GOD’S DESIRE IS TO USE YOU IN A GRAND MANNER!
“Another parable He put forth to them, saying: “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and sowed in his field, which indeed is the least of all the seeds; but when it is grown it is greater than the herbs and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and nest in its branches.” Matt.13:31-32
The idea that Jesus Christ is trying to communicate through this passage to us his admirers, and all that wish to learn at his feet, is that God desires to use every believer to spread his kingdom everywhere in a grand manner. Note the word desire in my statement above.
Friends if you are a believer you are not supposed to begin to convince God to use you. It is too late! He already desires to use you. More so, he so much desires to use you that he isn’t thinking of using you just anyhow or somehow. His desire to use you is to use you in the best possible fashion. He desires to use you to the best of your capacity, to the best of your ability and to the best of your potentials.
“If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michael Angelo painted, or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, ‘Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.” ― Martin Luther King Jr.
God’s desire is to use you in a grand manner. What about if I am just a street sweeper? If you are a street sweeper, he wants you to sweep that street in a grand manner. But I am just a cook, if you are only a cook, he wants you to be the best cook possible in town. But I am just a gardener, if you are a gardener, he wants to use you in that calling in a grand manner. He wants you to be a gardener with some innovations. A gardener with some originality. A gardener with some peculiarity. A gardener with some discoveries. A gardener in a grandiose manner.
