Advent Devotional: Friday, December 21

For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth... (Romans 1:16)

The size of the work can seem overwhelming if we compare it to our ability. But God did not choose us to carry His message because we were powerful; nor does He require us to become powerful before we share his love with others. The Gospel message itself has power from God to save people. Jesus also describes the Kingdom of God as yeast that will continue to grow and rise. Do we believe that our little work, joined to the power of God's Word, can become a great harvest?

Lord, increase our faith!
