October 12, 2020 Rick Warren Devotional :- Your Phone Is a Tool for Reaching the Nations
“Through Christ, God made peace between us and himself, and God gave us the work of telling everyone about the peace we can have with him.”
2 Corinthians 5:18 (NCV)
“Through Christ, God made peace between us and himself, and God gave us the work of telling everyone about the peace we can have with him” (2 Corinthians 5:18 NCV).
There’s nothing wrong with using Instagram to share photos of your kids or the amazing meal you had at your favorite restaurant. But if you’re not using social media to tell people about the peace they can have with God, then you’re missing a huge opportunity to fulfill your purpose.
God has given us the most important work on the planet: telling others about salvation through Jesus Christ. When Jesus said to go and make disciples of every nation, he was talking to you! For 2,000 years, going to the whole world meant getting on a ship or, more recently, a plane to get to the ends of the earth.
Today you don’t have to leave your home to reach the other side of the globe. You can sit wearing your pajamas in your bedroom and say a good word about the Lord that will go to the entire globe. That is an amazing benefit and blessing no other Christians in history have ever had. And using this tool for taking the Gospel to the nations is a great responsibility.
The Bible says in 1 Chronicles 16:24, “Publish his glorious deeds among the nations. Tell everyone about the amazing things he does” (NLT).
You have the opportunity today to tell people from all over the world the amazing things he has done for you. It’s right at your fingertips.
