We were all created with a purpose and a plan. God gave us the gift of grace. He prepared good works for us beforehand that we should walk in them. Created for good works – prepared beforehand for us. (Ephesians 2:8-10) That’s why God says in the Old Testament – HE has plans for US. (Jeremiah 29:11)
For the gifts and calling of God are irrevocable. (Romans 11:29) I believe everyone is to use his or her spiritual gifts within the body of Christ to serve one another and build a Christ-centered community. (Romans 12:6-8) God is the Great Gift Giver; his gifts bless us with joy, bless the family, builds up the church and glorifies God. God wants the church to operate as a unified community of servants, with men and women exercising their spiritual gifts for the benefit of one another and His Glory.
He knitted us together before we were born. (Psalms 139:13-14) He formed us with gifts, personalities, talents, and skills. These are all important parts of who we are and how we fit into God’s plans. Infused with a unique personality that in combination with our experiences and choices make each of us malleable in God’s hands.
2 Corinthians 13:5 tells us to examine ourselves. Test yourselves, that Jesus is within us – unless we fail to meet the test. I invite you to take the opportunity to do just that.
