Pray also for me, that whenever I open my mouth, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel… (Ephesians 6:19)
I like this so very much.
I like that Paul has the humility to ask for prayer from those who are his spiritual juniors.
I like that Paul has the discernment to realize that the words that transform lives are not his own, but a gift from God.
I like that Paul has the honesty to show that he is sometimes fearful in proclaiming the gospel.
I like that Paul has the wisdom to acknowledge that the gospel is a mystery, beyond our ability to fully grasp without the help of the Holy Spirit.
On a day when I feel like I’m not enough,
which would be most every day
I am reminded that no one is…not even the legendary Paul.
Happy Wednesday, Beloved
