For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them
You are not defined by your function. Who you are is not confined to what you do. You are a difference maker.
You might be a parent, a postal worker, a painter or a pediatrician, but that is not all that you are. Elevate your perspective: you are defined by the purpose for which God has called you.
As a parent, you impact future generations. When your children become tomorrow’s leaders, the difference they make will be determined by what you do today. More than having hot dogs with the kids, you are feeding a feast to future difference makers!
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 – wiping a nose, sliding a letter through a slot, splashing color on a canvas, or making a diagnosis – 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 created to make an eternal difference.
May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. May the Lord give you eyes to see beyond the here-and-now to grasp the eternal purpose for which He created you. Walk in the good works He prepared for you in the name of the Lord Jesus!
