Living in the middle is where transformation occurs as we actively live out lives that reflect the God we serve. Our identity is now in Him, not in our circumstances. We see his fingerprints all over our circumstances. He is in the waiting.
Jesus sets a perfect example of being a servant leader. He knew who He was. He came from God. He was going back to God. Knowing both, He got up and served.
If we are creative, we can do authentic ministry from a distance, practicing spiritual connecting even while social distancing.
We can let our pain fool us into believing we are the only ones who have suffered. Or we can let it soften us and make us more open to others. We can let it make us more aware of what others need from us–and decide to respond in offering what we can.
