Good morning all,
The word of the day is “spot.” The Apostle Paul had a knack for spotting talent when he saw it. Even though Timothy was an unlikely candidate for taking on the role of Paul’s companion for ministry, the two ended up doing some awesome ministry together. Paul believed in the young guy and gave him a chance despite his background, which prolly was not impressive to a lot of peeps.
“Paul wanted to take him along on the journey, so he circumcised him because of the Jews who lived in that area, for they all knew that his father was a Greek. As they traveled from town to town, they delivered the decisions reached by the apostles and elders in Jerusalem for the people to obey.”
My question is: when have you been that unlikely companion for God’s work? Many of us would not have seen ourselves as instrumental in the Lord’s plan… but we are. Each of us has been chosen to play a part in moving the kingdom forward. My prayer is that you are ready for God’s direction; he sees your potential. Spend time with the peeps that encourage you in the faith; look to spot the same in others. Strengthen God’s church daily, increasing in love for those who need to hear the Gospel. Have a great day.
Praying for you,
