God Will Do This

God Will Do This

16 March 2009


8 He will keep you strong right up to the end, and he will keep you free from all blame on the great day when our Lord Jesus Christ returns. 9 God will surely do this for you, for he always does just what he says, and he is the one who invited you into this wonderful friendship with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. (1 Corinthians 1:8-9 NLT)

Observation and Application:

God got me started on this spiritual adventure. There I was, living my life, a recently returned Viet Nam veteran who wanted to settle down and buy a house, work hard and grow my business, and build a good reputation in my small Eastern Washington town.

But God invited me into a wonderful friendship with his son Jesus Christ and that changed everything. I began to think in terms of purpose rather than purchasing power – of significance rather than success and security. Jean and I made choices that changed everything for us.

God got me started on a spiritual adventure by inviting me into a wonderful friendship with his Son Jesus Christ. The choices we’ve made through the years have kept us on the adventure path right up to today.

I don’t know what’s next or how it will all turn out, but I know God will surely do this for me because he always does just what he says, and he’s the one who invited me to the party!


Father, thanks for getting us started on what has turned out to be quite an adventure. We had no idea it would lead us where we’ve gone in the past forty years. It’s been quite a ride! I’m ready for the next episode of the great adventure, because I am confident that you always do what you say you will do. What’s next? Amen.
