In the previous verses of Romans Chapter 10, Paul is talking about the gift of salvation for all. Christianity was a new religion at this time, even though it was birthed in Jewish tradition and God’s promise to Abraham to make him the “father of many nations”.
Living in America, it can be easy to think everyone here knows who Jesus is. Who am I to push my religion on others? That mindset is a problem. Culture has tried to silence the voice of the church but God has promised the gates of hell will not prevail.
Knowing about Jesus and knowing Him are two very different things. Sharing our faith isn’t about pushing religion on anyone, it’s about giving hope to those who have never experienced the goodness of God’s grace. It’s about the power of redemption.
Every believer is an ambassador for Christ. When I walk out my front door, I enter the mission field. When I log on to social media, I enter the mission field.
How do my words and actions reflect my faith? Do they create a hunger to know God in those I impact? Does my walk line up with my talk? Are the shoes on my feet shod with the “preparation of the gospel of peace”? (Ephesians 6:15)
Prayer: Lord, give me beautiful feet, ready and willing to share the good news of the gospel with anyone who needs it.
Give me courage and remind me, even if someone rejects my words, I am planting seeds of faith in their hearts.
Help me to overcome the fear of rejection. Let my love for Yyou, and others be a driving force in my willingness to share my faith, regardless of the cost or outcome. amen
