God, you made me smile tonight.
But then again, you do that quite often.
Tonight, at Bible study it was so cool to hear teens speaking out about their ideas, beliefs and sharing their struggles and moments of joy.
God, it feels like your Spirit is bringing freedom and i can see how You are moving! Wow!
And even having Hannah, play her flute… to share her talent with us.
Is church not meant to be a place, where people can come as they are, they can express themselves, we can come with our flaws… and then you say “I love you the way you are, but refuse to leave you that way.”
Can I make you in the image of my Son? Yes, please, my Father.
I just was so moved with how tonight went. Thank You!
Thank you that you would use a simple person like me to point others to You…
“What, after all, is Apollos? And what is Paul? Only servants, through whom you came to believe—as the Lord has assigned to each his task. 6 I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God has been making it grow. 7 So neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow. 8 The one who plants and the one who waters have one purpose, and they will each be rewarded according to their own labor. 9 For we are co-workers in God’s service; you are God’s field, God’s building.” (1 Corinthians 3)
And thank you for the righteousness that comes as a gift from you:
“There is no one righteous, not even one;
11 there is no one who understands;
there is no one who seeks God.
12 All have turned away,
they have together become worthless;
there is no one who does good,
not even one.”
But now apart from the law the righteousness of God has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify. 22 This righteousness is given through faith i Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile, 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. 25 God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of his blood—to be received by faith. He did this to demonstrate his righteousness, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished— 26 he did it to demonstrate his righteousness at the present time, so as to be just and the none who justifies those who have faith in Jesus.” (Romans 3)
