Do you know who you are? You are God's message – His proclamation of hope to a world in need of everything He has to offer. The world often doesn't know it is in need of Him, but you know, and that's what counts. You are one powerful package! As a born again believer, you have the Holy Spirit living in you, and you are fully equipped and commissioned to share God's Word, His mercy, His grace, and His love to everyone around you. You don't have to be a preacher to do that. God uses you just the way you are, just where you are.
I used to think I needed to be bolder, or I needed to be more direct or “in your face” to be useful to God, but do you know that God made you just the way you are because he needs all kinds of gifts and tools to reach all sorts of people? Just like there must be all different types of seeds in order to grow all of the different vegetables we need to nourish our bodies, there must be all kinds of people with different personalities to share His message in all sorts of ways to nourish someone's spirit and to reap the harvest of souls of all different types of people. You are the perfect person to take His message of forgiveness, love, peace, joy, and comfort to the folks God has put in your path. You have the perfect seeds, seeds of God's truth, within you to sow into someone else's life, to set them free, to make a difference – today. As a born again believer, God has given you the mind of Christ (2 Cor. 2:16) and the Holy Spirit to minister to others, to set them free, to minister His healing, to show His mercy (Luke 4:18; Isaiah 61:1). Sometimes the simplest act of compassion or kindness is the biggest treasure a person will receive that day. Jesus tells us that whatever we have done for another, we have done for Him (Matt. 25:35-40). You may not always be led to share a specific Scripture or pray the prayer of salvation with someone, but if you just ask God to use you each day, to help you show His love or share His joy or peace with someone, He will. Then He will take all of the seeds sown and make them into a beautiful masterpiece in someone's life. Nothing you offer to another person as Jesus’ messenger is insignificant or wasted. You are valuable; what you have to offer is significant and important...to others...and to God. He is overjoyed when you share a word of faith or encouragement with another one of His children. You become the manifestation of Jesus to a world in need.
So, go forth...know how important you are in His plan of love and redemption. Know how strong and powerful you are, equipped with the knowledge of His Word to touch those in need around you. You, through Christ, are someone’s world changer!
Walk forth as Christ’s loving hands to the world around you,
If you have never made Jesus the Lord of your life and desire to, pray this: Dear God, I believe that Jesus is your Son, that He died on the cross for me and was resurrected for my redemption. I choose to make Jesus the Lord of my life. I thank you for forgiving me and for filling me with Your Holy Spirit. I thank You that I am Your child, that You are my Father, and that You have great things planned for me. Amen.
