“In a large house there are articles not only of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay; some are for special purposes and some for common use. Those who cleanse themselves from the latter will be instruments for special purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work” – (2 Tim 2:20-21)
Every creation of God (living or non-living) has a purpose tofulfil. Take the Sun for example; it is created by God to aid life on earth, though it is a great distance from earth. In fact, life on earth would be impossible without the sun fulfilling it’s purpose. Likewise, even though crude oil is some kilometres beneath sea level, the world today most certainly come to a standstill without the resources generated from it.
If these things which are mentioned above, which are miles away from mankind’s abode have positive impact on our everyday life, how much more you. Created in God’s very own image! Be aware and understand that everyone born again has a mandate and a function, and therefore a gift. Your gift is according to your function, according to your mandate. God saved you for a purpose, He ordained you to be groomed and nurtured in a particular church; therein is a function and a gift for you.
Have you discovered what your gift is? Are you using it to fulfil your God given purpose secularly and spiritually? Nicholas Herman (picture above) discovered the presence of God whilst serving in the kitchen (washing dishes) doing seemingly a mundane task. The wisdom he acquired whilst serving as a kitchen help, attracted many from across the globe to seek spiritual counsel from him. God has record of every service rendered to Him from the heart; no matter how insignificant it may appear in the earthly realm.
Have you done anything lately to progress God’s mission on earth? If so with what heart of service did you do it? Remember, man may look at the outward, but God our Rewarder, looks at the heart.
Prayer: Lord You have created me for a purpose, take me from where I am into what you have created me to be. Help me to be alert in You and Your will and plan for my life. Help me to fulfil the destiny You have prepared fore me in Jesus name.
