Are You Reaching Your Potential?

Saw this advertisement for the job search site, Monster.com

This ad made me think about our lives for the LORD.  Are we living up to our potential.  He created us to glorify Him.  His son died to offer forgiveness for our sins against Him.  He sent His spirit to those who turned to Him to empower them to live the life that we’d been planned to live from the beginning….

And then we hear ourselves say “I just can’t do it.”  “I can’t be like Jesus, he was perfect.”  “It’s impossible to live without sin”  “It’s hard” and so on… certainly there is truth to each of these statements – but why are we keeping out expectations so low.  I cannot stress the following verse enough:

Romans 8:31-32 – What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who is against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things?

God can and will help us!  We must stop putting ourselves in the way of what He is trying to do in us for His glory.  When we look back at our life, will we be giving the maximum glory to our God or will we still be tied up in our excuses, temptations, and the world?  Lets not waste our life.
