For it is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure.
If you and I were jerked out of the world, would we leave a noticeable hole? Would anything be missing from the world that would stand for God in Christ or His righteousness? God did not create us to merely exist. He wants to make a difference in this world through your life and mine.
You see, God made us to stand out and to stand up for Him, and He equips us with everything we need to do just that. So take time to thank God for the work He is doing in you and look for ways you can work for His good pleasure by being a blessing to others.
