Give yourselves completely to God—every part of you—for you are back from death and you want to be tools in the hands of God, to be used for his good purposes. —Romans 6:13 TLB

God has given us so much. He enables us to see, hear, breathe. There is darkness in our world, but there is also so much light. In Jesus’ resurrection, he has brought us back from death too, and we want to be able to give back to him with the same love that he gives to us.

We want every part of us to be a tool in his hands for good purposes.

There are so many things going on right now that are bigger than our problems. God has a much bigger picture in mind, and he wants us to be part of it. The Bible says we are “created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do” (Ephesians 2:10 NIV).

If we think we don’t have the strength to do good works, that’s no problem, because God wants to work his strength through us. We have the privilege of being tools in his hands.

Food for Thought: God cheers for us to move forward in the world and bring all of ourselves to him, so that we can be used as vessels to give back to the world.
