Dear Precious Friends
As we start a new day thanking God for this amazing gift, seeking Him first, spending time with Him, we realize we are created to make an eternal impact that no one else can make. We’ve each been given special gifts to be used for the kingdom that are incredibly important and unique. No one else can touch people’s lives like we can. God created us for a unique purpose that is solely ours, and He is ready today to equip and empower us to make a deep and lasting impact on this earth.
Ephesians 2:10 says, “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” We are the workmanship of the Master Craftsman. We are the creation of the Almighty Creator of all. And He has made us for such a time as this. We are not here by mistake. We are not less than other believers around us. Our calling and anointing carries no less weight or importance in the kingdom than anyone else’s.
As Christians, we have been made new. The person we were before believing in Jesus has been redeemed and transformed. We now have the same Holy Spirit dwelling within us who raised Jesus from the grave, empowered the disciples to save, heal, and set free the lost, and authored the words of Scripture.
Making an eternal impact is all about us becoming and living out of who we are in Christ Jesus. It’s about adopting the new creation that we have become through the power of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection. 1 Peter 2:9-10 says,
As we embrace who we are in Christ, it is overwhelming to know
"we are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that we may proclaim the excellencies of Him who called us out of darkness into His marvelous light. Once we were not a people, but now we are God’s people; once we had not received mercy, but now we have received mercy."
This means we have His power, His strength, His wisdom, His eyes, His ears, His word and His hand to sustain, guide, look ahead, hear, speak and protect us!!!
We can make an eternal impact when we focus less about us and more about our awesome God who called us out of darkness into His marvelous light.” It is hard in this "ME" world, but as Christians, its not about us! It's all about Him!
We can proclaim and share with our life the depth of power, love, grace, transformation, and forgiveness our heavenly Father has toward all who believe and we can share what that looks like in our lives! We belong to the King of kings and Lord of Lords. He is with us always and is ready to empower us for a life of eternal impact. There is no greater life than when we see the world transformed by the our Lord and walk in His power for the purpose He has us here for.
May we go out in His incredible power changing the world for eternity. "Only one life twill soon be past, only whats done for Christ will last".
