Devotion 1/29/30

Colossians 4:15 Give my greetings to the brothers at Laodicea, and to Nympha and the church in her house.

There are many ways Christians can be used in the expansion of the kingdom of God. Some of these ways are simplistic in nature and cause us no hardships, but still there are ways that will bring us to the need of making sacrifices for the sake of the gospel. When the need arrived for a meeting place in Colosse, Nympha offer her house for these gatherings. Within this time period, this was a common practice as church buildings were not as common as they are in our society. As we have plenty of churches today, things are different; but what else can we do to further the work of God? Are we doing everything possible, or are we doing only what we can get away with?

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me open up my life, allowing it to be used for the advancement of the gospel in any way You see fit.
