“I became a servant of this gospel by the gift of God’s grace
given me through the working of his power.”
Ephesians 3:7 (NIV)
How are you doing at serving the gospel?
Me? I want to be like apostle Paul, serving and sharing the gospel with others. But my insecurities and fears get in the way.
I feel I don’t have enough knowledge of His word. I can’t easily quote scripture. It’s hard for me to quickly recall my personal experiences to share what God has done in my own heart.
Or if I’ve allowed Him to work in my heart.
It’s much easier to hide behind others who are more confident.
But hiding is not what we are called to do.
I need to stop hiding and start seeking.
I can’t serve and share the gospel on my own. I need to seek and find God’s power in me to overcome my insecurities and fears.
I love what Suzie Eller writes:
My partnership with God is a work in progress. Getting past my insecurities and fears does not come easy. But “He’s bigger”.
His power in me is bigger.
Imagine what His power can do if we allow Him to work in our hearts.
To overcome our insecurities and fears.
To mend our hearts.
I’m in. How about you?
Yes? Then join me for Proverbs 31 Online Bible Studies beginning June 22 to study Suzie Eller’s The Mended Heart. Let’s discover together what God’s power can do if we allow Him to work in our hearts.
Now it’s your turn: How are you doing at serving and sharing the gospel? I’d love to hear and be inspired today.
