Knowing that I'm expanding the kingdom of God in all that I do. Whether its cleaning up the database, encouraging a brother or sister in Christ, or even just making coffee, its all part of the glorious butterfly effect of redemption.
“If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you.” --Romans 8:11 (ESV)
In the film, It's a Wonderful Life, the story explores how much of an impact one person--regardless how big or small--can impact the lives of so many just by being there. When there's one less George Bailey in the world, future war heroes drown for lack of a rescuer, families that should be thriving are broken, and a Bedford Falls becomes a Potterville. That's why I do what I do, to make sure every George and Georgia Bailey gets that chance.
