Isaiah 61-64, Ephesians 5:18-e
You, Lord, are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand. Isaiah 64:8
Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. Ephesians 5:21
The beauty of the faith is that we realize it is God who shapes and molds us into something beautiful and strong. We just have to trust him to have control over our lives. Paul writes in Ephesians then that God shapes and molds us to be like him—putting others ahead of ourselves. This world fights for its “rights,” you and I are free to put others ahead of ourselves – BECAUSE God always puts us first. We can serve others because God serves us. It is a win win situation! How do I know? I look back to the cross.
