Thoughts on Today's Verse...

What can we do to help spread the good news of Jesus and help increase the number of those being saved each day? Actually, there are many things we can do. Here are a few:
  • Put in a good word for Jesus in our daily routines.
  • Share our faith with a friend.
  • Go on a mission trip that focuses on sharing the good news.
  • Send financial support to cross-cultural faith workers (missionaries).
  • And there many others — see Missions Resource Network for additional ideas.
And please don't forget; one of the most powerful and effective things you can do is pray! Pray for missionaries, evangelists, church planters, and those who minister to share the good news about Jesus. Pray for those who share God's grace through web-based, radio, television, and print ministries. Pray for the message of God's love for all people, demonstrated in Jesus, to spread rapidly, and pray for it to grow in power, influence, and new disciples.

My Prayer...

Loving Shepherd, I know you agonize over those who are lost. I pray that you will empower missionaries worldwide to speak the truth of the Gospel with boldness. I pray that you touch the hearts of those who hear so they will experience your salvation. Use me in whatever way you choose to be a part of spreading your salvation. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.
