When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus. Acts 4:13 (NIV)
What is noteworthy about your life? What would you like to stand out about you? What would like others to think about you? What would you like to be remembered for when your life is all said and done? What would you like to be the legacy of your life? When people think about me, I would like them to think of you. I would like my life to be a bold witness for you. I would like my life to be like a light that draws others to you. I want people to know that you are living in and through my life. When my life is done, I would like it said that I knew you. I would like my life to leave a legacy based on my going and doing your will. I will have wanted to accomplish your purposes and fulfill your plans for my life. Nothing could be more noteworthy about my life than knowing and doing your will. That’s true.
How will your life become noteworthy? How will you come to know and do my will? How will you be able to accomplish my purposes and fulfill my plans for your life? How will you become my witness in the world? How will people be able to recognize that I am living in and through your life? None of these things will come by efforts. I could work myself to the bone and never ever be able to accomplish any of these things. Only you can accomplish these things in and through my life. As I come into your presence I will be changed. It is you who will change my heart, transform my mind and guide my life. You will make me able to know and do your will. As I meet with you, I will become more like you. You will give me all that I need to serve you, as I continue to meet with you. You will make me bold. You will give me strength. You will make me courageous. You make me able to do only what you could do in and through me. Apart from you I can do nothing. With you, I can do everything that you will call me to do for you. It is you that will make me a bold and bright and courageous witness in the world, of that, I am certain. That’s right. That is very good. I will certainly do what you have asked of me. I will use your life to bear fruit for my kingdom and bring glory to my name. Draw near to me now. Yes Lord, I will.
Lord, there is no place I would rather be than in your presence. There is nothing I would rather do than meet with you. In your presence, you change my heart and transform my mind. Make me to be more like you. Help me to be your witness in the world. Amen
