Today's Verse: 1 Corinthians 9:22

Sunday, September 22, 2024

To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all men so that by all possible means I might save some.
— 1 Corinthians 9:22

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Christ left heaven and came to earth to save us. Paul sacrificed everything to share the Gospel with both Jews and Gentiles. What have we done... what have we left... what have we given up... what have we become... to share Jesus with those we love, know, or influence?

My Prayer...

Father of mercy, rich in steadfast love, please give me eyes to see those around me who need Jesus, the courage and the humility to share his grace, and the sense of timing to share Jesus with them when they are ready to know of his love. In Jesus' name. Amen.
