Rick Harris: Fools for Christ
This is the fifteenth in a series of daily Lenten devotionals by a group of Anglican bloggers and friends. Today’s entry is by Rick Harris of the Stand Firm Alabama blog. You can read other entries in the series here.
Excerpt: "Indeed. We think ourselves the better judges of what the world needs. Sometimes we even dare diagnose what is wrong with the Body of Christ, and prescribe the medicine that we are sure will cure it. We say we believe that God has a plan, but then we act as if God needs our power to protect his plan from being thwarted. We are ever so willing to serve God by those efforts that we think He needs us to make, and so unwilling to do something that doesn‘t make sense. We may just as well say, “Anything, God. I’ll do anything You ask. Just don’t make me be a fool.” We won’t give up on using our own power. And so we usurp God’s sovereignty. "
