So, no part of my life belongs to me, not even the most intimate area. There is no location, situation, relationship, or dimension of my life that belongs to me. Everything I have and everything I am belongs to the Lord. It is all his for the using.
This means that I have been brought into relationship with God not only so that I could be rescued from myself, but so that I may be part of God’s rescue of others. My life exists for his purposes, and I was given life and breath to help maximize the glory of Another. This is why life is ministry.
Broken-Down House, Paul David Tripp, p. 196.
