Through You

The earth is the Lord’s and everything in it; the world and all who live in it (Psalm 24:1 NIV).

The Lord is calling out to the people of the earth to come to him. He has strategically placed his children in places where they can influence and make a difference for the kingdom of God. Sometimes it may feel as if God has placed you in a dark place.  You’d rather not be there.  The truth is  you have been placed there so Jesus can love those people through you.

The Lord has hand chosen you to be where you are.  He knows you can do this or you wouldn’t be there. He wants to bring himself to the people around you, through you.

    This post makes me think of the words of Colossians 1:2, where it is written, “To the saints and faithful brethren in Christ which are at Colosse….” He said, “In Christ…at Colosse.” The order is that first we are in Christ and then at Colosse (or whatever place God has put you).

    If we are in Christ, then we are indeed being ambassadors of Jesus Christ to the place where He has put us. If we will be faithful where we are AT, then we must be grounded in who we are IN.

    Thanks for the encouragement to simply follow Christ wherever He has put you!
