So go out there and be a Christ Clone today!
Next week, come back to read more about the “help” that God gives us.
Those were the last two lines from my post last week. Click here to read it in its entirety.
All week long I have been pondering the “help” to which I was referring.
I came up with a few types of help that God is able to give us.
But before those are explained, I want to consider the source. So if you are really wanting to know more about getting help from God, hang on. It will have to wait until next week.
Have you ever been to Lake Itasca?
Having lived in Minnesota for 18 years, I know where it is. In fact, I have been there.
Maybe this picture will help.
Just a couple hours northwest of the Twin Cities, Lake Itasca is one of the normal 10,000+ lakes in Minnesota.
But what is note-worthy is what it contains.
The Mississippi River starts out of Lake Itasca.
This unremarkable waterway begins the journey of thousands of miles. The Mississippi eventually drains into the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean.
Such a powerful force has an average start.
I have walked across those rocks. It really doesn’t feel that special. But it is.
And it starts in an unassuming manner.
God desires to help us. If you are unsure of this, check out Psalm 23 and 121.
Again, how that help actually arrives to meet us is for another post.
Consider the source. Consider where the help actually starts.
Read John 3:16 with this author’s emphasis and edits:
For God – the greatest Person
so loved – the greatest Action
the world – the greatest Audience
that He gave – the greatest Verb
his only son – the greatest Sacrifice
and whoever – the greatest Opportunity
believes – the greatest Choice
in Him – the greatest Focus
shall not perish – the greatest Promise
but have eternal life. – the greatest Gift
God is an unending, unselfish, and overly generous source of help. Tap into Him today.
If (or when) you feel like a trickling stream that is going nowhere, consider the source.
God might just be pouring into you the makings of a raging river.
Next week, please come back to read about the first type of help God makes available for us.
