I’ve waited too long to believe. Way too long. What can I possibly do now for God?
God uses people to change the world! People! Not saints or super humans or geniuses, but people. Crooks, creeps, lovers, and liars— He uses them all. No wagging fingers. No crossed arms. Only sweet, open arms! If you’ve ever wondered how God can use you to make a difference in the world, just look at those he’s already used and take heart. Look at the forgiveness found in those open arms and take courage.
By the way, never were those arms opened so wide as they were on the Roman cross. One arm extending back into history, the other reaching into the future. An embrace of forgiveness for anyone who’ll come. A hen gathering her chicks…a father receiving his own…a Redeemer redeeming the world!
