There was this poster that said Uncle Sam Wants You.  It was a military recruiting poster for the Army.  The poster and associated posters told the story about how Uncle Sam (our country) needed us for military service….for the war. 

God has some stuff like that for us too.  He needs us.  Did you know that God has assignments for you and me.  Things that He has set aside for us to get done.  It is not that God can’t do them……well, He can’t because they are ours to do. 

Ephesians 2:10 in the NIV says it this way.  “We are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”  God has stuff for us to do.  He depends on us so much, he needs us so much, he wants us active so much that He prepared stuff for us to do.  Not only that….but He prepared these things ….   in advance, yes….you can bet well in advance….for us to do. 

S0, we are coming up on Thanksgiving this week.  I know I will be busy getting stuff ready for our big  family gathering of the Mercers in Bunnell.  I know you probably will to.  Just understand that God Himself has prepared stuff for you and me to do….. He  has, according to this scripture, prepared good works for us to do. 

Take a pause this next few days and think about what good works have been prepared, in advance, for you to do…..and do them.  Uncle Sam Wants You….God too.
