Living Sent

"And how are they to preach unless they are sent?" Romans 10:15

For the world to hear the good news of the Gospel, someone must be where the people are, or go to where they are.

Think about it. God has strategically placed every Jesus follower exactly where He wants them to live, work and play. No Christian lives where they live, works where they work, or plays where they play coincidentally. God purposefully placed you where you are for His purpose, so that His Gospel would be known. In other words, He sent you.

God says we have both an opportunity and a responsibility to get the Gospel to every area of the globe. How are we to be proclaimers, after all, unless we are sent? And we are being sent because God purposed to do so.

Be honest with God: are you willing to be sent wherever He wants you? Tell him why or why not, and then submit yourself to Him. Where has God sent you?

Proclaiming Your Story to Others

"And how are they to hear without someone preaching?" Romans 10:14

The word "preaching" can also be translated "proclaiming." The world doesn't need the professional clergyman to preach the Gospel in order to hear it --it needs a proclaimer!

A proclaimer is anyone who has the message. In Christianity, the one who proclaims is the one who has been saved by the Gospel, and is able to dispense it readily, boldly and openly to those in need of it. In other words, you are a proclaimer!

We must never forget that hearing the Gospel is dependent on someone speaking it. Jesus proclaimed, "And you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all of Judea and Samaria and to the end of the earth" (Acts 1:8). Ask God to send you wherever He wants you to go, and submit to that today.

What hinders you from sharing your story of salvation with others?
