Daily Devotional (March-16-2023) Good News.

Scripture Reference: “For I am not ashamed of this Good News about Christ. It is the power of God at work, saving everyone who believes.” Romans 1:16 (NLT)

Paul was eager to preach the gospel in Rome so he wrote them a letter. But the fact was many were spreading false rumors about Christ and Christianity. So he wrote them telling them how there was nothing to be ashamed about the gospel. He assured them that it was real and was “the power of God at work saving everyone who believes.” We are in a similar situation today. Most people feel Christianity in not relevant to today’s lifestyle. Even though it was the church in centuries past that was responsible for helping the poor, sick and troubled, today much of that is given to the government and secular non-profits. Many judge Christianity by those who have had national attention as ministers or evangelists and have had moral failings. Others attack the church for those few that seem to profit financially from ministry. Shameful things have happened in the name of Christianity and sadly we have lost our moral authority.

How then do we share the message of God’s love in an environment where to many it seems Christianity has no relevancy and to others no moral value? We do it one relationship at a time. We can use our skills, resources, influence, networks and make a difference in people’s lives all the while giving testimony to what God has done for us. We can be “doers” helping others in the name of Christ. We can be “inviters” inviting people to come and hear about Christ. We can be “sharers” giving of our resources to others that are in need. We can be “encouragers” giving the reason that we are hopeful and how they too can have the same hope. Finally, we can be “lovers” of those around us, living out the love that God has for them. When we “live” out our Christianity and share our testimony with others, we too will not be ashamed.

Prayer - Father, help me be a witness to those around me. Help me share Your “Good News” in the way I live and speak. AMEN
