Participant or Spectator

I was recently listening to a message from a great pastor out of Arizona and he said something that I wanted to share as well as add to. His statement was…“God will accomplish what He wants regardless of what you do. The question is, do you want to be a part of it or not?

The first part is something we as Christians should all believe. God being sovereign means He is in control of everything. But the second is where we struggle. Not with belief, but with application.

How often do we watch the World Series, the Super Bowl or the Grammys and think “Man I wish I could do that at that level.” But most of us are stuck watching instead of participating. Witnessing a great play or the winning putt is awesome but it’s just not the same as actually doing it.

As children of God, we have the blessed opportunity to participate in the greatest victory ever. We don’t have to sit on the couch and watch. We don’t have to worry about not being good enough.

The invitation has been given. The victory WILL happen. My question to you
is…
Are you coming out to play?
