No One Like You!
Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually.
1 Corinthians 12:27
For about $75,000 you can buy Spot, the mass-produced robotic dog that can walk, climb stairs, and eventually open doors. He doesn’t need housetraining, feeding, or a daily walk. And he can be helpful in difficult situations. He has cameras in his eyes, is rust-proof, and can operate in terrible weather. But, he isn’t safe for children, and he isn’t unique. Every Spot is essentially like every other Spot—and he’s not really alive.
God has created billions of beings who are alive. He put cameras in our eyes, a beating heart in our chests, and remarkable physical systems that defy the finest robotic innovators. And we don’t rust.
Furthermore, we aren’t mass produced. Each of us is uniquely created by God with our own personalities, gifts, talents, backgrounds, faces, and fingerprints. We all have one purpose—to glorify God and enjoy Him forever—but we can have individual ministries. There is no one like you. There never has been, and there never will be.
You should use you for Him!
When you are clear about what makes you a unique individual, you can then better understand what it is that you can give to others. You can know your unique place in the world and the purpose that God has for you.
