Lent Day 21

Navigating the Wilderness

I have become all things to all people, that I might by all means save some.  1 Corinthians 9:16-27  Paul already knows that not everyone will receive him as an apostle in Christ but it won’t be for lack of trying. As a believer he celebrated with the Jews, practiced law with the Pharisees, prayed with the Gentiles and ate with the marginalized. With all the world has to offer, detours in life are bound to happen. No one promises that the journey will be straight. Don’ suffer the detours! Remember, the purpose for the journey never changes; to proclaim the gospel, and to praise and glorify God in order that others may also come to believe.
