The text you will be reading today, Acts 17-20, is about the missionary journeys of Paul. Try to get into Paul's head today. What made this man tick? Where did he get his insatiable desire to preach the gospel, many times at the peril of his own life? Begin your reading at this time.
The Bereans were "examining the Scriptures daily to see whether these things were so," (Acts 17:11). As you listen to sermons and classes make sure you are testing what you here against the standard of God's Word. Do not base where you spend eternity on what someone tells you. Check out everything in the Bible before you believe or practice it. Don't turn into a hypercritical troublemaker in the church. Just be smart about following biblical teaching.
Have you ever thought about doing missionary work? The church is always in need of missionaries to strengthen the Lord's work all over the world or to start new works. You do not have to be planning to go into full-time preaching in order to go on a mission. The church sends out hundreds of members on missions who have secular careers. If you think you would be interested in something like this, talk to your church leaders about it.
Remember that you also have a mission work right here. Look around you. There are people all over this community that need to hear about Jesus. You are the instrument chosen by God to get the message to them. You are in a position to reach certain souls that no one else can reach. Watch for the opportunities God will be placing before you today. Pray to your Father that he will give you the boldness to proclaim His message with confidence as you know you should.
