DAILY BIBLE READING
Preserved To Save Others
We all know the story of Joseph. Because of the evil done to him by his brothers, and fearing that their father was no more, Joseph might decide to repay them in their own coins, they came to beg that he should forgive them. Joseph interpreted the whole scenario as God’s scheme for him to be able to save many people alive (verse 20). Have you ever thought that God has preserved your life so that you may bring others to Him in salvation? Do you know that all the good things God is decorating your life with, are to serve as impetus for you to do the task of soul-winning? You have not been taken to heaven so that you may join others in bringing people to Christ. Therefore, do the work for which your life has been preserved.
Point of Emphasis: God is good to you to save many people through Christ.
Prayer Point: Help me to justify my existence by preaching the gospel to sinners.
