"And many resorted unto him, and said, John did no miracle: but all things that John spake of this man were true."
(John 10:41 KJV)
Our Awesome God created each of us as special individuals to do a specific job. Are you dissatisfied with yourself? You wanted to do something great or wonderful with your life. Instead you are not a genius, you have no unusual gifts and you have no special abilities. Average seems to be your existence. Nothing you do is worth making mention of unless it is the lack of change and zest in what you do. But do you fully understand the purpose you were put on earth for? Have you researched your purpose so that you have it memorized? Does God want you to teach? To preach? To be an example of Jesus?
Our Awesome God's Bible verse mentioned above is about John the Baptist who never performed a miracle that we know of but told rulers, disciples and anyone who would listen about Jesus Christ and who He was. And because of this Jesus went on to say of him, "For I say unto you, Among those that are born of women there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist: but he that is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he." (Luke 7:28 KJV). John's job on earth was to tell of the coming of Jesus (John1:8) and it is your Christian job also (Matthew 28:19-20).
We should do all we can every day and do the "insignificant" jobs knowing that Our Awesome God will see. If you live with difficult people, win them to Christ with love. You know you made big mistakes in your life but don't let them control and cloud the rest of your life, because you are forgiven (1 John 1:9). Instead pray and ask God how He wants you to do the job, where He wants you to do it and when He wants you to do it. Start looking for a new and different way to tell people about Jesus Christ.
By living as an example of Christ and sharing simple truths about Him, you will be doing more good and sowing of His Words than you know (Isaiah 55:11). Just do the best you can for Our Awesome God and let Him do the rest to bring that person into the family of God. To do that, you need the encouragement and love of God's Church and people. Life is never a failure when you are doing God's Will. He has a purpose for you being here now!
We can help you find your purpose. Come join us as we work in Our Awesome God's vineyard, telling others about His story, Jesus Christ's Salvation, and our eternal home with Him, trying to help them to understand Our Creator better. Our church starts with small groups on Sunday at 9:30 AM and a Worship Service at 10:30 AM. On Sunday evening at 6:00 PM, a Bible Study meets for an hour with a 1½ hour program for children called AWANA. We have a Prayer Meeting that meets at 7:00 PM On Wednesday. Learn with us how to use and invest your time with wisdom for Our Awesome God!
