Tuesday’s Column: Dale Mail
You know what I hate? Running out of paper towels. You spill a drink all over the floor and you run to grab some but there’s nothing but a roll on the dispenser.
You know, God can only use you if you’re wrapped in Him. Without God life has no point. We hear things like “let God use you!” Or “Serve God!” Or “Love God!” But why should you? That sounds like a terrible question to ask, but let’s think about this. Why should you serve God? Let’s take a minute to look at who God really is, and why we should love Him so much.
First of all, God is not cruel. God has had you in mind since the beginning (Ephesians 2:10).
God can turn the ordinary into the extraordinary (2 Cor. 5:17).
God can give you spiritual sight so you can make sense of this world.
God can make things a little easier. He can help you lose your load of sin. He can help you worry and stress less.
God can give you family.
God can offer you the best retirement plan. If this sounds good to you, God’s looking for someone to give that to— a special kind of person.
He’s looking for the seeking
He’s looking for the struggling
He’s looking for the simple.
He’s looking for the sinner.
He’s looking for the sincere.
The more we come to know God, the more we will fall in love with who He is. No matter what your spiritual state may be, pursue His presence and your life will be more blessed because of it.
“For the LORD is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations.“
– Psalm 100:5
