Weekly Devotional 2/22/17: Carrying Out the Father’s Business

“For I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation unto everyone that believeth.” (Romans 1:16).

We must be diligent to spread the Gospel of our Lord — the good news that He has paid the price for every human being on the earth and set every one of them free from sin and eternal destruction. We have two weapons to use in the battle against demonic forces that continue to blind people to that good news: the Word of God and prayer. Only two weapons — but they are more than enough if we will use them faithfully.

If they could get a look at Hell,
Then would they be convinced?
I doubt it.
The power of self-deception lies
In one’s belief he knows
All about it.

So what is there to do for those
Who tread destruction’s path
To fiery lake?
How do we wean from serpent’s milk
That draws them ever on
In devil’s wake?

Our weapons, mighty, are but two:
The Word and earnest prayer.
Please don’t wait.
For time is running faster now;
Be diligent before
It is too late.
