Have you noticed that over-the-counter medicines list two kinds of ingredients: active and inactive. If you want to find the real medicine that you hope will counteract your ailment you find the active ingredients list. I suppose the inactive ingredients are there to carry the active ones into your system and to provide some color and some bulk to the product. As children of God, we also have active and inactive ingredients. When it comes to making a difference for the Kingdom, our active ingredient is the Lord, Himself and He lives within us. At times I feel like a medicine pill that is all inactive ingredients. But it is good to be reminded that He lives within! 1 Corinthians 3:16 tells us: "Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?"
