Really? Am I really a Super-Agent?
: a person who does business for another person
: a person or thing that causes something to happen
Thanks, Merriam Webster!
So God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them… Fill the earth and govern it. Reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, and all the animals that scurry along the ground.” Then God said, “Look! I have given you every seed-bearing plant throughout the earth and all the fruit trees for your food…..” And that is what happened. Then God looked over all he had made, and he saw that it was very good! Genesis 1:27-31 NLT, excerpts
God created us on purpose for a purpose. Even after we turned our backs on him, (See Genesis 3) He called us back.. He bridged the gap between us, and invited us to join him in the greatest rescue mission of all times. As He works to redeem the broken places of our world, He invites us to join the effort... That blows my mind. You and me…Super Agents for God?
Paul, a primary New Testament Super Agents, wrote: For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. Ephesians 2:10 NLT
