For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.
If you believe God has never spoken to you, ask yourself what you are doing that would give God reason to speak to you. Are you and God in business together in life, or are you in business for yourself, trying to “use a little God” to advance your projects?
When our lives are devoted to the will of God, he has reason to speak to us. If our lives aren’t devoted to his purposes, he still may use us for his ends if we are strategically placed. We are his creatures no matter how misguided or rebellious.
We are more likely to hear God when we can say, “I am living for one thing and one thing only—to be like Christ, to do his work and serve his people and him. My life is to bless others in the name of God.”
