“I recently considered my life WITHOUT God. As we began to discuss stewardship in the stewardship committee many weeks ago, our Lord brought to my mind this thought. Wyatt, what would your life be like without Me?
“I have pondered this. What if I had never been blessed to see an answered prayer? What if I had never worshiped at the sight of a cloud-enhanced sunset? What if I had never witnessed a healing that can only be explained as a miracle? What if I had never been moved by reading His sacred word that has been passed from generation to generation? As I contemplated these questions, and many similar, I began to realize fresh and new that God, as blessed by His Son Jesus, has made all the difference in my life.
“Without God, without Jesus, without the Holy Spirit, my life would be wretched indeed! Without the Godhead in my life, I would have no purpose! Without Their presence I would have no comfort! Without grace I would be condemned!
“So, what is stewardship? I believe stewardship is my all-encompassing, all-inclusive response to a great and gracious God who has blessed me beyond imagination with the riches of His glory and grace and has prepared for me a mansion for that day! What will be my response to my God who has given me everything?”
