Prodigal: I am feeling selfish today.
Me: I feel like that sometimes too.
Prodigal: What should we do?
Me: We should push through, and serve the Lord.
This is from Crazy Love by Francis Chan
“But who am I, and who are my people, that we should be able to give as generously as this? Everything comes from you, and we have given you only what comes from your hand” 1 Chron. 29:14
LUKEWARM People are continually concerned with playing it safe; they are slaves to the god of control. This focus on safe living keeps them from sacrificing and risking for God.
To see God’s glory you have to take a faith based risk. This is total trust in the Lord, and with that the Lord likes to show what He can do.
The God of Abraham, and of Isaac, and of Jacob, the God of our fathers, hath glorified his Son Jesus; whom ye delivered up, and denied him in the presence of Pilate, when he was determined to let him go.
