Today’s devotional is teaching us how to live with God in us, and to be His representative for this generation. Christ was God’s way of showing us that a man can live a sinless life, and directed toward helping others in His name, not for any recognition for self. He allowed man to see God in the flesh, and allowed God to see all the challenges mankind has. Not as if God needed the lesson, as Christs life and death was purely Gods gift to us. We humans have a hard time following the rules and constantly fall down in our walk, till we again see that we can’t do this on our own. We need God, He doesn’t need us. We are His creation and bring Him pride in our accomplishments like any parent, but more often than not it is God helping us through our current problem. For some reason, most must be at the breaking point before they ever admit there is a God and acknowledge His power. Lord help this planet if everything were to run smoothly, we would be cheated out of the blessing that is the relationship with God. Just more proof that God knows all, and as our Creator, knew exactly what it would take to open our eyes. How many people, as well as characters in a program, have no notice for God until they need Him. Then they timidly go to the Lord with request, with promises galore, trying to barter with our Creator. How many actually follow through with their promises, yet all fully expect God to come through for their need.
We should keep in mind that when we tell anyone that we are a Christian, we become an example of what Christ is in human form to those who may not know of our Savior. No wonder being a Christian has a bad name. They see all these people who claim to be like Christ acting horrible, and there is no distinction between those who just claim it, and those who actually live it. We should each find what we are good at, and do it to bring glory to God. It doesn’t have to be something in the ministry, whatever you do, do it to the best of your ability, like someone is right behind you about to inspect your work. Have good work ethic, and don’t be lazy. When you want something from God, do you just want to wait around till He feels like it? No, you ask because you are in need and we are most certainly live in an instant society. We all need to step up and be our best, and stop just making just the minimum. We are children of the most high God, and as such we should act with self respect. Be what you desire in others, when you are in need. Use what talent God gave you, and know it all has a purpose.
