Episode 140

TODAY’S READING:

15 He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.

Mark 16:15

 

It’s Friday!! Which means the weekend is here. I know it’s going to be a great weekend. I hope you have something fun planned; if not, then I hope you take some much-needed time off. I love to find time every weekend to slow down and take the sabbath. If that’s a whole day or just a few hours. Our bodies weren’t created to run 24/7, which is why it’s important we surrender some time to Him.

 

Now today is our Advent prayer day 10! We’ve been looking to scripture to prepare ourselves for the birth of Christ. This verse is a command given by Jesus, and it says, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.”

 

Emphasis on ALL

 

Meaning every person you come into contact today, tomorrow, and on Sunday, may you look at them, speak to them, help them, as if it was Jesus himself speaking. We are to preach the gospel, and that means we are to live the gospel. Yesterday we talked about how good God is and how his sacrifice frees us from our bondage. The world deserves to live in that same freedom.

 

So I hope you walk around like the light of the world. I hope you walk about with joy. I hope when people ask you, (people will ask you) why are you so happy? How can you have a smile on your face look around you? With everything going on in your life right now, how do you have faith and strength? I hope you say because I met a man, and his name is Jesus.

 

I don’t know if you know this, but He has given you the authority to declare the goodness of God. He has given you the authority to love on others. He has given you the authority to declare miracles; He has given you the authority to change the world. So walk in that authority.

 

Your attitude and actions, your words, and your demeanor can do so much more for the Gospel than calling people out for their shortcomings. I hope we are a generation of Christians known for loving the world, not condemn it. Then we will truly do the work that Jesus called us to do.

 

PRAYER

Jesus, today and every day, we praise you. We ask that every day you remind us to walk and talk like you. Help us extend grace, help us love on others. Help us walk in faith and not in fear so that when people ask where we get our hope from, we can answer; our hope is in Him. We can’t thank you enough for the love that you show us every single day. We are honored to walk in your presence. We love you, and it is in your holy name that we pray, AMEN!

Hi, I'm Ali.
I want to encourage you on your faith journey!

I'm the coffee obsessed baker from Miami, FL who got too busy to find time to read scripture everyday. I knew my life was better with Jesus and I knew I wasn't the only one struggling with finding alone time with God every morning, so I put my dreams of opening a bakery aside and set out to produce a five minute daily devotional. What first started as an email chain, has now flourished into a beautiful community and I am so happy you are here!

MY TESTIMONY

We are a faith based community in pursuit of daily prayer. All it takes is five minutes - we know you're busy but He loves you still.
