Good morning all,
The word of the day is “acquire.” Back in the day there were a ton of peeps that would try to make a buck off anything, including the word of God. This did not make Paul too happy. He knew that Xtians needed to be sincere in their motives for sharing the Gospel with others. Paul’s message was pure; and he expected the same from his fellow believers…
“For we are not, as so many, peddling the word of God; but as of sincerity, but as from God, we speak in the sight of God in Christ.”
~2 Cor. 2:17
The purpose of God’s word is to help others prosper. If we use it to our advantage then we are missing the point. My question is: do others see you as someone who handles the word of God correctly? You would be surprised at what peeps expect from you concerning your knowledge of the Gospel. My prayer is that you are ready to share God’s goodness in all sincerity so that you might plant seeds in the hearts of those who need to acquire it. You are given power in the name of our Lord, JC… do what you can to prosper the Kingdom.
Praying for you,
