Nothing good comes cheaply!
The apostle Paul knew that well and he had a burning passion to see the greatest good happen.
That is, to see as many people as possible come to Christ. In fact, Paul surrenders his life to God’s cause and mission.
Paul surrendered his financial rights, his freedom and his personal preferences.
We all have concerns and responsibilities in life, and we all need to be faithful in those things, but please don’t let life’s responsibilities take precedence over our joint and personal responsibility to God and His mission. He has a mission for us and a ministry for everyone to participate in.
Let us all surrender our lives to God’s cause so that we and others can be blessed by seeing God work in people’s lives.
1 Cor 9:22b-23a I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some. I do all this for the sake of the gospel.
