Today I woke up and combed my hair with a fork, blew my nose on sandpaper, put the bread in my shoes to make toast, poured milk in my car to make it run, and put the butter in the oven to keep it cold. “Am I crazy?” you say. Of course not. I just didn’t use things for what they were created.
For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them. (Ephesians 2:10)
Everything has a purpose. Milk can’t make your car go any more than an oven can keep your butter cold. You may be able to halfway comb your hair with a fork, but that’s not its purpose. As a believer God has some purposes for your life as well: evangelism, fellowship, discipleship, service, and worship. Did you know that you will never truly be fulfilled as a Christian until you are operating in all five of these areas? Also, how can you pass along to your students what isn’t already present in your own life? Today do you feel like anything is lacking in your life or your walk with Christ?
God had plans for your life before you were born. Walk in them.
