Acts 2:22

19 Jul

‘Your life is God’s gift to you. What you do with your life is your gift to God.’ Nothing could be further from the truth… It really strokes our human ego to think that we can do something for God. Yet the truth is we cannot. Only God can do something for God. In His infinite grace He allows us to participate in what He is doing by placing His life inside us and then expressing that life through us. If we aren’t operating in that mode, then all we do adds up to zero. How did Jesus live in this world? Didn’t He do great things for God? He did not… Do you know how many miracles Jesus could have done if it hadn’t been His Father within Him doing the works? Not one.
