Hands and Feet

We are the hands and feet of God.

So why aren’t His hands working, and why aren’t His feet moving? We’ve become rather lethargic in our ministry of, and witness for, God. That needs to change. We are ambassadors for God– we are ALL called to share the Gospel with those God has put in our lives.

Maybe we don’t know how to start moving. But all we have to do is show up for God. We simply need to be willing to let Him work through us. We need to let Him use us to do His work. And if we do this, we will never fail, because He never fails. He is God – nothing is impossible for Him.

Maybe we feel outnumbered. Just like Gideon and his 300 men, the church today is greatly outnumbered. And yet God did great things through Gideon and his men. He can, and will, do great things through us too!

Maybe we don’t know where to start. But we don’t need to worry about that. If we let God use us, He’ll open up doors for us – He’ll show us where to start. And better yet, He’ll always be by our side. It’s not about our plans or our strength. It’s about God working in and through us.

Will you show up for God?

1 John 4:4 You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. (NIV)

Philippians 4:13 For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength. (NLT)
