Dear Precious Friends,
I pray on this beautiful new day we all stop and thank God for this gift. All we have is this day and we focus on what we know. We know that we are here for a purpose. We have all been through so much. Life has been filled with great uncertainty and difficulty that we have not known before. Many have lost loved ones and it seems as though everyone is going through so much. So what are we to do? We are to be reminded of why we are here and what God wants for us during such a time as this.
You and I were created to make an eternal impact that no one else can make. We’ve each been given an assignment of good works that are incredibly important and wholly unique. No one else can touch people’s lives like you can. God created each of 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.” You are the workmanship of the Master Craftsman. You are the creation of the Almighty Creator of all. And he has made each of us here for such a time as this. We are not here by mistake. We are not less than other believers around you. Our calling and anointing carries no less weight or importance in the kingdom than anyone else’s.
As a Christian, 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.
WE HAVE RESURRECTION POWER! It is time we take this power and act on it!
Making an eternal impact is all about you becoming and living out of who you are in Christ Jesus. It’s about adopting the new creation that you have become through the power of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection. 1 Peter 2:9-10 says,
But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
Making an eternal impact is less about you and more about the “excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.” It’s about proclaiming with your life the depth of power, love, grace, transformation, and forgiveness your heavenly Father has toward all who believe. You belong to the King of kings and Lord of lords. He is with you always and is ready to empower you for a life of eternal impact. There is no greater life than one seeing the world transformed by the love of its Creator.
My friends, lets remember who we are and whose we are and the power we have as we go about this day. Only one life twill soon be past, only whats done for Christ will last.
May we focus on those things of eternal impact as we go about this day today and every day.
