It is good to remember that God has not left Himself without a witness in our spirits, that despite all of the wanderings of our footsteps, despite all of the ways by which we have sought to circumvent his truth within us, despite all of the weaknesses of spirit and of mind and of resoluteness of body, despite all of the blunders by which we have isolated ourselves from our fellows and proven unworthy of the love and the trust and the confidence by which again and again our faltering lives are surrounded, despite all of this, it is good to remember that God has not left Himself without a witness in our lives.
I call them Kingdom workers. These are people we meet in life whose lives bear witness to the sovereignty of a loving God who rules the universe. These are they who follow Saint Paul’s admonition to be “imitators of Christ.” This is our true role in life. Thankfully, a patience God waits for us to become our true selves.
