Word-filled Wednesdays

Print
6 So he answered and said to me:
      “ This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel:
      ‘ Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’
      Says the LORD of hosts."
                   
      ~ Zechariah 4.6


At the beginning of chapter 4, Zechariah receives a vision from God for rebuilding the Temple through Zerubbabel.  The vision includes 2 olive trees that continually fill the oil lamp.  God informs Zechariah in verse 6 that it is He who is filling the lamp.  He, God, will complete His work.

Flash forward to early first century.  In Matthew 28, Jesus commissions His followers to "go and make disciples."  This is His will; He commands us to do this.  How will this be accomplished?  God will provide, God will complete His work, using people who believe and obey.

Lord, give me the words, actions, and love to show Your Love to all the people I meet.  Amen.
