CHOOSING GREATNESS

A Devotional by Pastor Tim & Jesse Towne

Welcome to the Able Church, we will be talking about choosing greatness this week. We are very fortunate in our lives to have choices in how we participate in each other’s lives. Some choices are better than others but each choice brings consequences of some sort. But did you know God offers greatness for us in exchange for us being willing to represent Him to others? Sure – we follow Jesus’ example as a servant and God will lead us into the right paths that intersects with others. Then we just follow after where the Holy Spirit directs us in our reaching out to help meet their needs and we become blessed with feelings of being used by God for eternal greatness. He leads us to those places and it’s up to us to make the right choices and walk in obedience to God. Doing so will open doors to greatness that’s so much more than settling for just ok or mediocrity.

Greatness in life is when God uses us for the purpose of affecting others lives for an eternal impact. For God to do this we have to be willing to be used and obedient to God’s leading. Our first step in following obedience and receiving blessings is to trust God. Trust sometimes just takes faith to believe that God always has our best in mind. Our tendencies are to make choices based on our selfish wants but the person who can set that aside and serve others first will find that those choices bring handsome rewards and blessings.

Ephesians 3:20 NIRV God is able to do far more than we could ever ask for or imagine. He does everything by his power that is working in us.

Think about that for a minute – its God who is able to do far more than we can picture in our minds. And its God’s desire to see that this happen for each of us. What’s the catch? We have to cooperate with God by being a willing person that follows after Him. So that means we need to build up a better relationship so we are more “tuned into” hearing His voice and then go into action.

Sounds risky? It might not always seem comfortable. Wiping someone’s noise or helping them carry their lunch tray, it’s all possible, but we have to be willing to set aside our own pride and say yes Lord.

Experiencing greatness doesn’t require super hero stuff. It just requires that we be willing and able to do those things that God asks of us. Are you ready? Roll up your sleeves and lets get to work!
