Ephesians 2:8 (TLB) Because of his kindness, you have been saved through trusting Christ. And even trusting is not of yourselves; it too is a gift from God.

  • You may belong to a family or a church but your FIRST priority is to know and love HIM, the God who loves you.

The second priority is to discover who HE created YOU to be and to find fulfilment in DOING what He designed you to do.

For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. Ephesians 2:10 (NLT)

For many people, involvement in church activities is the main thing in Christianity. 

  • Some church leaders help people to discover their callings and release them into a life of spiritual adventure. 
  • Sadly there are others seem to think the purpose of most Christians is to help build church organisations of which they are the leaders.

Bless others by discovering who you are. Find out who you are created to be and what your Creator designed you to do.

  • Some Christians are especially gifted and called to build up other believers in their local congregation. 
  • Others have a special calling to build up believers in their workplace, on the Internet, in their extended family or in their city.
  • Others have special gifts to win unbelievers to faith in Jesus Christ.
  • Others have gifts to change the thinking and work practices in workplaces, companies or even whole industries. 
  • Some have gifts in politics, media, science, or intercession. They have God given gifts which can prevent wars or win wars, change nations or redirect civilizations.

It is so important to know where you are primarily called to serve.

  • John Wimber had an apostolic gifting to plant and lead a major spiritual movement. He was also an amazingly gifted personal evangelist. Thousands came to faith in Jesus Christ through contact with him.
  • When he was converted to Christ, he was working as a manager of popular singers and entertainers. He was a genuine Christian convert and committed himself to attending a weekly prayer meeting in the church where he was a member. Then he was offered the job of managing The Beatles on a tour of the USA. He turned it down because he felt obliged to attend weekly meetings in his local church. 

What if he had managed The Beatles and God had used him to win them to Christ? 

How many millions could have been influenced for Jesus instead of being seduced by drugs, Hindu mysticism and empty youth culture?
