‘For in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed, a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: ‘The righteous will live by faith'” (Romans 1:17, NIV)
Tutus, tap shoes, free throws and touchdowns? What do these things have in common? More than you think.
Aren’t we, as Christians, told to live not by our feeling, but by our faith, choosing to believe that our dreams are happening even when we can’t see it?
God has opened doors to show people His love through everyday activities. It doesn’t feel like work. It doesn’t feel like “evangelism”. Yet somehow, people are asking questions; somehow, people want to know why we do things differently. God is good, holy, and just; but God is also creative.
What unsuspecting hobby does God want to use in your life to show His love and truth to others?
Prayer: Lord, Thank You for hearing the prayers of Your servants and for creatively opening doors for the Gospel in a context readily understood. Lord, I pray that many today will become aware of abilities, aptitudes, and spiritual gifts that have been divinely place in their lives for a purpose. Amen.
