Daily Nugget


Friday, January 20th, 2012.



Today's cherished Nugget from guest blogger Pastor Bill.


Habitat for Humanity started officially in 1976, but it began unofficially when founder Millard Fuller went to Zaire with a church group to build not-for-profit houses in 1968. With a beginning undergirded with little except prayer and vision for what God could do, Habitat has grown into one of the nation’s largest home builders. Fuller describes Habitat as an “alive, dynamic, Christ-centered movement” that welcomes Christians and non-Christians to participate in building houses for the poor. Fuller takes special delight when people listen to the message behind the sweat, nails, and saws. Recently, he returned to the sight of a Jimmy Carter Work Project in Charlotte, N.C. He spotted a five-year-old boy playing in the yard of the house that Carter had helped build. After Fuller complimented the boy on his beautiful home, he asked him who built it, expecting to hear the boy say, “Jimmy Carter.” Instead, the boy said, “Jesus built my house.”

The young man "got it." The most important thing is not who we are, but whose we are. The apostle Paul give us this advice in 2 Corinthians 3:2-3,
“Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men: manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart.”
"God, let others see You in all we do.
Amen."


Bro. Bill

Give Him glory daily.
