God use me

  1. Thank you so much for being candid, Sherry. To be honest, I use to feel that way, too. Growing up I was the good church girl. I’ve had things happen to me that were hard, but when I first became a Christian, (really accepted Christ as a savior not just what we did on Sundays) I struggled to see my own sin because I didn’t have a brightly checkered past. I knew all had sinned, but I couldn’t see specific examples in my life that I needed to ask forgiveness for. Looking back, I was very judgemental of others. I’m sure there’s more, but that’s the one that jumps out at me. I struggled to get anything out of the sermons on Sundays because it felt like the pastor was talking to the people who weren’t good church girls – and there were a lot of them (at least that was my thought process). I’ve come along way since then, but God didn’t change. The message the pastors preach didn’t change. My heart changed. I guess I grew up in Christ.

    Anyways, I love that you point out that God can use the good and the bad. We are all sinners, but we don’t have to be Rahab, we can be Esther. And Ruth didn’t look at Naiomi and tell her to stop whining, she loved and respected her. There are lessons we can learn from all of the people in the Bible. Just like God can use each and every person today.

  2. I love your honesty, Sherry. I wonder if God uses people to reach those who are like them. Someone who has lived in sin in the past can’t relate to the lifelong church girl, and the lifelong church girl can’t relate to living with a tainted past. Church girls struggle too, and we need each other to keep us walking in faith all of our lives. Keeping the saved is just as important as reaching the lost and I think this is what we lifers are used for.
