Used by God
The late Dr. Howard Hendricks had a slogan: “God uses F.A.T. people.” God uses people who are Faithful, Available, and Teachable.
God uses Faithful people, or people who are committed to Christ. The ones God uses love Him, serve Him and desire to know Him more. Is that you?
God uses Available people. These are the ones who may not “feel led” but are willing to be led by the Spirit. Available people are ones who take the step out of their comfort zone, even if it is a small step, to be used by God. Is that you?
God uses Teachable people. If you know it all then you are disqualified from service. But if you are eager to learn and can be taught and are willing to learn and gain experience, then this is the person God uses. Is that you?
None of those requirements need a Ph.D or Billy Graham’s gifts in evangelism. What is required is a heart that is postured toward being a moldable servant of God, willingness to be led by Him and a love to serve Him.
This year as we seek to GROW in Grace and knowledge, in Relationships, in Outreach and Works of service- seek to be used by God. You’ll be surprised at where He leads when we say “Here am I. Send me.” Is that you?
