Being An Open Door

These guys were as open as they come.

These guys were as open as they come.

“And when they [Paul & Barnabas] arrived and gathered the church together, they declared all that God had done with them, and how he had opened a door of faith to the Gentiles.” Acts 14:27

Paul and Barnabas declared how God had made an open door for those coming to believe in Him. How did He do it? He did it through their work.  Of course it was God who did it.  He does all things.  But… He does things through means.  The means can be us.  Our obedience, our faithfulness, our openness to others, our love for those who don’t yet believe, and -most of all?- our telling others the Gospel.

Are working to open doors of faith for people to come to believe? Or are we shutting them with our silence? Pray for boldness to be speak about faith and Jesus, to serve others with love, and to never be ashamed of the Gospel.
