At God's Disposal


"Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done" (Lk.22:42).

For Father's Day this year, my 3 grown children got me a unique present. As most of you probably know, I spend time a lot of time in the bays of NJ, both clamming and fishing. There have been times over the years that mechanical problems have caused me to improvise to get back in to port. I now have a 1 year membership in SEA//TOW. For all you "land-lubbers" out there, SEA//TOW is the AAA of the waters. If you have a problem, you simply call them with your location and they will be there just like that AAA tow truck on land. The cool thing is that they are at your beckon call, 24 hours a day. In today's verse, Jesus is in the garden praying on the night of his betrayal and arrest. He understands what His mission is, but looks to the Father one last time to see if His life can be spared. Knowing what the answer is, Jesus utters these famous words that echo down to us through the corridors of time... "Yet not my will, but yours be done..." If we are to be fit for use by the Lord, that same credo must be ours. We belong to the Lord, and are at His disposal at all times. There are no "part-time" Christians in the Lord's kingdom, as God wants us to be much more than Sunday morning "pew sitters." We are on a constant quest to see how the Lord wants to utilize our abilities for Him. I think that the prophet Isaiah really understood this..."Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, 'Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?' And I said, 'Here I am. Send me!'" It appears to me that God wants 24 hour a day Christians at His disposal... I really hope that I don't have to use my SEA//TOW membership, but its comforting to know that they are just a phone call away.... So is God....

Have a great day.... Make your little part of the world better... Love mark Phil.4:11
