INSPIRING DAILY DEVOTIONAL ® … Preach the Word
Text(s) for today: 2 Tim. 4: 1-5
“…This book of the law (the Word of God) shall not depart out of thy mouth…” Josh. 1:8
You see, it’s God’s desire that the Word does not depart out of your mouth.
Is it not profound that the Bible does not say the Word should not depart ‘out of your heart’ but it says ‘ out of your mouth?’ That teaches that teaching and preaching the Word is at the heart of God. That’s was God’s instruction to His servant Joshua, and today, God is telling His servants same:
‘…shall not depart of thy mouth…’ means, ‘keep saying the Word. You should never stop saying it. Speak it wherever you go.’
Bible says in the city of Ephesus, so mightily grew the Word of God and prevailed. Acts 19:20 Praise the Lord!
Every one can share the gospel. Bible says when the early Christians were scattered, they went EVERY WHERE preaching the Word (Acts 8:1-4).
Be self-motivated to preach the Word. If you were preaching it at first and you stopped, shake yourself up and pick it up again.
Make use of every opportunity you have to make our Master known every where you go and with every strength you have, do it. Don’t let it be one of the things you do – make that your focus in this life.
If you’re a teacher, seize some time, as often as practical to talk about Jesus. If you’re an accountant, learn to consciously and cleverly chip in Jesus into conversations with your clients.
Let this mind be in you. You should begin from today!
Prayer & Confessions (pray out loudly)
LORD I thank you so much for today’s reminder to preach the Word. I release every strength I’ve to make Jesus known to all around me, in Jesus’ name. Amen. Halleluyah!
