They called him the miracle worker. It was a miracle if he ever worked at all.
But he went to church and was so moved by the message that he went forward during the invitation and professed to be converted. His family and friends were delighted when he prayed: “Dear Lord, save me and use me to Your glory.” Unfortunately, he added: “By the way, Lord, I’ll be available whenever You need me to give you or others need guidance or directions.”
God does not need our advice, He needs our attention. He does not need our suggestions, He needs our service. He does not need our words, He needs our wills. He does not need our heads, He needs our hearts.
More than anything, He wants our love–for if we truly love Him, we will labor for Him and live for Him. He also wants us to worship Him, and if we do, we will gladly and willingly work for Him. It is only when we make a definite decision to follow Him that we will make a daily difference in His world.
Jesus said, “Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them.”
Prayer: Help me, Father, to know Your will by studying Your Word that I may do Your work. Help me to live for Thee: through Christ. Amen.
Scripture for Today: John 13:17 Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them.
