God’s call is not limited to apostles like Paul. Every sincere follower of Christ has been given a place in carrying out God’s purposes for our world. There is no greater joy in life than being used by God.

There is no better way to become like Jesus than to have your faith tested. How can you develop character when things go well? But when things go badly, you learn whether you have true faith or not. If you fail the test, it is not the end of the road, but rather a chance to get on the right road.

As Christians and Americans we enjoy a double portion of freedom. As Americans, we are free to say what we want, free to travel wherever we want, free to work and live wherever we want. As Christians we are free from the condemnation associated with sin and we are free from the demands of the law because it has been fulfilled for us. We are free to use all of God’s creation for His glory. We are free to enjoy the blessings God offers through this world. Paul reminds us today that though we are theoretically free to do as we please, in reality we are bound by the law of love to consider how our choices will impact those around us.

One of the biggest challenges in life is to be content in our stage of life. It has been well said, “Happiness is not having what you want. It is wanting what you have.” Nowhere is this more true than with singleness and marriage. God’s desire and expectation is that you and I would be content in Christ, whatever circumstances we find ourselves in. The Apostle Paul leads us into confrontation with one of the major social problems of our day, and that is the breakup of marriages.

The standard we use to compare ourselves matters. We judge ourselves by how we look, how smart we are, and how successful we deem ourselves to be. What about in the church?

As a follower of Jesus Christ, we are called to give Him our all. It is only when we give up the search and turn it all over to Him that we find what we were looking for all along. Dying to self can be a scary thought, but it’s the price of true happiness. Jesus submitted everything, including His fears and His friends, to the will of God. It cost Him His life. It won Him the harvest. What have you not surrendered to God? Why? Will you obey Him?

One of the glories of the church is that nobody does the same thing. Churches that try to turn out people that all dress alike, carry the same kind of notebook, speak the same kind of language, use the same version of the Bible are missing what God has in mind, because
we are all to be different, yet working together and needing one another.

The wisdom of God comes to us through the foolishness of the cross. It is a foolishness to accept a gift so great that its magnitude cannot be measured. It is a foolishness to believe that God would send His Son to live among us and then allow Him to be killed just so our sins could be forgiven. It is a foolishness to think that God would provide
each of us with the Holy Spirit living in our hearts in order to help us grow closer to Him. We are fools to believe that eternal life comes simply from our belief in Christ. And yet, the wisdom of all humanity cannot begin to comprehend the capacity of God’s love for us.
