We need to play our part. All of our Spiritual gifts, heart, abilities, personality and experiences make us who we are and that exactly how God wants to work through us.

Episode Notes & Bible Verses
I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. – Psalm 139:14
We have to remember praise God for who he created us to be. One reason we may not appreciate all that makes us who we are is because we are not in line with Gods purpose for us. He created us for his specific purposes and it’s only when we walk out those plans that we utilize our gifts, talents, abilities, and experiences.
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.” Jeremiah 1:5
God knew us before we were conceived. And this is not to say that God knew our name. No. This is to say that God knew everything about us. Who we would become, what experience in life we would have and what drives us emotionally. God knew every situation you would find yourself in and every outcome. And he still chose you to be in relationship with him and to make a difference in this world that ONLY you can make.
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
Each one of us was made uniquely to fit into Gods plan for humanity. Each of us have a specific role to play in that plan that God had prepared for us before we were born. This is how important YOU are to what God is doing in the earth.
But even the hairs of your head are all numbered. – Matthew 10:30 ESV
Do you know how much time or effort it would take to count the number of hair on your head? I don’t even know if there is a computer that has been created that can do this accurately. What this saying is that God knows exactly how much hairs are on your head. And he knows every single specific detail about you.
But now, O Lord, you are our Father; we are the clay, and you are our potter; we are all the work of your hand. – Isaiah 64:8
We are the works of Gods hands. Just as it’s impossible for a potter to make 100% identical pots of clay, no two people are alike. Even if a potter tries to make identical pots, there will be slight difference between them. There is no person that has ever had the same finger print or heart beat as anyone else in m the world. That how unique you are.
Even so the body is not made up of one part but of many. Now if the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body,” it would not for that reason stop being part of the body. And if the ear should say, “Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body,” it would not for that reason stop being part of the body. If the whole body were an eye, where would the sense of hearing be? If the whole body were an ear, where would the sense of smell be? But in fact God has placed the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be. – 1 Corinthians 12:14-18 NIV
Using the Body Paul emphasize the importance of each church members. If a part that seems insignificant is taken away then the whole body will be less effective. Also, be careful that you think that your gift is better than someone else’s because that’s a sign of spiritual pride.
For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. – Romans 12:4-5
Paul again uses the concept of a human body to teach how Christians should work together. Just as the body works under the direction of the brain, Christians should work together under the authority of Jesus.
But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.” – 1 Samuel 16:7
Samuel may have been looking for someone like Saul to be the next king but God warned him against judging by appearance alone. Appearance doesn’t reveal what people are really like or what their true value is. Each person is made up of a unique set of skills abilities and experiences that qualify them for Gods purposes.
As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace: whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies—in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen. – 1 Peter 4:10-11
Everyone has some gifts. Our responsibility is to find out what they are and use them to be a blessing to others. All of our abilities should be used to serve others and no two people can have the same ability to the same extent. But it’s all for Gods glory to be a blessing to others and to cause growth in your life.
