Sometimes I think that the world revolves around me. I know it doesn’t, but sometimes it’s fun to think about. What if your life was really just a test, to see how well you performed in regard to letting God take over your life? What if everyone else was walking around on this earth as mere props for your life, to aide in testing you on how well you allowed the will of God to direct your life?
It’s you and God, and everyone else is an accomplice on the behalf of either the devil, or God. Keep in mind that this life is real, your decisions affect people. The world, in fact, really doesn’t revolve around you, but in some instances it’s healthy to put it in that perspective. Especially when you are faced with decisions that seem like the world is against you and God is the only one that is for you.
Today I was reading in Mark, which is a book that I’ve been focusing on lately. In the last few days I’ve been pretty good about posting a blog about what I’ve been reading. In Mark 12 Jesus talks about the parable of the tenants. The vineyard owner (God) sent multiple servants to collect from the fruit of the vineyard (prophets saving souls for heaven?). The tenants of the vineyard killed or beat each one of the servants, even the owners only begotten son (Jesus).
The point of the parable that really stuck out to me today was the fact that there were only a few servants. Out of the BILLIONS of people that have come and gone through this earth there were only a few servants (prophets) that were sent directly from God. Are you one of those selected few?
I’m not asking if God has called you to be a prophet, because that can get biblically tricky whether there are supposed to be any more from here on out. But I am asking you to value the call on your life. Is it so great that you could potentially be one of the selected few out of the billions that have come through this earth? I think there is definitely some influence that we have on how impactful our own life is.
God calls each and every one of us (Matthew 28:18-20) to live a life as the disciples did. What are you going to do about it?
