God Gets into Our Lives

I do not live anymore – it is Christ who lives in me.” Galatians 2:20

You have leaves to rake.  A steering wheel to grip.  A neighbor’s hand to shake. Simply put, you have things to do.

So does God.  Babies need hugs.  Children need good-night tucks. AIDS orphans need homes.  Stressed-out executives need hope.  God has work to do.  And He uses our hands to do it.

What the hand is to the glove, the Holy Spirit is to the Christian . . . God gets into us.  At times, imperceptibly.  Other times, disruptively.  God get His fingers into our lives, inch by inch reclaiming the territory that is rightfully His.

Your tongue.  He claims it for His message.
Your feet.  He requisitions them for His purpose.
Your mind?  He made it and intends to use it for His glory.
Your eyes, face and hands?  Through them He will weep, smile and touch.
