Greg Laurie Devotional 17th January 2022 Written By Greg Laurie

TOPIC: One of Life’s Greatest Blessings

SCRIPTURE: In the same way, there is more joy in heaven over one lost sinner who repents and returns to God than over ninety-nine others who are righteous and haven’t strayed away! —Luke 15:7

MESSAGE

What is the gospel? Literally defined, the gospel means “good news.” The gospel teaches that we’re all separated from God by our sins, and there is nothing we can do to satisfy the righteous demands of God on our own.

Also, the gospel doesn’t teach that we’re good. Rather, it teaches that we’re bad and separated from God. But 2,000 years ago, God sent His son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross for our sins and rise from the dead. And if we’ll turn from our sins and ask Christ to come into our lives, He will forgive us.

He will fill that hole in our hearts and give us the purpose and direction in life we’ve been seeking. And best of all, He will give us the absolute assurance of Heaven for the afterlife.

That is the gospel, and we need to share it with people. The Bible teaches that conversion is the work of the Holy Spirit. But God reaches people through people, so we need to seek to lead others to Christ.

We have a choice: We can evangelize, or we can fossilize. If we only take in and never share our faith, it’s detrimental to us spiritually.

I think one of the reasons some Christians never have led another person to Christ is they haven’t asked anyone this question: Would you like to accept Jesus Christ right now?

You never know when God will prompt you to ask this. In fact, it might be awkward for you to ask, but do it anyway. And if someone says yes, then get ready for one of the greatest blessings you’ve ever experienced in life.

Jesus said, “There is more joy in heaven over one lost sinner who repents and returns to God than over ninety-nine others who are righteous and haven’t strayed away!” (Luke 15:7 NLT).

There’s great joy in sharing your faith.
