Yes & Amen

My dad and I rode to Houston together yesterday, which meant lots of good conversation about God. Listening to my dad talk about God is one of my favorite things in the world. I wish you all could just sit and chat with him. One thing he said that I really held onto yesterday was:

“We are God’s ambassadors. We don’t come with our own message. We come with His.”

Honestly, that should make you sigh – in relief. We don’t have to figure it all out. We don’t have to come up with a plan. We just have to say yes.

God’s agenda is way better than our agenda. God’s message is way better than our message.

My dad’s words – simple and strong – were an on-time reminder that God is taking care of everything here. All we have to do is say yes.

Yes, I will.

Yes, God can.

Yes & Amen.

“For the love of Christ controls us, because we have concluded this: that one has died for all, therefore all have died; and he died for all, that those who live might no longer live for themselves but for him who for their sake died and was raised.” (2 Corinthians 5:14-15)
