To recap, we’re all being sent on a great mission. And if we don’t reach out to those in need while mercy is still available for all, millions who could come to know the mercy of God will not.
As stewards of the rich heritage that is truth and life, we will absolutely be held accountable for such a tragedy. How will we answer God upon our judgment when our reason for not being more hospitable, courageous, or evangelical amounts to frequent Instagram scrolling and Downton Abbey binges?
Trust me, I’m a cracked vessel myself. No perfect human is typing these words, please be assured of that much. But, that’s precisely my point.
We don’t need to be perfect, our families don’t need to be perfect, and our homes don’t need to be perfect for God to use us for His glory. God is awesome at taking the imperfect people, imperfect families, and imperfect homes, and using them to build up His perfect Kingdom.
So, no, you don’t need to be perfect to help build up a perfect kingdom. You don’t need to be perfect to be an inspiration. You don’t need to be perfect to direct others to the One who is.
Next up, why we need to step out of our comfort zones if we want to truly serve others at full capacity, and I’ll link to an awesome story of what happened when one girl did this recently…
Until then, let’s go and live mercifully!
