Made for Something Great

I read an interesting quote recently: "You were made by the God who made Martin Luther King, Jr., Mother Theresa, and Steve Jobs." -- Donald Miller

Consider the contributuions these people made to the world during their time on earth. If that same God lives in you, how much of a contribution could YOU be to the world?

You are not a waste of time and/or space, you were created to make a contribution to the Kingdom of God for the world that is God’s. Pursue God and live out that contribution. Blessings as you Chase After Him.

Called to Greatness?

In Isaiah 6:8, the prophet says: “I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

The Lord was calling Isaiah to something great, and before knowing what it was, he stepped up and said, “I’ll do it!”

Thinking of how you pursue God, what might He be calling you to? Whatever the answer, keep in mind that the work you do, isnt about you, or your glory it is about the work of God, His Kingdom, and how He might be glorified through you.

“Jesus answered, "If I were trying to glorify myself, my glory would mean nothing. It is my Father who glorifies me, of whom you say, 'He is our God.'” -- John 8:84 ISV

“So then it does not depend on the man who wills or the man who runs, but on God who has mercy.”
-- Romans 9:16 NASB
