Day 3: Unmoved by Trials
But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.Acts 20:24 (KJV)
Reflection: This scripture is a bold declaration of commitment to the Lord. Despite the trials and tribulations that may come, the speaker remains unmoved, prioritizing the gospel of God’s grace above personal comfort. It’s an example of unwavering commitment, reminding us to prioritize our divine mission above worldly concerns.
Illustration: It’s like a marathon runner, focused on reaching the finish line. No matter the hurdles or the pain, the runner presses on. So too must we press on in our spiritual race, focused on our divine calling and not allowing worldly distractions to move us.
Prayer: Lord, thank you for the divine calling you’ve placed on our lives. Help us to remain unmoved in our devotion to you, prioritizing your gospel above all. Empower us to run our race with joy, looking unto you, our strength and guide. Amen.
