We’ve been blessed with the kingdom of God. And with that blessing comes the responsibility of caring for and growing the kingdom. The work of God is not for God to do alone; He brings us into it. It becomes our own. Our greatest gift and blessing is to be one with God in His work.
What would we do differently if we always paused and saw our lives this way? As something to offer up to God, all we have and all we are never belonging to us, but to Him. The liberation of God’s purpose would drive us to compassion and good, would invite and embrace, would hold to truth through every storm.
What strength are we denying ourselves of by holding ourselves back from God?
We can be better in Him. In His work. In His purpose. Our God, our Savior, is enough and more for all of us.
Oh God, the Almighty, whose blinding power carries light of hope to all who come and see, Thy embracing sacrifice lightens my load and weighs me with the efforts of Thy kingdom. How better to serve Thee, my Lord, my God, than by making Thy work my work? Liberating and Embracing with Thy infinite love.
Take part in the kingdom!
