No Big Deal!

“For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.” (Romans 12:3) Ingrained in a passage that deals with what we are to do as a result of the Gospel, Paul has urged all believers to surrender our all to become a continual sacrifice, allowing God to use us according to His plan. For some, God will use in the spotlight while others will serve in the shadows. What is the reason that God puts some in the more noticeable positions and others behind the scenes? Does it really matter what the reason? Each position is equally important in the plan of God and the ability to do what God has called each to do comes as God works through yielded lives. So don’t go all “big-headed” but instead realize that it is Christ in you! He alone is to be worshiped! The greatest danger to the work of God is when we think we are so important that God needs us. God doesn’t want something great from us. He wants our surrendered lives. (a play on a quote by C.S. Lewis)
