It’s not about You

“How beautiful on the mountains
are the feet of those who bring good news,
who proclaim peace,
who bring good tidings,
who proclaim salvation…” Isaiah 52:7

One of the biggest misconceptions about being a Christian is that it is all about you becoming a better person (i.e. sinning less, doing good things). Neither of those things are bad. In fact they’re great but to make that the focus is making you the focus.

Let me burst your bubble – it’s not all about you. 

It is about God and how He does great things through you and for you. You were meant to be an ambassador for God. To be His joy and peace and strength and gentleness and beauty to a world desperate for Him. So sinning less is not about you being a better person, but about you being a better conduit of God’s love and grace. 

Whatever you know about God’s character, be that for somebody today. Share with someone who is struggling with not being enough, that they don’t have to be because God is enough. That is good news!
