1) Ephesians 2:10 (TLB); 2) John 17:4 (MSG)
1) It is God himself who has made us what we are and given us new lives from Christ Jesus; and long ages ago he planned that we should spend these lives in helping others. 2) I glorified you on earth by completing down to the last detail what you assigned me to do.
We are the only creature that God made twice! Can you believe that? How valuable to God must we be? The first time I was made was described beautifully in Ps 139 – “you knit me together – I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” The second time I was made (rebuilt) it took the death of His son. How important must my mission be, that God has for me to complete, if it cost Him that much? I need to take a good hard look at the time and effort and cost God expended to build me and then RE-build me!
I am fully equipped, by God Himself. I am made on purpose – for a purpose.
I am fitted out for the adventure of a lifetime.
I just need to begin!
