Rising Joy, by Vicki Matheny
Remember Jesus Christ, raised from the dead, a descendant of David; such is my gospel, for which I suffer hardship to the point of imprisonment as a criminal, but God’s message is not imprisoned! So I endure all things for the sake of those chosen by God, that they too may obtain salvation in Christ Jesus and its eternal glory. 2 Timothy 2.8-10
What is your message? Is it the same message as Paul? If our message is anything other than the death of Jesus, his resurrection and ascension, we are sharing a different gospel. We are not respecting God’s word and his message.
Paul was willing to go to prison because of the gospel. However, that did not stop him from sharing the message with others. He shared with whoever he came into contact. How far are you willing to go to share the gospel?
