There seemed to be a weight on him. My friend seemed to be struggling and I wanted to help but not pry.
“I know I’m not much of a Christian,” I said, “but if there’s anything I can pray for you about… Just know that I’d be glad to.”
I rambled a bit more and then had to keep moving, keep working.
I thought about what I said, keep thinking about it.
I get that in the grand scheme, comparing myself to many others, I’m not much. But I also think that’s a lie.
In the eyes of heaven, the eyes of my Father, broken and messed up as we all are, every voice lifted in prayer, every heart that cries out (especially for the needs of others) is mighty, powerful, amazing, awesome!
Our enemy lies by showing us only the image of our humanity, our sin.
The Holy Spirit negates those lies with His presence inside us, the gifts He gives us. Jesus negates those lies with His blood that washes over us. Almighty God negates those lies by choosing us, bringing us into His Kingdom, His family.
Can we strike a balance between humility and Godly confidence? Can we find a way to see our greatness in Him and know that it is only because of Him?
Christianity, REAL Christians, are the umbilicus that God chooses and empowers to bring His life to this world.
We just need to realize it.
