He touched my mouth with it, and said,
“See, now that this has touched your lips,
your wickedness is removed, your sin purged.”- Isaiah 6:7
God expects greater things than we can do by ourselves.
This incident tells us an important truth about how God works in and through each of us for his glory. God expects of us greater things than we can do by ourselves. When we cooperate in hisworks, we accomplish far beyond what we can do on our own.
Therese of Lisieux, a Carmelite nun who died of tuberculosis at the age of twenty-four, wrote to a friend: “Jesus has so incomprehensible a love for us that he wills that we have a share with him in the salvation of souls. He wills to do nothing without us. The Creator of the universe awaits the prayer of a poor little soul to save other souls redeemed like it at the price of all his Blood.”
