GOD SPOKE
There have been a few times in my life that God spoke in an almost audible voice to me. One such time happened this summer.
A friend e-mailed me and said he had decided not to participate in a mission project because the people we helped had not taken care of what we had done in the past. You could tell it truly bothered him.
I began praying about that because I realized there was a part of me that wondered about that sometimes too. Why do we do this? Does it really make a difference? What if they don’t take care of the property? Should we help anyway?
God spoke very clearly to my heart and said, “I sent the world my very best, my son, and the world totally trashed him, but His witness lives on forever.”
That was the answer. When we help someone, it is our witness that will live on. No one can touch that or change that. The property will eventually deteriorate, but the witness, the witness lives on forever. That is what our God asks of us. That is what our God did for us. Thank goodness God didn’t decide not to send Jesus because “the world was just going to trash him anyway”.
