God’s kingdom has many citizens. We are scattered throughout the earth, placed as His chosen representatives and stewards. Your life matters to God. Your leadership matters to God. Your servant attitude matters to God. And it matters to those around you. This doesn’t mean that all will go smoothly or turn out well. In the context of brokenness, God ministers deeply to and through us, causing us to reflect His presence and purpose. And so, Paul writes:
Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose. – Philippians 2:12-13
Prayer: God, I look to You. You know Your purpose for me in this time and place. Align me with Your perspective on life. Lead me to will and act as a citizen of Your kingdom. In Jesus’ name, amen.
