I am not satisfied. I am not satisfied with serving and only helping myself. I am not satisfied to move about life with no purpose, no intention. I am not satisfied to sit back, watch the hungry starve, and watch the thirsty go without water. I am not satisfied with watching myself see a need, time after time on God’s earth, and ignore the problem (Romans 12:9-21).
I am tired of thinking, “Someone else will do it! One day when I am older, some day when I have more money, and some day I’ll get there!”
My friends, I am not satisfied.
I am not satisfied in conforming to the ways of the Western culture (Romans 12:2). I am an American and I will always be forever grateful that God gave me the privilege and the honor of living in this great nation, but I am not satisfied in living the average day of an American (Philippians 3:20).
My friends, we were made for something more! We were not made to just get up, go to work, come home, watch T.V., sleep, and repeat. My friends, that is the work of the Enemy. The Enemy wishes for us to live in a shell, to quiet the voice that prompts our hearts and tells us there is something more.
My friends, I know we were not all made to be missionaries, and we weren’t all made to be doctors, teachers, or accountants either, but we are all called and created to be ambassadors of Christ (Romans 12:3-8). Though your mission may not be in a distant country, you do have a mission right here and now (2 Corinthians 5:16-21).
You have a calling that God has placed on your life (Romans 8:29-30), and it will not happen if you continue to hide. It will not happen if you keep Jesus only for yourself and not share Him with those around you.
My friends, we are only here for a little while, and then we are gone (Psalm 90:12). God has entrusted us with a message. Will we deliver it or will we keep it to ourselves?
After all, it’s not about me and it’s not about you (2 Corinthians 5:14-15).
