Being and Doing

As an agent of ObeyGC2 I should concern myself not only with what I am doing, but in what I am becoming.  An agent of ObeyGC2 is a lover of God and of people.

I doubt anyone is much more eager for heaven than I am. Usually multiple times a day I use the word Maranatha (Hebrew for “Come Lord!”) with a full awareness of its meaning and intent. Around our home my wife and I say, “Now would be a really good time (for Jesus to return)” almost daily.  The Lord is leaving us here for several reasons. One is that He has specific things in mind for me to do. Probably just as importantly, He has a clear picture in mind for what He wants me to become…like Jesus. That might take a while…

Rom 8:28-29
29 For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers.

Phil 1:6
6 [I am] confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

Eph 2:10
10 For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
