If you are reading this devotion right now that means you are alive and hopefully, well. It means that God has given you another chance to get it right. You are not alive so that you can obtain a lot of money, live in the nicest house, drive the most luxurious vehicle, or wear the most stylish attire. You are alive because the Lord wants the whole world to hear about Jesus. This is why God kept Paul alive. Paul was rescued from the the mouth of lions (2 Tim 4:17). Why? Because God wanted him to proclaim Jesus to the world! We may not be like Paul but we are all a part of the same mission. Parent. Student. Housewife. Church leader. Grandparent. Housekeeper. Construction worker. Pastor. It doesn’t matter what position you have – if you are alive today, God wants to use you. The world needs to hear about Jesus. Tell what He has done in your life. Be the hands and feet of Jesus. Speak words of kindness. Somebody, somewhere is watching and listening. “But the Lord stood by me and strengthened me, so that threw me the message might be fully proclaimed and all the Gentiles might hear it. So I was rescued from the Lions mouth”. (2 Tim 4:17).
