DAILY?READINGS: Gen. 18:1-33; Job 21:1-34; Matt. 10:1-23
That ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel; Philippians 1:27
There was division creeping in to the Philippian church, but here God gives us a secret for maintaining unity in every local church. “Striving together for…the gospel.” When God’s people are all actively involved in going out to their neighbourhood, reaching the unsaved for Christ, there will be no time left for internal bickering and criticism. Instead, when the saints gather they will be united as they pray together, encourage one another and share experiences of their outreach. Remember the Lord said “Go ye”! Yes indeed, “Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel” (Mark 16:15). —David Croudace
Salvation! Oh salvation! The joyful sound proclaim.
Till earth’s remotest regions, have learned Messiah’s name. —R. Heber
