“But I do not consider my life as something of value or dear to me, so that I may [with joy] finish my course and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify faithfully of the good news of God’s [precious, undeserved] grace [which makes us free of the guilt of sin and grants us eternal life].”ACTS 20:24 AMP
The apostle Paul was a man who was on a mission. His call and mission was to take the gospel to the utter ends of the earth. When we understand the truth of the gospel which states that we are saved by the grace of God through faith we too will desire to share the gospel where ever we go.
The beauty of the gospel is that Jesus paid the penalty that we deserved and in Him we can be complete forgiven and set free from the curse of sin and death. In Christ we are free. Those who reject Jesus Christ fail to understand who He is and will weep and mourn when they stand before Him someday unless they humble themselves and repent.
Each day we have the opportunity to lay down our lives for the gospel. We have the opportunity to count our lives as lost and seek first His kingdom and His righteousness. Each day we draw ever nearer to His return. May we be abiding in Him each day to be prepared when the last trumpet sounds.
