Read Romans 10:14-15 (http://bit.ly/2QmhN6S)

Verses 14-15 reminds us that people cannot come to know Jesus unless they are told about Him and for that to happen someone must be sent to share the Good News. It goes on to say how beautiful are the feet which bring Good News.

If I truly believe in Jesus and salvation, I will share Him with others. My commitment for 2019 (and it would be amazing if you decided to do the same) is to make my feet beautiful, not with a pedicure but by sharing God’s Good News with others.

Let’s make 2019 a year of telling the Good News.

Read Romans 10:10-13 (http://bit.ly/2GzeyVW)

In the news we often read about people who are murderers, who are corrupt and people who have abused others etc. and verse 13 challenges me to remember that these people can know Jesus.

‘Anyone who calls on the Lord will be saved.’

God’s salvation is not limited to those who have a certain life style or do specific things, it does not discriminate. It is accessible for all, it is about believing in Jesus before behaving for Jesus. In 2019 how will you, a Jesus follower, share the possibility for salvation for everyone.

Read Romans 10:5-9 (http://bit.ly/2GxFANf)

Today it can be so hard to trust things – tv adverts, politicians and even what people say. Promises get made and broken without a second thought. However with God this is different, He is faithful to His promises. Verse 9 tells us that if we confess with our mouth and believe in our heart that Jesus is Lord we will be saved.

Knowing that Jesus is Lord can be hard, but we must remember it and trust Him in the toughest situations. Real faith is trusting God when it is the hardest. How will you trust that Jesus is Lord in 2019?

Read Romans 10:2-4 (http://bit.ly/2GwsFuY)

We live in a world where everybody wants to call the shots, be the boss and have the money. When it comes to our faith it does not work that way.

In verses 2-4 we see the Jewish people wanting to follow God but they do not know God’s way to follow God, instead, they do it their own way. We are reminded that Jesus ended the law and that we are only made right when we believe in Him. This is God’s term for salvation.

This is Good News! For 2019 how can you live knowing this Good News and sharing it with others?
