Proclaiming Brings the End

"This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come." - Matthew 24:14

Every tribe and every tongue will be represented around the throne worshipping God someday. Let that sink in. Ultimately the Gospel will be preached everywhere and as a result the end of time, as we know it, will come. That means that Jesus will return and gather His people to live in eternity forever. It also means that many will be left behind. For the Christian, this is something to look forward to. For those we love who are not Christians, things won't be good. Have you ever shared the love of Jesus in the Gospel with another person? Most Christians haven't. People cannot receive the Gospel without first hearing the Gospel. Tell someone about Jesus today: your spouse, your child, a co-worker or your friend.

Who needs to hear about Jesus in your life today?

Suffering Servant

"But the Lord was pleased to crush Him, putting Him to grief; If He would render Himself as a guilt offering, He will see His offspring, He will prolong His days, And the good pleasure of the Lord will prosper in His hand. As a result of the anguish of His soul, He will see it and be satisfied; By His knowledge the Righteous One, My Servant, will justify the many, As He will bear their iniquities." Isaiah 53:10-11

Before a child is born, their parents eagerly wait for the big day their little one enters the world. Similarly, the Old Testament saints were awaiting by faith the day that the Messiah would come. The prophet Isaiah, led by the Spirit of God (2 Peter 1:20-21), wrote about this One who was to come. The Lord called this Man, "My Servant". Does this name not absolutely typify what Christ came to do on our behalf? Though we are undeserving, by His grace, Christ came to serve us. By His death, burial, and resurrection, He gave us the ability to be forgiven of our sin and set free to live in a daily relationship with Him. How then can we not serve other people when we ourselves have been so served?

How does today's Scripture encourage you to serve other people?
