Be Used

Normally I wouldn't share two devotional posts in a row.  But this morning as I flipped my daily calendar to the April 13 date and read Max Lucado's update for today, I changed my philosophy.  This is an excerpt from his book, Come Thirsty.

"I do not live anymore--it is Christ who lives in me."  Galatians 2:20

You have leaves to rake.  A steering wheel to grip.  A neighbor's hand to shake.  Simply put, you have things to do.

So does God.  Babies need hugs.  Children need good-night tucks.  AIDS orphans need homes.  Stressed-out executives need hope.  God has work to do.  And he uses our hands to do it.  What the hand is to the glove, the Spirit is to the Christian.... 

God gets into us.  At times, imperceptibility.  Other times, disruptively.  God gets his fingers into our lives, inch by inch, reclaiming the territory that is rightfully his.  Your tongue...your feet...your mind...your eyes, face, and hands.  Through them he will weep, smile, and touch.

How about you? 

Have you allowed yourself to be Be Used today?
