In follow up to my last blog, I want to share something with you.
The world may call you worthless and say that you aren’t enough. Your credentials may be weak, your heart may quaver, you may be downright homely, you may be caught in addiction, ashamed, forsaken, alone.
God is choosing you!
The God that created the universe, put planets in orbit, developed each strand of DNA and breathes life into every creature invaded earth and died, rising again to destroy the work of sin and hopelessness.
He then looked forward into time to make sure that you were on the other end of this post and reading words of hope, maybe for the first time. Some of you already know this and believe in Jesus. Some of you are not so sure. Jesus is too far out there, to far removed by history and religion.
But He isn’t. He’s right here, right now speaking to you.
You are chosen. No one else may believe in you or give you and opportunity to live. Not just be alive, but LIVE!
He wants your life, your dreams, your heart, everything. He calls you to be a living sacrifice, to give your strength and love to others in serving, in giving. But not to destroy you, to steal what little you have left.
He takes our broken to make it whole. He takes are ruined to make it new. He takes our falling, our failure to make us stand. He takes what is dead and buried to make it rise again!
He has chosen you.
Will you choose Him?
I would love the opportunity to come and speak to your small group, church or organization about what God has done in my life and what He can do in yours. As I seek to raise the remainder of the support for the mission trip to Nicaragua, please consider having me come and meet with you. We’ll sing and share and pray together.
