The scripture for today, August 4 (8/4), is Acts 8:4 as found in the New Testament of the Bible:
Sometimes your plans get scattered, your dreams shattered. You lose your home, your job, your chance at an education, your savings, your family.
Satan loves to discourage you. He’s good at it. But Romans 8:28 says God can make something good come out of all things, even the bad.
Do you use your circumstance in life as an excuse to not share the Good News of how to be saved from hell and go to heaven instead?
If you use the excuse you don’t have time, then lose your job, would you share the gospel then? If you use the excuse your upper-class neighbors are all agnostics, then lose your home, would you share the gospel with middle-class neighbors?
Your circumstance may change, but you would be the same person you were before. What is the likelihood you would be any different if your life was “scattered”? If your old excuses were no longer valid, would you then share the Good News?
The people in Jerusalem who feared martyrdom ran for their lives and lost everything. Their concern for the souls of others never wavered.
Today, consciously look around for someone to share the gospel with. Afraid your friends will reject you? Then go to a fast-food place or a park or a bus stop, find someone sitting alone, and tell a stranger. No matter where your dreams and ambitions scatter to, you can still “Seek and save the lost.”
