Seize the Moment – Day 295

A Gospel Movement!

Titus 2


Good morning! This is Pastor Jerry Ingalls from New Castle First Baptist Church and today is Wednesday, January 6—the Feast of Epiphany. This is a rich day for the Church; so, may the Lord cause you to rejoice in the miracle of Christmas once again, today.


God does not call us to build a monument to Jesus, but, rather, a movement of people who proclaim the gospel of Jesus. How are we invited, by God’s Word, to invest in people?


Men and women, alike, younger and older, we are all invited to hear the invitation.


Listen to Titus 2:3-8, “Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves to much wine. They are to teach what is good, and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled. Likewise, urge the younger men to be self-controlled. Show yourself in all respects to be a model of good works, and in your teaching show integrity, dignity, and sound speech that cannot be condemned, so that an opponent may be put to shame, having nothing evil to say about us.”


What do we have that we can invest in other people? Here are a few ideas to help you to start to think about how God is inviting you:

Our time! This is the most limited; therefore, the most precious of our resources.

Our money! Your heart follows your money… So, be careful of where you lead your heart with how you invest your money!

Your heart! Talk about a precious and very limited resource. Love is your greatest enterprise and your greatest risk.

Your mind! Start training your mind with God’s Word so that you can invest your mental energy on what matter most in life.


Seize the moment and invest in a movement of the gospel of Jesus today. Pour all that you have into the eternal work of people.
