2 Corinthians 4:1-6
When is the gospel first preached in the Bible? We might say Genesis 3:15 but Paul goes back even further. He says that the very first ‘Let there be light’ was a gospel moment (Genesis 1:3). It was the Word of God triumphing over darkness. But that moment of colossal power is, says Paul, repeated in every conversion. Each time someone turns to Christ God works an almighty ‘Let there be light!’ And this shining comes through the preaching of Jesus. What kind of power is involved in proclaiming Christ!
PRAISE God for ‘switching the lights on’ for you.
PRAY for opportunities to speak His word.
