How much fun is it to get an invite?! I get super giddy when I get invited to a party, a wedding or a baby shower. It means that the sender and I are close enough for them to think of me and desire for me to be a part of a special occasion. That is how God feels about us!
He loves us.
He thinks about us.
He wants us to be a part of what He is doing.
That makes me feel ALL kinds of special! He is the creator of the universe. He is all powerful and all knowing. He doesn’t need me or my help and yet He desires it.
“Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come. Now all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation, namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation. Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were making an appeal through us; we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.” 2 Corinthians 5:17-20
When we are made new and adopted by the Father, we become a part of His purpose in bringing the lost into salvation. It is His Spirit that draws men unto Himself but He uses our lives to point to Christ and glorify Him.
Have you accepted God’s invitation to partner with Him in reaching the lost?
If so, how?
