Good morning, Mission Dispatch friends—
I picture the image of keeping ourselves under the protection of God’s wing.
Let me say it simply, and I trust with discretion. We professional Christian workers are vulnerable to setting our skills on display—a temptation to guard against. Folks may argue the point, but even at our finest and most talented, we are of little use to our Master without Him at the helm.
From the lyrics of Martin Luther’s A Mighty Fortress is Our God...
Did we in our own strength confide
Our striving would be losing were not the right Man on our side, the Man of God’s own choosing
Dost ask who that may be?
Christ Jesus, it is He!
We who serve the King have chosen a deliberate dependence on Him who is also our steady and attentive guide. How good to delight in our need for Him. We are His and His alone. There lies our fulfillment.
