|TODAY’S SERVING JESUS IN YOUR EVERYDAY LIFE|
TOO FAR GONE TO SERVE? No!
“For you see your calling, brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called.
But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty; and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are, that no flesh should glory in His presence.” 1 Cor. 1:26-29
The Lord can use anyone He desires to serve Him, no matter our seeming limitations, and how imperative it is that we don’t give up and choose not to serve Him because we feel it impossible to be of any use to the Lord. We need to remember the glory in our serving Him doesn’t go to us anyway; it goes to Him. So it shouldn’t surprise us when He chooses the least likely people to serve to make it plain and clear He is to be glorified!
I sent a message to a precious husband and wife one day who were going through great medical trials. I hope my words to them might be an encouragement to you or perhaps someone you know!
PLEASE DO NOT GIVE UP! Some of the hardest times in our lives can be opportunities for the greatest growth in our relationship with Christ as well as for incredible service to HIM! Please don’t let the enemy make you think you both are too old or too sick or too far gone or too home bound to be of use to the Lord. You may find if you yield yourselves utterly to Jesus that now is the time you both are of the greatest use to Him ever!!!!
