Greater Things are Still to be Done…
Was listening to God of this City by Chris Tomlin this morning. Music always seems to inspire me, to stir something within me. I started thinking about the body of Christ and how many call themselves Christian yet act in a manner that doesn’t reflect Christ’s love.
The Great Disconnect
You see, we all seem to have a disconnect. We compartmentalize many areas of our life: maybe for you it’s your finances, your business, your work life, your friendships, or some other area. There are parts of our lives that we do not allow God in or allow Him to take control. For some reason, we insist that we can do a better job than God Himself at managing parts of our life! It sounds crazy, but that’s exactly what we do!
With all the problems in our world today why do so many Christians often battle with one another? With all the work that needs to be done, shouldn’t we be more concerned about helping others – feeding the poor, sharing the Gospel, showing His love, and building our communities to name a few, rather than fighting with one another?
The biggest obstacle to Christianity is often other Christians
Often, the biggest obstacle to attracting others to Christ is other Christians. That guy calls himself a Christian and acts like that? No thanks! What if we all acted in a way that reflected Christ’s character and love, wouldn’t others be more open to the Gospel?
God works in mysterious ways and is in control of everything! We certainly cannot save others, but we can provide a better example so that hearts may be opened to receive what God has in store for the people you come into contact with every day!
In the words of Chris Tomlin:
“There is no one like our God
For greater things have yet to come
And greater things are still to be done in this City
Greater thing have yet to come
And greater things are still to be done in this City”
