You might be surprised to know the difference your life makes, and you probably have no idea how others are impacted by the discipline of your lifestyle. In spiritual terms the integrity you carry influences others strongly, placing you among the prominent whose influence shapes the community.
God’s creation unfolds today, appearing to you, and through you; the Gospel of His Son unfolds today, spoken to you, through you. The working of miracles unfolds today, hinged upon your obedience to carry the miracle message. Temptation rises to resist you, such as is common to man; but what you build today will not be common—you are building an uncommon house.
Therefore, we pray, Lord… we consecrate our lives for purposes beyond what we can imagine and greater than ourselves; we declare today the beginning of some things, and the end of some other things; a continuous moving from the beginning of something and carrying it to its completion – an uncommon house! It’s time.
Amen, so be it.
