DAILY READINGS: Leviticus 26:1-46; Psalm 140:1-141:10; Mark 10:32-52

We have this ministry. 2 Corinthians 4:1-2, NKJV 

The first six verses of this passage talk of a three-fold component to reaching the lost. It involves us (vv. 1-2), them (vv. 3-4), and Him (vv. 5-6). We need all three to make true evangelism work. It is not about us alone, but that’s where it starts. We have this call to serve Christ, (v. 1); but it also includes our character, (v. 2). We may be called to a certain sphere or ministry, but if we don’t walk the walk, our efforts are
neutralized. The lost, who are blind and dying (vv. 3-4), are looking for legitimate Christianity. Do they see it in us? —N. C. Funston

Give me a faithful heart, guided by Thee,
That each departing day henceforth may see
Some work of love begun, some deed of kindness done,
Some wand’rer sought and won, something for Thee. —Sylvanus Phelps
