Scripture - Acts 14

Observation: The news about God was spreading. God was using His people to bring the Plan of Salvation to all sorts of people. At one point people tried to worship Paul and Barnabas, thinking that they were actually Gods themselves. Paul and Barnabas knew that they were simply serving the living God. While they could have taken fame for themselves, they instead longed to point people towards God himself.

Application: God used his followers then to share the Plan of Salvation and he invited you to share it too. Is our focus on sharing God’s Plan, Hope, and Future, or is it too focused on our own goals?

Prayer: God, may my life and focus be on you completely. May I trust you enough to LIVE to make Your Name Famous instead of my own. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
