Today's Good News


2/22 1 Corinthians 9:1-6
1 Do I not have as much freedom as anyone else? Am I not an apostle? Haven’t I seen Jesus our Lord with my own eyes? Isn’t it because of my hard work that you are in the Lord? 2 Even if others think I am not an apostle, I certainly am to you, for you are living proof that I am the Lord’s apostle. 3 This is my answer to those who question my authority as an apostle. 4 Don’t we have the right to live in your homes and share your meals? 5 Don’t we have the right to bring a Christian wife along with us as the other disciples and the Lord’s brothers and Peter do? 6 Or is it only Barnabas and I who have to work to support ourselves?
The Lord decides whom He will call. He chooses that person and equips them with the ability to answer His call. Guard against seeking someone else’s call. Refuse to be seduced by envy or selfishness. Give of yourself and the Lord will use you. Bloom where you are planted because that is exactly where the Lord will use you.
