Read: Romans 1:14-17, 2 Timothy 3:16-17

Romans 1:14-17

14I am obligated both to Greeks and non-Greeks, both to the wise and the foolish. 15That is why I am so eager to preach the gospel also to you who are in Rome. 16For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile. 17For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed—a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.”

2 Timothy 3:16-17

16All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.


If you steadfastly desire to serve the Lord, opportunities will present themselves. When a door is open to you, walk through it confidently, knowing the Holy Spirit will guide your words. In preparation, read Scripture. There are no better words than those that came straight from Jesus’ mouth! Make it a goal to memorize a new Bible verse every week.
