Action: Send

READ: “And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, ‘How timely is the arrival of those who proclaim the good news’” Rom 10.15.

THINK: God is a sending God; so is his people. The church exists to announce the gospel. To do this, it sends people, Acts 8.14; 11.22; 13.3; 15.3; Col 4.8, and offerings, Phil 4.16-18 (see Lk 8.3). The church practices hospitality as a missionary function, Rom 15.24; 16.2, 23; 1 Cor 16.6, 11; 3 Jn 8, as well as communication, Acts 15.33; Col 4.10-14; 1 Thes 3.5; Rev 1.11. It also sends help to needy brethren, Acts 11.29-30; 1 Cor 16.1-3.

ACT: Evaluate needs and relinquish what is yours to send to others.

PRAY: Father what I have is yours: possessions, time, words, and children.

ASK: What do I have that I can send to further the gospel?
