Doing good things—God things—is not a matter of choosing to do them, it’s a matter of surrendering to God’s will for our lives, and allowing Him to work through us. And, if there is any glory to be attained, it should be His, not ours. When we understand God’s love, and realize that all he requires of us is to love Him, we will be in His will, and all we are and do will have His love at its core. We will then be—as He created us—in His image.

If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing. 1 Corinthians 13:3

It Is That Simple

Many times, we have difficulty following God and becoming who He intends for us to be because we think we have to do things to impress Him. I’m convinced all God wants us to do is love Him, and when we love Him it opens our hearts so He’s able to fill us with His love and we can accomplish our part of His plan.

Many of you are probably shaking your heads and saying, “It’s just not that simple”. I think it is. I believe we can be so full of love for God we won’t be able to get enough of Him. With each passing day, we will seek more, trust more, and do more for God. Not because we choose to, but because the love of God within us, given to us when we received His grace, causes us to.
