TOPIC: THE PERSON YOU WERE MADE TO BE
TEXT: Eph.2:10 “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.
God created you, and He knows what you were intended to be. He has ‘good works’ for you to do, but they’re not necessarily the kind of ‘to do’ things we put on a list for our spouses or employees. They’re signposts to your true self. Your spiritual life isn’t limited to certain devotional activities. It is about being empowered by God to become the person He envisioned when He created you. Just as nobody becomes happy because their goal is to be happy, becoming the person God intended you to be won’t happen if your focus is always on yourself. Flourishing is tied to a nobler vision; it doesn’t happen by ‘looking out for number one’. People who flourish bring blessings to others,and they do it in unexpected and humble circumstances. Catch a glimpse of the person you were made to be.
Inspirational of course! Express compassion as much as you can forgive old hurt. Live sacrificially. Only God knows your full potentials, and He’s always guiding you toward the best version of yourself. He uses many tools and He’s never in a hurry- at work producing patience. He never gets discouraged by how long it takes, and He delights every time you grow. Only God can see the ‘best version of you’, and He’s more concerned with your reaching your full potential than you are. Lord, help me to understand this nobler vision and empower me to express your kind Of compassion in my daily walk with You.
