When the new year began, my church started a new sermon series through the book of Ephesians, titled “Made Worthy, Walk Worthy.” To go along with that, the 20’s & 30’s lifegroup just finished a mini series on identity. Pastor Thomas gave a message on not defining ourselves by our “status and stuff,” but rather using our talents for Christ a couple weeks ago and then asked if anyone would be willing to share how their relationship with The Lord has shaped their identity. I could almost feel Jesus sitting behind me and kicking my tire. “Well… Are you gonna say something?” He asked, reminding me of all the opportunities He’s arranged for me to use my talents for His Glory over the last three or four years. The smart answer had to be: “Alright, yeah, I’m going.”
It was first time I’d really shared my recent journey in public and I was amazed by the clear picture of how God has orchestrated everything in my life, even when I’ve felt lost and aimless. I pray the video encourages you today.
“For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” – Ephesians 2:10
