Being part of God’s vision

‘…if we are faithless, he remains faithful, for he cannot disown himself.’ 2 Timothy 2.13

Many people wonder whether God really uses them.  After all, if we are honest, we can probably think of many reasons why God might not use us; we don’t pray very well, are not holy enough or we don’t live exemplary lives like some other people seem to do.

We all know that it is important to pray and avoid sin, but how God treats us does not depend on these things.  Paul explains in today’s verse that it is all about God’s faithfulness and not about our faithlessness.

God has a vision to see his world transformed by people like us.  In fact, he only has ‘people like us’ to bring about his transformation.  He is utterly committed to this and will remain faithful to his vision no matter what, so he will certainly use you, no matter how bad you think you are.

Rather than focus on what you think separates you from God, spend some time giving thanks to him for his vision for the people you will come across today, and offer yourself afresh to be used by him for their benefit.
