Major Ian Thomas was a friend of mine and a great Bible teacher. He imagined Moses saying something like this when he saw the burning bush in the wilderness: “Would you look at that bush? It just keeps on burning for God. I wish my life could burn for God like that and keep on burning.”
Then, Major Thomas imagined God responding, “Moses, you think this bush is a wonderful bush? Moses, you see that bush over there? I could do the same thing with that bush. Or do you see that bush over there? I could do the same thing with that bush. Moses, it’s not the bush—it's God in the bush. Any old bush will do.”
Isn’t that right? Sometimes we see a Christian who seems to have it all together and say, “Oh, what a wonderful servant of God he is. I wish I could be a servant of God like that. Look what he’s doing for God.” And God responds, “It’s not what he’s doing. It’s what I am doing in him. Any old bush will do!”
Philippians 1:6 says, "Being confident of this very thing, that He which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.""
