At the beginning of my sermon this past Sunday, I said that we limit God (that is, we, the hands and feet of Jesus, limit God’s work in the world).
That’s a sobering reality.
I’m sure there are many ways we limit God’s work in the world. I talked about four ways in my introduction on Sunday …
- Lack of surrender
- Lack of faith
- Lack of obedience
- Lack of growth
You can probably add other ways we limit God to the list.
When we’re not living fully surrendered to God or exercising our faith, when we’re not doing what we know to do or following the Spirit’s promptings, and when we’re not growing as disciples of Jesus Christ, we are limiting God’s work in us and the people and world around us.
What would it look like if we fully surrendered our lives to God, became full of faith, obeyed God’s Word and Spirit, and continually grew deeper in Christ?
