I don’t “have” to…

was talking to a friend the other day who recently got a girlfriend and he was telling me how he had to drive her to the airport tomorrow. as we talked i realized a recurring phrase…”i have to”. jokingly i told him, “dont be dumb, you GET to take her to the airport!”

then i realize how often i say “i have to” when it comes to ministry, which in reality is serving God. i need to realize that i GET to, because He sent Jesus to die for my sins. i GET to experience a love, joy, peace, which is beyond all comprehension. i GET to participate in His plan, not because of my abilities, but by the filling of the Holy Spirit which comes when we accept Christ.

amazing grace, how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me…
