The Person That God Uses-Part 10

June 30, 2015

 

A person that God will use is a person who realizes the vain things in the world are nothing but a distraction from Christ who’s everything. My friend, turn you eyes upon Jesus, look full in His wonderful face and the things on earth grow strangely dim in the light of His glory and grace. Are you a person who fears God? Are you a person who lives in awe of God? Do you reverence who He is? 

My friend, Jesus went to the cross for you and me. His shed blood covers all of our sin and we have been declared righteous. God sees us inside of Christ and Christ in us by the Holy Spirit. You see too often, instead of us having a fear of God, we have a fear of man, and listen, my friend, if you are afraid of people, of being rejected, laughed at, or even misunderstood, then you cannot be a person that God uses. We must die daily to this world and this world’s system and surrender all that we are and all that we have to God, entrusting our spirit to His Spirit, and when we live this way we will be a person that God can use.
