God gives what pleases Him, not what glorifies us!

1 Peter 4:10

What we need to understand in this journey, is that we are stewards of life, not owners! All of life belongs to God! When we call life ours, we are totally re-writing reality. We are disagreeing with the simple truth that we are stewards! God is a God who has given to each according to what He wanted (1 Peter 4:10). In the story, we have been given something that we didn't create, earn and don't even own. It's a temporary holding and we are managers. The trouble is that we want more! Not for the glory of God, we want more for our glory! Well, God almighty gave each one of us what He wanted us to have for His glory and for His purposes. God gives what pleases Him, not what glorifies us! 

You see, God doesn't compare what He gave us to what He gave others, and we shouldn't compare what we've been given either. Our purpose isn't their purpose! So the question is what will we do with what we have in the short time we have before we offer it back? -Dr. Drew Shofner

God doesn't call the qualified, He qualifies the called!

God doesn't call the qualified

There is a race that God has marked out for you, and it is a run to glory! You have to choose to get off of the easy chair and out of the lazy boy; off the couch and run the race marked out for you! Your race isn’t somebody else’s race, your gifts aren’t somebody else’s gifts, your call isn’t somebody else’s call!

It is very personalized by an amazing God who ponders the thoughts of six billion people and calls each one of us into a life that is choice based, spirit driven and Christ revealing. We are called to grow as individuals, we are called to grow as a church. Our growth, His Glory! Do you get it? -Dr. Drew Shofner
