Thursday, August 1

share with all

Hard to believe, but here it is....August!

The Bible verse for this month is from Romans 10:12 - "The same Lord is Lord of all and is generous to all who call on Him." 

It's a lonely verse that really does need the next verse to give it more meaning - "For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved." (Romans 10:13)

Our Creator God did create all people, yet not all people know Him.  In fact, they may not even know to call upon Him and without calling on His Name they won't be saved. Guess we need a few more verses to help us - "But how are they to call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching?  And how are they to preach unless they are sent?  As it is written, 'How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!'" (Romans 10:14-15)

People can have an opportunity to call out to the Lord when those who know the Lord share about Him.  That sharing isn't necessarily only from the pulpit of a church or on a street corner, but could perhaps be a simple conversation on a park bench with another mother as you talk about your own testimony of who the Lord is in your own life.  A simple conversation that reveals the hope, forgiveness, and abundant love that is generously found in Jesus Christ.  

Sound like a good challenge for the month of August?
