— Acts 28:31
So often, we give excuses why we can’t do evangelism. Throughout his life, Paul showed us how lame our excuses are! He was passionately determined to fulfill God’s mission for him and wouldn’t let anything deter him (Acts 20:24). Luke closes the book of Acts with Paul under house arrest, needing to support himself and depend upon friends. Despite these difficulties, Paul still managed to get the Gospel proclaimed to the lost, mentor others who would follow in his steps, and live passionately for Jesus!
Loving and Almighty God, forgive my excuses and my fear. Please make me bold to share your saving truth in the Gospel. May all who know me also learn more about Jesus through me! In his precious name, I pray. Amen.
