“I’m speaking to you out of deep gratitude for all that God has given me, and especially as I have responsibilities in relation to you. Living then, as every one of you does, in pure grace, it’s important that you not misinterpret yourselves as people who are bringing this goodness to God.”
“No, God brings it all to you. The only accurate way to understand ourselves is by what God is and by what he does for us, not by what we are and what we do for him.” Romans 12, Msg
God loves letting us in on His work, but we are not the reason for the work. He allows us to join Him so He is even more known to us about who He is…the Almighty God, Ruler of all, Creator of all, in control of all. He is our salvation, our light through the darkness. He loves us, wants to transform us along the journey to be more and more like Him. It’s still not about us. It’s always about Him.
“Everything come from him;
Everything happens through him;
Everything ends up in him.
Always glory! Always praise!
Yes. Yes. Yes.
Dear Heavenly Father, We are not moving from Romans 12, Your Word to us, until we get this right. Thank you for your teaching. Thank you for allowing us to join You in Your work from time to time, knowing full well we are not responsible for the outcome of this work. What a relief! You don’t need us…we need YOU…every hour of every day. It’s about learning more about You IN the work. It’s You. It’s always been You and always will be…You! Yes, In Jesus Name, Amen
