I Can Do All Things Through Christ Who Strengthens Me!

Isn't it amazing how the above Scripture verse is so easily quoted and yet...

people will still say...

I don't have the gift of evangelism

I can't do it.

Maybe what you need to do is change Scripture to read...

I Can Do Some Things (That I Choose) Through Christ Who Strengthens Me!

Sad, isn't it?

It's a bit like those who sing 'I surrender all' and are not prepared to surrender anything that God is asking!!

and why does this happen...

because our society and even many churches in general are guilty of creating a "me' first society! How does the church do that? By telling everyone what God will do for "them." as opposed to telling them what we need to do "for" God!
