Day to day worship in our hearts
Right now, I'm in Italy with my wife and in 'lost in translation' mode for a month. So I take this time to read Eugene Cho's 'Overrated'.
"Everyone wants to change the world, but nobody wants to do the dishes."
I use this quote often jokingly, but here's a more serious quote; "Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing themselves." How true and how stubborn we continue to be, even after acknowledging this truth.
We see the world's problems in our church in Shepherd's Bush, and we ask and plead with God to move mountains for these people we want to love and serve. However, we forget that God also wants to move us. Is it possible that often than not, we are the mountains that need to be moved?
Mountains are easy to move. Hearts are difficult to move, if not impossible.
Help our unbelief!
