Do we cooperate with the Holy Spirit to serve as God calls? Are we creating pockets of God’s Kingdom here on earth? Do our lives as Christians make a difference in the world? They should. It’s what God calls us to. It’s why God gifts us.
God is looking for hands to use. God is looking for Christians who are developing and using their God given gifts for a larger good. Are you willing to be a living sacrifice and offer yourself fully to God for the benefit of yourself and others?
Parenting gives us great empathy for God’s role as our heavenly father. We understand how frustrated he must be with us at times. And as we forgive our children and our parents we better understand God’s ability to cover us in grace and forgiveness too.
