Vital signs- Sunday, January 31st, 2021

“But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions. Then Jesus said to His disciples, “Assuredly, I say to you that it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. And again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.” When His disciples heard it, they were greatly astonished, saying, “Who then can be saved?” But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Then Peter answered and said to Him, “See, we have left all and followed You. Therefore what shall we have?” So Jesus said to them, “Assuredly I say to you, that in the regeneration, when the Son of Man sits on the throne of His glory, you who have followed Me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or lands, for My name’s sake, shall receive a hundredfold, and inherit eternal life. But many who are first will be last, and the last first.”

‭‭Matthew‬ ‭19:22-30‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Many of the disciples were not well-known or well-detailed in the Bible.  However, that does not negate their significance to God.  All of the disciples have the privilege of being the foundation for Jesus’ Church.  No act of service is insignificant or too small if it is done to honor God.

Are you feeling insignificant, irrelevant, or too small to be used by God? God delights in doing big things with that which is small and seemingly insignificant.  Nothing we do for God is ever in vain. Even the smallest thing we do in His honor will not be overlooked.

Father God, I thank You that Your power is made perfect in weakness. Lord, encourage me to persevere in serving even when I don’t feel adequate. Remind me that You choose the lowly things to magnify Your glory. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
