SIGN-UP TO RECEIVE OUR DEVOTIONALS EACH DAY (BELOW)
SCRIPTURE: “But the Lord said to him, ‘Go, for he is a chosen vessel of Mine to bear My name before Gentiles, kings, and the children of Israel.’” Ac 9:15
SEE IT: Mission Heavy
JIMISM: 6377. Nothing I do for good can equal what was done for me by someone else. JG
LIVE IT: Who knows how many people have come to know the Lord via a Billy Graham crusade. I never met Billy, but did know Herb Hodges, a simple man who deemed himself a disciple-maker. Billy worked on the principle of addition but Herb on multiplication.
Both Billy and Herb are gone, as are their evangelistic crusades and table-top sessons. But people are still preaching the gospel via disciple-makers. All the production, however, is trumped by one man, the Apostle Paul whose special calling set it all in motion.
PRAY IT: Thank You, Jesus, that your Name goes before me, surrounds me and upholds me.
FIND IT: Calling; Special; Disciples
APPLY IT: Focus everything I do on Jesus’ name.
