God can do things anyway He desires. For instance, He could have caused the walls of Jericho to fall and crumble with one word from His mouth. But instead, He got His people involved. He required that His people stand up and engage in the process. His people had to stand up and walk or nothing would have happened. God’s people had to take real steps of faith.
As followers of Christ, we see this same call on our lives. Jesus tells His disciples to follow Him. He tells us to step out of the boat. He tells us to take up our cross and follow Him. We are called to GO; not sit, not observe, but GO! God wants us to be involved in His kingdom coming to earth. He wants us to be active participants. This is a mandate to us just like the Israelites were commanded to get up and walk around the city of Jericho.
Let’s get involved. Let’s be active participants in God’s kingdom plans.
