have a minute to read from my devotion today.Be Who You Are
1 CORINTHIANS 15:10 NIV
10 But by the grace of God I am what I am - 1 cor 15:10
God is a brilliant Creator. He only makes originals -- not copies. According to Ephesians 2:10, you are God's work of art.
God made you unique. So be all that God created you to be.
Don't try to be someone else. Don't try to be an ear in the Body of Christ, if God made you a foot. Just be yourself.
This does not mean that you cannot improve, or grow. Growth is part of God's plan. And we can certainly learn from others, and imitate excellent actions and attitudes.But too many people are insecure and hope to gain acceptance from others by conforming to what they think will make them popular or successful -- even though they hate it and know they are not being real.
Don't let the world pressure you into conforming.
Express the originality that God put within you. God made you the way you are for a purpose -- His purpose.
This is not to encourage rebellion, of course. But it is not God's plan for us all to be identical and do everything in the same way.
I am not saying you have to try to be different. Just be who God made you -- without fear.
Not everyone may like you, or what you do. But that is normal. You can't always please everyone. Make it your aim to please God by expressing what He made you.
The Bible reveals many truths about who we are once we receive Jesus Christ. We actually receive new life, a new standing with God, and new ability. As you feed the Word of God into your thinking, that new life will be able to manifest more and more.
thanks for a minute read . . .
