TODAY'S WORD 4U 2DAY
YOU ARE NOT JUST ANOTHER FACE IN THE CROWD (1)Ephesians 2:10
You are unique, wonderful, amazing, and magnificent. In fact you are ‘God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance … to do.’
Yes, you. Yes. You.
Right now, God’s in the business of training you up, giving you all the right equipment, knowledge, experience, understanding and people you need in your life in order for you to achieve all these good things. He’s working on your attitude, your character and thought processes.
We are saved and God ‘saved us…not because of anything we did… but because of God’s purpose…before time began’ (2 Timothy 1:9 NCV). We are wanted; God ‘…has given each of [us] a gift from His great variety…to serve one another’ (1 Peter 4:10 NLT). We have supernatural ability to help build the church, ‘A spiritual gift is given to each of us so we can help...’ (1 Corinthians 12:7 NLT). We are on a mission; Jesus said, ‘Go and make followers of all people in the world…’ (Matthew 28:19-20 NCV).
Don’t ever think your life doesn’t account for much. You’re not just another face in the crowd. Your life has value and purpose, even on the days you’re feeling useless!
If you’re up for reading an old poem, check out George Herbert’s ‘Love III’ and take in the amazing message of the depth of God’s love and mercy. Or, if you fancy watching a video on the same theme, look up the ‘Interview with God’ (www.interviewwithgodsite.com) and soak in the truths it contains.
