DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
Preach The Gospel At All Times
2 Tim. 4:1-5
Having known that the gospel is the means through which God intends to save sinners, the attitude of Christians should be to preach the gospel. Paul encouraged Timothy in the passage that he should preach the word, be ready in season and out of season (v. 2). The Message version of the Bible of verse 2 says “so proclaim the message with intensity, keep on your watch”. This suggests that preaching the gospel is not what we need to handle with lackadaisical attitude, or turn it to an assignment to be done only when it is convenient. It is what we should make time out for, plan for, give money to, and do it at all times.
Point of Emphasis: Use all available opportunities to preach the gospel.
Prayer Point: Lord, always remind me to preach the gospel on daily basis.
