Evening Devotion: Power

“For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.”
I Corinthians 1:18 NKJV

The gospel is the power of God. That should be the greatest comfort in our efforts to evangelize, it’s not our responsibility to convince or save.

1 Corinthians 3:6-7 NKJV “I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase. So then neither he who plants is anything, nor he who waters, but God who gives the increase.”

As we do our best to share the gospel message we need to rest in the fact that we may just be a seed planter. We lift Jesus up and He draws people to Himself.

The power is the gospel. Not our ability. Not our presentation. Not an ability to move someone’s emotions. The gospel.

Pray for the lost. Share the gospel with those you come in contact with and trust the Holy Spirit to do the rest.
