A Parked Car

‘God doesn’t steer a parked car.’ A stationary car is going nowhere and doing nothing. When the car is moving it can take the driver from A to B and cruise along beautiful countryside. It was designed to go places and so are we.

God created us to be active as much as our health and strength will allow. As Christians we are not Christians for our own sake, but to share the wonderful news with others. Jesus said in Matthew 28:19 ‘Therefore go and make disciples of all nations.’

In our activity we need to be steered and directed by God. We don’t make a very good job of deciding our own direction. God alone knows the thrills and holy adventures that await us. But we need to get moving.
