On behalf of Soul Sister, Irene Szymczak….
We are each His beautiful vessel, called to pour out the light and love of Christ; therefore, WE GO...
“And whatever you do [no matter what it is] in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus and in [dependence upon] His Person, giving praise to God the Father through Him."- Colossians 3:17 AMPC
Like many of you, I’ve known Jesus for as long as I can remember. I had a Godly grandmother who lived with us, and from the time my little preemie self came home from the neo-natal ICU (an incubator and extra nurses, back in 1954!), my mom was already pregnant. No one had expected me to live. Surprise!!!
My grandmother, the widow of a Baptist minister, moved in with my family and kept me to herself most of the time, reading to me from her worn Bible and listening to the Moody Bible Institute of Chicago. She taught me to read using the Bible and, for that reason and because it has ALWAYS been a part of me, I love the word of God… it was all I’d ever known until David, Ann and Spot came into my life in first grade.
I have not been to any seminary nor have I even taken any major writing classes. I surely haven’t kept myself in Bible studying for all of 65 years of life. I have been steered by friendships, jobs, horses and sports many times, but the love of God and His Word never left my heart.
Now, much to my surprise, He’s seen fit to ask me to give back what He’s given me. They say our talent is our gift from God, and what we do with it is our gift to Him. So, every single morning, even on vacation, He and I work together to post His Word through my words on Facebook. It’s amazing. It totally glorifies and magnifies HIS love that He’d use such a one as ME to share His love with others!!!
In Christian living, whether small or large, let’s do it all in the name of Christ for the glory of God. That’s our calling.
