August 9: The Main Thing

Scripture Lesson: Philippians 1:18

Today is the birthday of Deion Sanders. Sanders starred in both the NFL and Major League Baseball. Sanders’ most notable games in baseball were played for the Braves and Reds. His nickname, “Prime Time,” suggested that when the game was on the line, he would come through for the win.

In today’s text, Paul was encouraging the church at Philippi to keep the main thing the main thing. All that really matters when life is on the line is to be sure that Jesus Christ is being preached. There is no other way for mankind to come to God than through his Son, Jesus Christ. In our daily living, the most important thing we can do is to share Jesus with others. Not all of us are called to be preachers, but all of us are called to be sharers of Jesus Christ. To preach is simply to proclaim God’s word, and each of us have the responsibility to do just that. For Paul, it did not matter how it was done: all that mattered to him was that it was done and Jesus was proclaimed. Whenever Jesus was proclaimed, Paul was overjoyed! Nothing should make Christians happier than sharing what Jesus has done for them.

  1. How can we proclaim Jesus in our daily lives?

  2. Why do you think Paul had great joy when Jesus was proclaimed?

  3. How can we get that same joy?

It is indeed prime time to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with those we see every day -- both by the way we live and what we say.

I pray I will continue to become a better "sharer" of Jesus in all areas of my life, family, field, and work.
