Daily Word…

“… if anyone forces you to go one mile, go with him two miles.”

Matthew 5:41

I heard a wonderful story recently about a man in our church, an attorney, who had driven almost two hours from home to consult with a client about some legal issues. He met with the whole family and spent much of the afternoon discussing legal matters. After the business was completed, he got in his car and headed home.

He was several miles down the road, and felt the Spirit of God convicting him that he needed to go back and share Christ with that family. So he turned his car around, went back, sat down with that family, and led them to faith in Jesus Christ!

Obedience isn’t always easy, is it? It wasn’t convenient for this fine man to turn his car around and go share Christ with this family, but it was what God wanted him to do. And very often, God calls Christians to go the extra mile to show others the love of Christ.

Maybe you’ve found yourself resistant at times to being inconvenienced for the sake of Christ. But Jesus is clear… go the extra mile. Show others you love them by being okay with “inconvenience.” Let the interruptions of life be your ministry as you plant the seed of the Gospel in the lives of as many people as you can!

DON’T LET “INCONVENIENCE” PREVENT OBEDIENCE. GO THE EXTRA MILE TO SHOW THE LOVE OF CHRIST TO OTHERS!
