Philippians 4:13

"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Philippians 4:13

I was so proud of my seven year old son last Sunday.  As we sat in “big church”, he listened intently to the preacher’s sermon.  He turned to the correct scripture in his Bible and even asked me a question relating to the sermon.  However, we had a new pastor who was filling in for ours.   Let’s just say he went past 12 o’clock.  My child took my arm to look at my watch.  I began smiling because I knew what he was thinking.  He stated, “Mom, it is 12.”  Smiling, I shook my head in agreement that yes, it was 12.  Very seriously, he said, “Why are you smiling?”  HA!  He then closed his Bible, zipped it in his case and sat quietly watching my watch.  Let’s just say that at 12 O’clock, he tuned the preacher out!

It made me wonder, if I do that to.  Do I give a certain amount of time to the Lord, and when it is up, shut Him off?  Do I turn to God and serve him when it is convenient for me?  How about you?  Are you a Sunday Morning Church goers and the rest of the week, you are own your own?

This life isn’t about us.  It is about our savior, Jesus Christ.

John 3:30 says, “He must increase and we must decrease.”

Have you felt God calling you to do something but felt you didn’t have the time?  I have!  Are you doing what God has put you on earth to do?  If you are still living, there is a reason.  God has a plan for your life.  But remember, He didn’t say it would always be easy or convenient.

What are you feeling led to do?
*invite a neighbor to church?
*witness to a lost friend?
*cook a meal for a family going through a trial?
*join a ministry at church or in the community?
*start a Bible Study?

Whatever it is, I pray that you follow God in it.  It will be a blessing to join God in His work!
