Our enemy, the adversary (Satan), the eternally defeated one, deeply desires for us to believe. Not in the unique, perfect, and holy God of eternal Trinity who is Father, Son, and Spirit... but that both he and God do not exist. The adversary convinces us through lies and deception, and we readily abandon ourselves unto a myriad of ultimately worthless worldly pursuits.

When the Spirit of God graciously stirs our hearts... when we call out for deliverance from our prison of sin... God immediately snatches us from the clutches of the enemy whose next line of defense is to minimize our impact.

The enemy tells us, he tells you, that our lives, efforts, and ministries are utterly insignificant. He tempts us by whispering, "Seize and squeeze the juice out of the day all for yourself! You deserve it!"

He whispers subtle yet convincing lies that our ministry efforts are "minuscule," our faith is "feeble,” and the "ordinary" life of “the mundane" isn't worth living. The crafty serpent wants us to believe we're nothing like the "real" heroes of faith in Scripture, that our existence is incomparable to the "magnificent" martyrs of history. But God Almighty says otherwise. We are the pinnacle of the Creator's creation! The King of Eternity paid for us with His own blood!

Satan sinisterly suggests, "You won't REALLY be missed in gospel fellowship today!" He encourages us to sleep in, stay home, watch the show, take a day off. He tries to convince us that our divinely given gifts, our extravagant contributions, and our joyful presence in the Body of Christ are utterly meaningless. He incessantly pesters us to play the catastrophic church game of “hide-and-seek,” skipping out on fellowship for no other reason than to see if anyone notices.

But if anyone does notice we complain about feeling "harassed." If they don't notice we wallow in the self-inflicted misery of being dismissed, deserted, or forgotten. All our attention should be on worshiping Christ rather playing games or any twisted attempts to steal His glorious spotlight.

The adversary's inheritance is eternal gloom, not glory! There's no mystery about the story's ending. The tomb is empty! The Christ is risen! He's returning soon to gather His redeemed Bride unto Himself forever!

What will you do with your redemption in Christ between now and then? Listen to the enemy's lies? Play games? Squander divine gifts purchased by the King’s blood at Calvary? Will you spend your days pursuing worthless things of the world? Or will you have an IMPACT for King Jesus and His eternal glory?

Somewhere in northern Ghana an orphanage and school were started with nothing more than a little boy's obedience in donating his modest savings for a toy...

Somewhere in eastern China a hospital for women with HIV and baby girls rescued from fields and human sex trafficking was started with a dream from a young woman once raped while on mission there…

Just like the poor widow who gave two tiny copper coins in joyful obedience abandon unto Christ, there's absolutely no limit to what God can - and will - do with your surrender... with your abandon unto Him... with your love and life poured out for Him and His eternal glory!

Like shooting stars blazing across the night's sky or like one drop of water sending ripples across a vast ocean - one simple and seemingly meaningless act of obedience unto Christ will light up the darkness and sends ripples throughout eternity!

What will your IMPACT be today?

Grace and Peace,
