Luke 3…We have a purpose
"I have glorified You on the earth. I have finished the work which You have given Me to do." John 17:4
Each of us have a specific function and role in the Body of Christ. We have been uniquely designed and equipped to accomplish our task so that at the end of our lives we can say as Jesus, I have glorified you on earth, I have done the work you have given me to do. In this, will we humbly embrace and accept who God has made us to be, like John, or will we constantly desire to be something other than our divinely designed destination?
This pursuit requires that we decrease so that Christ can increase in our lives. However, the benefit will always be the moment when, in our humility, we get to see Jesus glorified in our service, sense the power of the Holy Spirit working through us and hear the voice of God whispering His pleasure with our steps of faith.
