Bible reading: 1 Corinthians 9.
Insight: “I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings.” (1Co 9:23)
Insight one: What is the purpose of a Christian’s life? Are you glorify yourself or glorify God? What you do today is good for the testimony of the gospel, or has obstructed the gospel? Do you make people to share in the blessings of the gospel, or do you cause people to despise the gospel? For the sake of the gospel, are you willing to put down your personal thoughts, preferences, routines, and opinions? The goal is to make people share the blessings of the gospel so they can be granted as children of God.
Insight two: What is the Christian’s responsibility of preaching the gospel? We have no responsibility to save everyone, or to make everyone believe in the Lord. Our responsibility is to preach the truth of the gospel because to move people’s hearts and prepare them to accept the gospel are God’s responsibility. Therefore, our responsibility is not to save people but to do everything we can to preach the gospel.
Prayer: God heavenly Father, thank You for Your great love of salvation, so I can be a partaker of Your gospel. Please give me a heart of being willing to share the blessings of the gospel with others, like apostle Paul said: “I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some”. May the Lord help me so that my life can be a blessing to others. I pray in the holy name of Jesus, Amen!
