DO YOU KNOW THE FULLNESS OF GOSPEL BLESSING?
As the apostle Paul concluded his epistle to the Romans, he expressed his great desire to come and visit with them. He didn’t know when he would be able to come to Rome. He hoped to one day carry the gospel to Spain and stop off at Rome along the way, so he asked for them to join him in praying for God to make such a visit possible.
He may not have known when he might visit, but he did “know” that whenever that day did come, he would “come in the fullness of the blessing of the gospel of Christ.” Paul knew what the Lord had put inside of him for Rome. For wherever Paul went, he came in the fullness of the blessing of the gospel of Christ. Paul wanted the Romans to share in the fullness of the blessing that he carried.
As we visit with others, are we like Paul, confident in the knowledge that we bring the fullness of the blessing of the gospel of Christ wherever we go? We may not know where or to whom God may send us tomorrow, but we can know whether we carry the fullness of His blessing wherever we go.
PRAYER: Dear Father, we want to always be a blessing to others through sharing Your gospel. We often forget that we carry the greatest blessing of all. Strengthen us by Your Spirit to know what we carry from You always. In Jesus’ name, amen.
