It’s All Possible
March 10, 2023
As we reflect on the life of Christ and especially on what He endured and accomplished as He journeyed to the cross, one can’t help but to realize anew what a high and holy calling it is to be a disciple of Jesus Christ. When we read scripture to understand what that calling entails, we are overwhelmed with the scope of the task before us and with an acute awareness of our inability to carry out that task.
Even though the task is daunting, and our natural talents and abilities are wanting, there is one assurance we can hold onto…the comfort that we are not doing this in our own power, but with the enabling power of the Holy Spirit within us. Our job is to submit and surrender our will to God’s will and then humbly follow where He leads. He will provide what is needed and use us to bless others.
As we reflect this Lent season on how we can live more obediently for Christ, let’s look to His word for encouragement; remembering that God is able to do more than we can ask or imagine. God is able to make all grace abound so we can have all we need at all times and in all ways. When we need wisdom, all we need to do is ask and God will provide.
When we open ourselves us to receive the lavish love God longs to give us, we become full to overflowing so we can love others lavishly. We need to remember that God is makes it possible for groups of people who look and think differently to be unified and to serve Him together…if we let Him.
So, in addition to being overwhelmed with the scope of the task and our inabilities, may we all also be overwhelmed with God’s gifts of grace and His ability to do the impossible.
Prayer: Gracious God, we claim all these promises in the mighty name of Jesus and pray them over each delegate as they faithfully serve you. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
