May 31 Scripture Selection: Romans 10

Food for Thought: Rom. 10:13-17

For some reason, this scripture seems to get misinterpreted and cause some to feel “off the hook” when it comes to sharing their faith. They think to share their faith, they would have to be “a preacher” and be “sent” formally after graduating from seminary or the like. While preachers certainly should be prepared and bold in sharing the Gospel, they are not the only ones who are sent.

A “preacher” could be anyone who proclaims the Gospel. And it doesn’t have to be a person commissioned or sent by some presbytery, counsel, or some other church authority. In addition, the preacher doesn’t have to stand behind a pulpit before a crowd. We all qualify to take the Gospel if we are born again, and we all are sent by the Holy Spirit within us. If we know nothing more than what it takes to receive Christ as Savior, then that is more than enough to preach the Good News.

Everyone who is a bearer of Good News fulfills this scripture. It’s high time believers leave religious tradition aside and begin to see themselves as the ones with the beautiful feet who take the Gospel of peace and the glad tidings of good things to the ones in need.

    Then you need to have faith.

    • J Sue says:

      Yes, Me, faith is the beginning of it all. Without it, you cannot receive what God has for you. And faith comes from the Word of God. That is what builds it. Then, you can naturally share what you know by faith, not by obligation and not trying to conjure something up. By the way, I am very glad to hear from you. It’s been a while .

    You share your faith by your actions as much as by your words. Share it by living it and talk about it only when God tells you to talk about it.
