The desire of every human heart is to find purpose in life. We want to know that our life counts for something more than what is usual. We long for the unusual life, with an unusual gift or ability that will change the world. Often, in our search for the instruments God has given us to use we neglect to give ourselves as an instrument for God to use. In this sermon, we learn that the only opportunity we have to be God’s instrument is the opportunity that is before us. It is rarely the opportunity we dream of or even want. Nonetheless, it is the one we are called to say yes to.
