- You’re not defined by your function
- you’re placed in a unique position by God Himself
- God has a divine purpose for you
- you’re created to make eternal difference
You are not defined by your function. Who you are is not confined to what you do. You are a difference maker.
You’re placed in a unique position by God: the skills, experiences, circumstances, strengths and weaknesses he has given and grown in you in order that you make a difference where you are. Not because you are highly trained, superhuman or immensely influential, but because the Lord lives in you, believes and works through you. He turns the “ordinary” little actions and prayers of our day into powerful advances of his kingdom, so that where we live and work and play and rest become places where the life of the Risen Christ can be seen and even experienced.
God told Jeremiah that He formed, called, and ordained him before he was even born. And God has a divine purpose for you! He prepared good works for you to accomplish today long before you arrived here – walk in them! When every little thing that you do is done in the name of the Lord Jesus with an attitude of gratitude, He infuses those actions with holy purpose. More than fulfilling a function, you are defined by the purpose for which God has called you: you are created to make an eternal difference.
“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.”
