The Person That God Uses-Part 3

June 19, 2015

 

John 3:3– “Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

God will take you just the way you are and He will use you. Ask Him to search your heart and He will.  God is interested most of all in the condition of the heart.

To be a person that God uses you have to be born again. This means that you have to have God resident within side of you. God changes our hearts and God changes our desires when we become new creatures in Christ Jesus. You see this is 2 Corinthians 5:17“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.”

To be a person that God uses you must be born again, born from above, a new creature in Christ Jesus, and have a responsive heart to the indwelling Holy Spirit, to God the Father through the merits of God the Son, and be willing to live a life of obedience and abiding in Him. My friend, God will take you even though you may see yourself insignificant and He will use you in a special way right where you are. So ask God to search your heart.
