A purposeful life is a life given to the desire of God to reconcile men back to Him. For in God all things exist and for Him we exist. Through Christ He has reconciled us to Himself and has given us the ministry of reconciliation (2 Cor 5:18).
Paul admonishes brethren not to openly engage in actions which causes another brother to stumble. We who exist for God’s purpose should not do that which will destabilize a brother’s walk with God and adversely impact the ministry of reconciliation entrusted to us.
Let us take advantage of the opportunities we have and preach the gospel with love and sensitivity. So that men will not be repelled or confused but will become reconciled to God through Christ.
Dear Father, thank You for committing to my hands the ministry of reconciliation. I pray for the boldness to preach the gospel of Christ that all men might be saved in Jesus’ name, Amen.
