“Next to the Incarnation, I know of no more staggering and humbling truth than that a sovereign God has ordained my participation.” -Elisabeth Elliot, Discipline–the glad surrender
I’m going to leave this MMM with that profound sentence and we can feast all day.
This is something I am overwhelmed by daily–that God, the supreme Lord of the universe, created us and saved us is stupefying. But not only did He draw us to Himself, give us a heart of flesh in place of our stony one and cause us to walk in His ways, He desires to use us for His kingdom.
Staggering and humbling indeed.
