I have mentioned before that I do not know why we are here.
Why did God choose to send us instead of someone else who would do a better job?
I was listening to a sermon about Gideon (thanks to Dennis B.) and as he mentioned winnowing the army, Moses and his whining, and others...it hit me.
I am here because by myself I could not do all this! In this way, whatever Kingdom work gets done, God gets glorified, by me as I recognize there is no way I could do this, and as others see the Holy Spirit working in me and through the others in the mission and what happens here and realize the same thing.
Is that not really encouraging and great? I know I feel better.
