Every Good Work
by Randy Chambers, 2015-05-16
2 Corinthians 9:8, NIV: And God is able to make all grace
abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you
will abound in every good work.
We are called to do the work of Christ. Do you feel worthy of that call? Whether
you feel worthy or not, there are none of us who deserve to do the work of God.
We did not earn the right to know Jesus and to join in with Him in the work of
the Father. That is important to always keep in mind. In doing so, we cannot
esteem ourselves higher than we should--neither can we esteem ourselves lower. We
simply are in the place God has put us. The work is His, and it is He that has
called us to it. He has chosen each of us for a particular work, not because we
are worthy, but because He is sovereign. Some of the greatest things God will
work through you may be at a time you feel undeserving or weak. Thatís because
His work through you is not about you. As we understand this, we are less swayed
by emotions and personal attitude. We simply become available--and God does
through us what He is able--above anything we are able to do ourselves.
