S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
1 Corinthians 9:22
To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some.
Earlier in this chapter, in verse 19, Paul said “I have become a slave to everyone in order to win as many people to Christ as possible.” In this text he’s happy if he can just save “SOME.”
I think it’s true that early on in life everyone reaches for the IDEAL. Later in life, most of us reach as hard as we can to attain the REAL. Paul was not as young as he used to be. However, you can sense that he’s more passionate than ever to reach people for Jesus. Perhaps Paul did more to establish the Christian faith than anyone in history, but as he’s winding down and running to finish the race strong, he said, “I’ll do anything possible just to save SOME.” The longer l live, the more I’m aware of the fact that I personally will never win the entire planet for Jesus. But I’m passionate to at least save “SOME.” Today, if you can’t win them all, don’t quit until you save “SOME.”
Thank You for giving Your life to save Me. Help me give my life to save “SOME.” Amen
