living of the gospel

And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. Mark 16:15

Even so hath the Lord ordained that they which preach the gospel should live of the gospel. I Corinthians 9:14

We ALL know {and I'm talking to believing ladies here} that we are to preach the gospel and teach all nations and be witnesses, but do we live of the gospel

If we have accepted Jesus as our Savior then our job is to preach/teach the gospel to others. To be a witness of what we know to be true-Jesus can save and change a person. BUT, do we live of the gospel? Of meaning "route, progression, procedure, program or curriculum."  Is the gospel our ROUTE? Is it our PROCEDURE in life? Have we made the study of it our PROGRAM or CURRICULUM? 

On those days when I am 'stuck' at home and do not come in contact with anyone besides my own children, who have  heard the gospel many times already, I tend to feel as though there is no part of witnessing I can do. But on the contrary, there is much I can do. I SHOULD do, but often {always} fall short of doing.

It should be the route {path to a specific destination} and procedure {set of steps taken} I take in my chores {have you ever asked God what needs to be done first? me either}. 
It should be THE study of my life: be on my lips continually as I instruct the precious souls in my care each day.

For today: I am asking the Lord to guide my thoughts to remember His love for me when dealing with my children.
