What’s My Excuse? 

DECEMBER 4 & 5, 2021

KEY FROM GOD’S WORD:

Philemon 10 I beseech thee for my son Onesimus, whom I have begotten in my bonds:

THOUGHT ON GOD’S WORD:

    How often have we thought, “I cannot witness for Christ now because __________” (You fill in the blank. I know I have, with many excuses). It seems there is always a reason not to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

    However, does it ever work the other way. You are just sitting around and think, “I sure wish there was someone around to tell about Jesus right about now.” If you ever thought this and meant it, probably someone showed up. God intends for us always to be willing, ready, and able to share the good news of our salvation.

    Paul led a runaway slave by the name of Onesimus to the Lord while in jail. Paul could have said I am too preoccupied trying to think of how to get out of jail to think about someone else right now. Sadly, this is what many of us do all too often. What could happen if we all decided that in the year to come, we would be more like Paul whenever possible? In our worst times let’s think of others. We might be surprised, it might make what we thought was our worst time, not so bad after all.

CARRYING THAT THOUGHT THROUGH THE DAY:

    As you go through your day today, start to think, whom can I share Christ with, and how will I do it. Then, JUST DO IT! It will surprise them and you. It will also make your day a lot more exciting.

WHAT TO DO ON SUNDAY:

There will not be a Daily Devotion sent out on Sundays. Instead, we encourage you to attend your church and listen intently to what God has prepared in the heart of your Pastor. Write down all the scriptures he uses in that message, then when you get home re-read those passages for today’s reading. God has given to your Pastor exactly what He desires for you on that day.
