Aside

Posted on: 7-15-112014

Many of us, myself included, often look at other people and the things they are accomplishing for the Lord and feel as if what we are doing is so much less important or so much less significant in God’s kingdom.  We may find ourselves a little envious of the work that God has called them to do and wish that God would use us in a similar way. We may start to resent whatever work He has called us to do because we feel it’s too trivial.  However, nothing is farther from the truth.  Every single task that is God-given is of utmost importance.  Every single task that is God-given has purpose. Every single task that is God-given has eternal significance.  Every single task that is God-given is priceless in His eyes.  God doesn’t view the pastor who shares Jesus with multitudes as more important than the mom who spends all day at home sharing Jesus with her toddler.   He doesn’t view the people on the mission field as more important than the man who shares Jesus with his next door neighbor.  He doesn’t view the Christian singer as more valuable in His kingdom than the little girl who is singing “Jesus Loves Me” at the top of her lungs with no audience except Him. God has very specific plans for each one of us…plans that He has divinely orchestrated before we were even born.  He has certain tasks for each of us and all are invaluable to Him.  Whatever He’s called us to do, we need to do it with our whole heart because anything He’s called us to do has eternal consequences.

“Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you; before you were born I sanctified you…” Jeremiah 1:5
