You Are God’s Gift to the World
But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ’s gift. (Ephesians 4:7 NKJV)
To each one, grace was given! He left no one out. He made sure to include you.
What did He give you? A gift of grace. A gift that makes you extremely valuable. A gift that empowers you to play a special role in His body and in this world.
But now God has placed the parts—each one of them—in the body just as He desired…The eye cannot tell the hand, “I don’t need you!” or in turn the head to the feet, “I don’t need you!” (1 Corinthians 12:18-21 TLV)
Now, are not the eyes God’s gift to the human body? And the hands? And the feet also? Most certainly!
So, what do you become when God graces you with a gift and places you where He wants you to be in the body? You become His gift to the Church. You become His gift to the world!
Child of God, don’t listen to the lies the devil places in your mind that make you feel worthless. Don’t let anybody convince you that you are unnecessary and insignificant. Remember, you are not only gifted. You are God’s gift to the Church. You are His gift to the world.
Now, don’t let this make you proud. But do let it make you confident. And grateful.
