Enjoying the Journey

In the Old Testament the holy day was Saturday, the Sabbath. New Testament believers gather to celebrate the risen Christ on Sunday, the first day of the week. I am writing these words on a Monday. This article will publish on a Wednesday. You may be reading it on another day. The truth is…it doesn’t matter what day it is.

God is the same every day. The Apostle Paul wrote to a group of people who were divided over the significance of certain days, “One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind” (Romans 14:5).

Every day is a holy day for those who live in the Spirit. Every day is a day the Lord has made and graciously given to us. Every day is a day that God desires to work in us and through us.

Every day is a gospel day.

The gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ is good news any day – not just on Sunday! Will you make today a gospel day in your life?

If you have never trusted Christ as your Savior, make today your personal gospel day. “For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation” (2 Corinthians 6:2). Don’t wait for another day. Call on the Lord Jesus now in faith! It will be the greatest day of your life.

Those who have believed the gospel should now be excited to share it with others. If it’s really good news then we should be happy to pass it on! We must not wait for an evangelistic crusade or special day set aside by our church for witnessing…

Every day is a gospel day.

Here are a few suggestions to make this day a fruitful day for the gospel:

  1. Ask the Lord every morning to make gospel appointments for you throughout the day. Remember that divine appointments may come in unexpected places in unusual ways. They may rearrange your schedule. Living expectantly. Stay alert for those God has for you to speak to along your journey. Jesus said to His disciples, “As ye go, preach…” (Matthew 10:7)
  2. Arm yourself with gospel literature. Carrying gospel tracts with you will serve as a reminder to share Christ with others. They will also help you to be ready when an opportunity, no matter how brief, presents itself.
  3. Attempt to have a gospel conversation as early in the day as possible. The earlier in the day you begin talking about the Lord the easier it will be to speak about Him all through the day.

D.L. Moody made a commitment to give the gospel to someone every day. On some occasions he said he had to get out of bed at night and go back out because he had failed to speak to someone about the Lord. I wonder what would happen if all of us worked to give the gospel to some soul every day.

Every day is a gospel day.

  1. […] people tend to think about spiritual things more during Thanksgiving and Christmas. For believers every day is a gospel day, but some days provide special open doors to unbelievers. We must not miss these […]
