Ephesians 6:19 (KJV)
And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,
As Paul is closing his epistle to the Ephesians church, he asks to have the power to boldly proclaim the gospel. That he be able to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ.
We are instructed in the great commission Mathew 28: 18-20 to carry this message, just as Paul did, to all nations. In carrying this message we must begin where we are. If we as Christians cannot share Jesus in our own neighborhood, how can we expect to reach the world? We must begin at home and then continue in our town, our state, our country, and finally the world.
If we have donned the full armor of God and have prayed. We will have the strength and courage to carry out the great task God has given us. To be able to reach the entire world so every individual will hear the gospel.
Dear Lord: Give the strength and courage to complete my part of the great commission. Show me what I must do to further your work here on earth. Put me where I am most needed and once again let me see the miracle salvation is some sinner’s life.
In Jesus name I pray amen.
