naked

Posted by slykwyk on September 8, 2009

This past Sunday I told the story of a naked man in the Bible.  A crazy naked man.  The story was out of Luke 8.  I won’t go into details but the main point of the message was this…

God not only wants to work IN us but THROUGH us.

Too many of us are more interested in God working in our lives – give me more knowledge, give me more details, give me more answers, give me more meat, give me more life.  Give me, give me, give me.  Reminds me of my kids!  The deal is God does want to work IN us, but I think he really wants to work THROUGH us.

How are we using what is IN us to impact the world around us?  If God really is working in our lives, then he wants to work THROUGH us to change the world.  You might know a lot about the Bible, but do you know how to live it out in your life?  Do you know how to impact someone who is hurting, someone who is under resourced, someone who has needs?

God used the naked man to impact his community.  Jesus not only worked IN the naked man but THROUGH him to impact the people he lived with.

Where are you?
