I know I’ve been put on this planet to make God famous.
In fact, I believe we all have. With every expression of Himself though us, God wants to be made known. So I want people to know what He’s done in my past and is doing in my present to glorify Himself. I’ll never forget when a high school friend of mine and later sorority sister, said to me in college, “What’s happened to you since high school? You are a totally different ‘Lisa’ than the one I knew a few years ago.” He’s a transformational God, who never gives up on us even when we may want Him to. He never stops pursuing us, even when were sick of being wooed. He’s desperate for us to be taken by Him so that He can use us to take the world for Him.
When I speak to groups, my desire is to let the listening audience know that just like them, I don’t have it all together and never will. But by the amazing grace of Jesus, He wants to us me, use US, to change the world – to show people that there’s nothing they can do to escape His radical love, that His end goal is Himself and His glory, not ours, and that we’ve been put here on this planet, right where we are, to make Him famous.
Will you join me?
