Saying “Yes” to Jesus

At a teaching weekend in September Anthony and I were incredibly moved by the power of saying “yes” to Jesus, and the immeasurable faithfulness of God.  We do not always get to see the fruit of these yeses, but this weekend we were able to witness of glimpse of God’s bigger picture in our time of worship.  If the Meadows’ hadn’t said “yes” to God’s call to move to Wilmore, Anthony and I would never have met them and been able to be in community with them.  It is through their “yes” that Anthony and I were inspired to say our own “yes” to the call of the Spirit to work alongside them and to take what we learned to St. Louis.  And through our “yes”, members of our community are able to say their own “yes” to Jesus’ call on their lives and their children.  To be surrounded by each step of these yeses to Jesus on Sunday was such a sweet reminder of the goodness of God.  

Psalm 78:4-7 states:

“We will not hide these truths from our children;
we will tell the next generation
about the glorious deeds of the Lord,
about his power and his mighty wonders.
For he issued his laws to Jacob;
he gave his instructions to Israel.
He commanded our ancestors
to teach them to their children,
so the next generation might know them—
even the children not yet born—
and they in turn will teach their own children.
So each generation should set its hope anew on God,
not forgetting his glorious miracles
and obeying his commands.”

Each day we are given opportunities to say “yes” to Jesus, his work in us and around us.  We were reminded at the weekend that though these yeses may seem small, Jesus takes each one and compounds it for the glory of his Kingdom.  What a beautiful mystery that we are able to be part of the bigger picture of what God is doing in the world.
