In his book Sun Stand Still author Steven Furtick says “God has to work in us before he can work through us” (82). So what is God doing in you? What is God doing in me? Most of us want our lives to matter. We want to do great things for God. But before taking on the world we need to take on ourselves. What addiction needs to be addressed? What besetting sin needs to be conquered? What relationships need to be restored? When others look at our lives do they want what we have? If they don’t it makes it very hard to convince them to consider Christ. There should be a peace “that passes understanding” in our lives. There should be gracious compassion. There should be unflinching truth telling. Do others see Jesus in you? If yes, then God will begin to use you powerfully.
