Our current sermon series is. “Everyday Heroes of Faith.” The sermons have been speaking to me regarding what I can do and the importance of “me” when it comes to my impact to others, and how I cannot fall short when it comes to my commitment to Christ.
What exactly does that mean? First, I must realize there are obstacles in life that will fail without God. I must be totally committed to having God in every aspect of my life and be willing to hand over everything to him; I cannot hold back because it will come back to bite me. Am I missing my blessing because I don’t give it all to God?
Second, we are so important to others! We are unique in our abilities and unique in how we alone can reach certain people. God has designed us so each of us must do our part, otherwise, people around us will be lost. If we feel like God has put someone on our hearts, we should take notice as it is important! We might be the only chance that person will have to hear, see, and know God!
Third, we must guard against growing tired and comfortable. Pastor Selena talked about how we will always walk in our flesh, but we should not be controlled by it! WE must use what we have been given, as God has given each of us a special skill, gift, and or ability. Other people not only need me, but they need the whole congregation. God created us for that purpose.
When we see a problem, Jesus sees possibilities of how we might learn to depend on Him more. We believe God ‘worked’ miracles, but we struggle thinking he can do it “now” and “for me.”
Jesus gave thanks before the miracles happened; an example being blessing the bread and the bread multiplying. The provision we are given are a result of prayers that were lifted both present and past.
Use what you have been given so others might see it, might think on it, and might be saved!
