We are His workmanship

Ephesians 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.

Each and every one of us is special because God created everyone differently. In each of us He put a unique personality, specific traits, and He even gave us each a purpose of our own.

Ultimately, we’re all on the same mission, working towards the same goal, to life up Jesus and glorify the Father, and to bring people to a saving knowledge of Him. Along that journey, though, we all play different parts. You have a task that only you can do. I have one that only I can do. God empowers us to do exactly what He’s called us to do.

He’s given you a set of talents that are yours alone. They’re not to be used for your own gain, but for His purposes. He gave you your talents and you purpose in life before He even created the world. Before time, you had a mission. Before the world was in existence, you were equipped. Then God formed you and set you apart. Live with the knowledge that you are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works that He prepared beforehand.
