5/26/14 Daily Devotion

Ephesians 3:1 For this reason I, Paul, the prisoner of Christ Jesus for the sake of you Gentiles–

A prisoner of Christ for the sake of the Gentiles? Seriously? How can Paul make such a claim? Why would Paul make such a claim? Paul made the claim because it’s true. Paul was the chosen vessel through which God shared the good news of His glorious salvation with the Gentiles. Paul was a prisoner of and for the gospel, both literally and figuratively. He was, literally, imprisoned for his willingness to share the gospel. In the figurative sense, he was a willing prisoner to the gospel because he had chosen to follow the path of God for his life. What a different world this would be if more Christians felt the same way.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, show me how to become a prisoner to Your gospel.
