Isaiah 48:12-22; Galatians 1:18-2:10; Mark 6:1-13
Nearly a century ago, King George V (1865-1936) broadcast a yearly Christmas message to the entire British Empire (ironically, including the USA). During a program one year, a technician saw that the wire to America was broken. Though listening, they were not hearing the king’s message. With no time for repairs, the man grabbed the ends of the broken wire in each hand and completed the circuit. The message of the king literally passed through that engineer and America heard the broadcast.
Today, we are the completed circuit for someone to hear the message of the King of kings. You may be the very conduit for someone to draw near and hear the Lord. You may feel ill-equipped to do so, but as a disciple of Jesus, you are sent out with the King’s message to all who will listen. The truth of the gospel transmission to someone waiting to hear may well depend upon you leaping into action today.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, send me. Amen.
Today’s devotion was written by Mark Ryman, Pastor of Saint John’s Lutheran Church in Asheboro, NC.
