Paul’s message to the Jews in Rome as recorded in Acts 28:23-31 was that salvation was available to everyone and we should urgently spreading the Good News. Even though salvation is available to all, Paul explained that many would not accept God’s message.
Even so, as we journey through life we should do everything to spread the Good News by discovering what we do best and using this strength as a platform to share about God’s message. We should use what we do best to help meet the needs of people and spread the Good News so they many hear, see, and understand. Go all out with an urgency to use our God given strengths for the glory of God.
The church had expanded from Jerusalem, Antioch, Ephesus, and into Rome. In thirty years, it had grown from just a few churches into tens of thousands. Though Paul was under house arrest, the Gospel message could not be bound or chained.
Lord, we come to You in prayer today knowing that the Gospel message cannot be bound or chained. It is a powerful message to share and each individual person who accepts this message can do great things for You. Help us each to use our individual gifts to serve others and administer Your grace. Amen.
