Rhapsody of Realities TeeVo Devotional September 23rd – You’re In The Final Lap!

(Live For The Lord: Spread His Gospel)

TO THE BIBLE: 2 Corinthians 5:15
“…He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.”

LET’S TALK
If you’ve ever watched a relay race, you’d understand how important the last lap of the race is: you’d notice the spacing of the different athletes on the running track.

The team members take turns completing parts of a race: each runner finishing one leg passes to the next runner a stick-like object known as a “baton” while both are running in a marked exchange zone.
For the last lap, the coach would place his fastest runner there to ensure the race is won and any lapse from the other runners is made up for.

We’re in the final lap before the Lord returns, and in these last days, there’s only one thing that matters: living a life of purpose and for His glory! We are the last generation and His fastest runners in the race of saving others.

The question is, have you discovered this purpose for your life? Are you about His work? He wants you to do the work of salvation as quickly as possible, just like that last runner would for his team.

The purpose of the Father is the salvation of the whole world. That’s the reason He sent Jesus and your purpose in life is connected to this. No matter what you do in life, if you’re not reaching the lost and winning souls, you’re living an empty life.

The Bible says God doesn’t want anyone to perish but that everyone come to repentance (2 Peter 3:9). You bring Him glory in making this happen. He seeks to beautify the lives of those around you and lead them into righteousness through you; that’s living a purposeful life.

It doesn’t matter how fruitful or effective you might have been in other areas; you must seek to excel in soul winning, in taking the Gospel to the lost, hopeless, hurting and downtrodden, not just in your world, but also in the regions beyond.

A well-lived life, a successful life that pleases God, achieves those things God destined you to do. Therefore, bring Him glory by being effectual in leading men to righteousness.

Pray:
Dear Father, I thank you for giving me the opportunity and ability to influence those in my world with the Gospel. I go forth today, in the fullness of the blessings of Christ, impacting my world with your grace and righteousness, turning men from darkness to light in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
