Have Initiative

I was reading 2 Cor 6:1
"And working together with Him, we also urge you not to receive the grace of God in vain--"
"Mark 16:20 And they went out and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with them, and confirmed the word by the signs that followed.. . . ."

We work together with Christ. Is it possible that Christ will work with us as well as us working with Him? I am thinking that doing things for God will have Him working along with us. As we are in union with Christ we can take the initiative.

It is important for people to have initiative in doing things for God. Otherwise you are stuck.

    I believe God has given us plently guidelines in His Word as to what we should be doing. When we do things for Him in accordance with His Word, we have the Holy Spirit's help alongside us. Too many people wait for 'signs' from God to 'feed the poor', 'look after orphans', 'spread the Gospel'... etc. Use our initiative in line with God's Word for sure...
