What God Is Looking For In The World.

"[God is not] served by human hands, as though He needed anything, since He Himself gives to all mankind life and breath and everything." Acts 17:25

The difference between Uncle Sam and Jesus Christ is that Uncle Sam won't enlist you in his service unless you are healthy and Jesus won't enlist you unless you are sick.

What is God looking for in the world? Assistants? No. The gospel is not a help-wanted ad. It is a help-available ad. God is not looking for people to work for Him but people who let Him work mightly in and through them.
