God uses dumb things

Even through last few things of the year at school, through frustrations and tiredness, through making dumb statements, and through drama, God seems to use the dumb ones like me to proclaim His name.

Sometimes I just need that reminder that God isn't into using the cool, most eloquent people to declare His love to a world in need of Him. All He wants is a willing vessel, a vessel that is willing to be poured out when He pours into it.

My words don't have to flowy; they don't have to be scholarly; they don't have to be dependent on my own good works. God doesn't need me one bit, but He definitely wants me. If I have a life that is constantly seeking to do His will and live for Him, He will use that love and obedience to further His kingdom. Through being bombarded with questions of doubting one's salvation, through doubting whether Christ exists, through all kinds of questions from my students about the Bible and Jesus, God chose me to declare His salvation to them. To tell them that if one confesses with their mouth and believes in their heart that Jesus died on the cross and rose from the dead, then Christ will save them. But that also, salvation from Christ is not a right to sin even more. It's hard one minute telling a group of students how to accept Christ and turn around the other minute and tell them that salvation isn't a license to sin more. That's a hard uphill battle to climb.

But hey, who will stand up and answer those questions if I don't. When God places the opportunity in front of our faces, will we run away from the gift to share Christ, or will we stand firm and unshakable in the face of the world and share Christ unashamed to a bunch of kids who are looking for the real deal.

It is hard. It is life. And for sure as I believe this in my heart, Christ is the way, the truth, and the life. Sometimes I'm dumbfounded at how much the students are listening; and sometimes how much some are trying to avoid the truth of Christ's love for them. But God opens doors, will each of us walk through the doors and guide others through? I hope so.
