How is sharing the Good News of Jesus similar to running in a race? In today’s passage, Paul uses a famous Corinthian sporting event to help us see how giving up certain liberties can be directly tied to sharing the Gospel with others.
Sharing the Good News of Jesus is all about working together. Each role is important in giving others the chance to hear the Gospel. Wherever you are, you are part of the great mission given to us by Jesus.
Our freedom to do certain things is important to us. But there is a different kind of freedom that is even more valuable than those freedoms. Once you experience it, you’ll discover that it’s worth sharing, even if it means letting go of a few of those other freedoms.
Moms, you have an important part in displaying the good news of Jesus to your children. But that’s not the only part you have in the Gospel. You also get to take part in experiencing the goodness of the Gospel as Jesus helps you in this important role.
Each of us get to have a part in the Gospel, the good news of Jesus in two distinct ways. The first ways is in responding to the good news of Jesus. The second way is in doing your part in sharing it with others.
