"And now I entrust you to God and the message of his grace that is able to build you up and give you an inheritance with all those he has set apart for himself” (Acts 20:32, NLT).
I don’t know what kind of day you had. Hopefully it was full of joy and moments to treasure. But I’m fairly sure for some of you it was not. And for some of you today may have been glorious but you remember or someday will remember that some Sunday’s don’t end that way. You may have had to contend with some difficult brethren, you may be struggling with your own spiritual health or the physical health of someone you cherish, you may be chasing youth or maturity, you may be struggling to fit in in a new place or fearing you’ll soon be having to find one, you may be fighting your own demons or worse those sent by the evil one, you may have become unsure of your purpose or self-conscious of your abilities.
I want to call you back to remember something special. You have been entrusted with the “Word of His grace.” With that Word which can build you and those to whom you speak up. To that Word which can set you and those you are influencing in the midst of all who will receive His inheritance. Yes, it may be a tough day, but there’s Good News. Your mission is to share the Word entrusted to you. Joy in that greatness. We are blessed to be God’s ambassadors. Rejoice in the midst of whatever because you’re mindful of your mission.
