You can do great things through the ordinary

Think you have to cause walls of water to arise from the deep, entreat fire from the heavens, or encounter the angel of the Lord of Hosts to do something great for God?

Read through the gospels again.

Notice how often ordinary things are done to create great moments for God’s glory: touching people, making time for people, talking to people, building people up, and sharing the gospel with people.

Ordinary is a relative term. Doing great things for God is determined by the God we serve when we do them. Do not forget that.

“Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’” (Matthew 25:37-40 NKJV)
