Friends, I’m so excited to invite you to the Church of the Small Things Online Bible Study with Melanie Shankle starting October 22nd. First, if you don’t already know Melanie (aka Big Mama at The Big Mama blog), you’re going to love her! She’s a Jesus-lover and Texan, with a fun down-to-earth attitude toward life, family, mothering, and the small stuff. And did I mention that she’s hilarious? She’s that funny girlfriend you wish lived next door. Speaking of… This is a study for you and for me and our friends — regular people who want to live full-out for Jesus in our regular lives. We want Him to be our everything, right?
Have you ever wished you could do something really big for Jesus? I know I have… but the life God called me to is full of small things. How about yours?
Some of us are “just” accountants who greet and welcome people to church on Sundays. Some of us are “just” doctors or nurses who dream of someday going on medical missions. Some of us are “just” stay-at-home-parents wiping noses and bottoms and trying to live on one income. Some of us are “just” paralegals. Students. Retirees. Engineers. Designers. Musicians. Executive assistants.
Yes, our hearts long to be like Jesus. Yes, we help where we can. Yes, we try every day to live Kingdom lives, but the normal, everyday life following and serving Him as best as we can seem unimportant… Mundane… Small. We may wonder Does what I do even matter?
The church of small things is where God does His best work. The church of small things is where the majority of us live every single day. ~ Melanie
For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. — Ephesians 2:10 NLT
Our life is full of small moments and small wonders that God is using in such a big way. And I think the small moments in our lives are no less holy than the big moments. Maybe it’s the small moments that are even more holy, because those are the million little pieces of our lives that God uses to make a difference right where we are. ~ Melanie
What we do matters in the Kingdom of God. What we say matters. The small things we do matter. God takes tiny things and does what only He can do with it.
Small things make a big difference.
Are you doing “just” small things? Buckle up with us and let’s dive into Scripture to see how the little things we are doing in our regular lives can make a big impact on the Kingdom and determine who we are becoming in Jesus!
