What Are You Aware Of?

Most people are more aware of the absence of God than the presence of God. Most people are more aware of the presence of sin than the evidences of grace. What a privilege and joy it is in pastoral ministry…to turn one’s attention to ways in which God is at work, because so often people are unaware of God’s work. And much of God’s work in our lives is quiet; it’s not spectacular. It’s rarely obvious to the individual, and normally it’s incremental and takes place over a lengthy period of time.
