Give Your Life for Something


Add You are going to give your life for something. What will it be - a career, a sport, a hobby, fame, wealth? None of these will have lasting significance. Service is the pathway to real significance. As we serve together in God's family, our lives take on eternal importance. Paul said, "I want you to think about how all this makes you more significant, not less . . . because of what you are a part of." (1 Corinthians 12:14a, 19 MSG) God wants to use you to make a difference in his world. He wants to work through you. What matters is not the duration of your life, but the donation of it. If you're not involved in any service or ministry, what excuse have you been using? Abraham was old; Jacob was insecure; Leah was unattractive; Joseph was abused; Moses stuttered. Gideon was poor; Samson was codependent; Rahab was immoral; David had an affair and all kinds of family problems. Elijah was suicidal; Jeremiah was depressed; Jonah was reluctant; Naomi was a widow. John the Baptist was eccentric to say the least; Peter was impulsive and hot-tempered; Martha worried a lot. The Samaritan woman had several failed marriages; Zacchaeus was unpopular; Thomas had doubts; Paul had poor health; and Timothy was timid. That is quite a variety of misfits, but God used each of them in his service. He will use you, too, if you stop making excuses.
