Me - An Example!
Because of my chains most of the brothers and sisters have become confident in The Lord and dare all the more to proclaim the gospel without fear. Phil. 1:14
Do we ever stop to think that God might be using us for an example? Or do we dwell on our circumstances? I think I dwell!
Life is not perfect or easy. We want both. We must be ready to be used by God for His Glory, not our comfort. Paul wrote the above verse in jail. You may feel like you are in a type of jail, but remember wherever you are, God is there too. We must accept what He has for us and make the lemonade. (I really don’t like the old life to lemonade example, but God didn’t promise an easy life, just a complete life in Him.)
Jesus was the perfect example. God does not expect perfection, just a willingness to do His Will and glorify His name. I’ll be praying for you. Please pray for me.
