DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
Have Good Report In Christ
What do you think could have endeared Paul to write to the Roman believers whom he had not met or seen before? It is the good report about their faith in Christ. Believers in Rome had become a phenomenon because people were spreading their good report to everywhere they went and that was how Paul heard about them and was willing to see them. This should be of concern to you as a believer. What report can your parents, children, neighbours, friends, co-workers, fellow brethren, etc, give about your faith in Christ? Will that report bring commendation or condemnation to you? Will it invite others to Christ or send them away from Christ?
Point of Emphasis: Believers who are of good report are assets unto the church and God’s kingdom.
Prayer Point: Lord, help me to have a good report in You through my conduct.
