“Will you pick me up?”, the little voice asked. It was a busy Sunday morning in a new church. But somehow this little girl had found the number to my office and had, all by herself, called to ask for someone to pick her up. She REALLY wanted to come to church. Who could do it? Everyone I could think of needed to be somewhere else. So I jumped in my car and headed for her house.
She was a broken little girl. Her daddy had left when she was still young, leaving her feeling unwanted and worthless. So eager for attention, she did a lot to try to gain people’s approval, but it only pushed her peers away. Over and over again, she stumbled through life, from one mistake to another. But God sent Sunday School teachers, small group leaders, preteen leaders, game leaders, and other people to speak into that little girl over the next ten years.
Through them, God got a hold of that life – and that life was transformed. This little girl is now a mother of five children, married to a godly husband, AND they are about to head to the mission field of Japan. A life that was changed…
That’s what God calls us to do as the Body of Christ. No one person is to do it all. But every person who is a Christian has a role to play. So…what role will you take in the coming year? Will you make room in your life so that you HAVE time to serve? Will you take a step to do something new and different, maybe even outside of your comfort zone? Or will you let the year go by, with much of life lived, but nothing to show for the Kingdom? What will you do to make a difference for eternity this next year?
