It has been a while since I have not posted on my Read & Pass the WORD weekly Bible sharing. From this week on, I will update this every Wednesday. For this week, I have selected WORD from Daily Encounter by Richard Dick Innes of ACTS International, http://www.actsweb.org/encounter/daily.php. . The preach focuses on Romans 1:16.
Let me start on the poem he included in his preaching. Here it goes…
One song can spark a moment,
One flower can wake the dream.
One tree can start a forest,
One bird can herald spring.
One smile begins a friendship,
One handclasp lifts a soul.
One star can guide a ship at sea,
One word can frame the goal.
One vote can change a nation,
One sunbeam can light a room.
One candle can wipe out darkness,
One laugh will conquer gloom.
One step must start each journey,
One word must start each prayer.
One hope will raise our spirits,
One touch can show you care.
One voice can speak with wisdom,
One heart can know what's true.
One life can make the difference,
You see, it's up to you and me.
Most often God knocks and calls us but we are too much preoccupied, busy, and cannot be reached. Some have the notion that only those have position in the church have the responsibility to do God’s work or spread His word. Each of us can serve God in our own simple and little way. We just have to be available. We just have to say YES and let be God’s hand in the workplace, road, mall, blogs, and most especially in one's own family.
Let’s hold on to this verse: "I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile."1 Romans 1:16.
