The Unseen Force

You would not be mistaken for thinking that the life of a Christian involves actively following God, but one most also remember who started the process. God moved first and that enables us to act. Looking at Paul’s description of gifts in Romans 12:1-8 and the story of Peter’s recognition of Christ as the Messiah in Matthew 16:13-20, one can see clearly that God is the source of our gifts and grants Peter the ability to recognize Christ. To harken back to some of John Wesley’s language, God breathes, so we breathe.
