Scripture reading for June 27th: Romans 10
Key Scriptures for over-comers: Romans 10:14-17 “How, then, can they call on the One they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” But not all the Israelites accepted the good news. For Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed our message?” Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the Word of Christ.”
Many who name the Name of Christ and claim they follow Jesus never make any effort to communicate the Gospel message to their family or friends. They say they believe in God’s world-wide program and know He wants all men to be saved, but won’t speak to others about Christ! How can this be? How can people hear without someone to preach to them? How can a preacher go unless he recognizes that he is called by God to preach the good news? How will our family and friends hear of the message of Christ Jesus and come to faith unless believers preach to them?
Observations for over-comers: Over-comers must embrace the great commandment to love God and others and the great commission to go into the world and preach the good news, making disciples of all men. This is our call and our act of love for God and others! “Now what I am commanding you today is not too difficult for you or beyond your reach. It is not up in heaven, so that you have to ask, “Who will ascend into heaven to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?” . . .No, the Word is very near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart so you may obey it.” (Deuteronomy 30:11-12, 14) (Romans 10:6-8)
