, saving everyone who believes–the Jew first and also the Gentile. —Romans 1:16
May God be merciful and bless us. May his face smile with favor on us. ay your ways be known throughout the earth, your saving power among people everywhere. May the nations praise you, O God. Yes, may all the nations praise you. Let the whole world sing for joy, because you govern the nations with justice and guide the people of the whole world. May the nations praise you, O God. Yes, may all the nations praise you. Then the earth will yield its harvests, and God, our God, will richly bless us. Yes, God will bless us, and people all over the world will fear him. —Psalm 67
How will the nations praise our Lord God Almighty? How will they get to know who He is? It is true that they can know that He exists according to Psalm 19:1-4 —“The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge. They have no speech, they use no words; no sound is heard from them. Yet their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sJNnPbKu6tw
But to know Him in relationship we are told that “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” People need to hear the “good news” about Jesus, but they will not unless you and I bring it to them! The gospel is the power of God that saves all who believe. May we get the gospel to someone or many today! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DnL8L7LJC9I
Dear Father, may I proclaim the gospel of my Lord Jesus today. Please help me to be sensitive to those You bring into contact with me. May I unashamedly declare the gospel to whosoever. May I do so in the Name of my Lord Jesus and in the power of the Holy Spirit. May it be so!
