God is working through us to do great things for his Kingdom. God is using us to change lives.

Of course, he doesn’t need us to do great things. He’s not limited to our efforts. So why does he work though us? Because he is also working in us, shaping us as living stones.

If we’re not connected to God, everything we do is meaningless. Complete and absolute. Sure, he’ll still work through us, but we will miss his work in us.

We can’t forget this! We can’t neglect the care of our own hearts in the name of ministry. This is not a noble sacrifice, it’s blatant disobedience.

There’s only one Messiah in the universe, let’s not forget we need him too.
