Belong to Jesus

In our Bible Reading today, Paul said that God called him to tell people about Jesus. God wants us to tell people about Jesus, too. But sometimes we think that we don’t know enough about the Bible. Or we think that people do not like us. These are just excuses that stop us from sharing the news about Jesus.
Paul said in these verses that God gave him the special work of being an apostle. This meant that Paul’s job was to lead people to Jesus. God wants us to tell people about Jesus, too. Why? So that other people can believe and follow Him.
Paul also said that we belong to Jesus. Christians are Jesus’ body. Another name for Jesus’ body is the church. We should love each other and show people in the world that Jesus loves them, too.
Maybe today you will go to work or to school. You will meet people who need to know about Jesus. Ask God to give you the courage to tell these people about His wonderful plan for their lives.
