God's Unique Role for Me

In summary of Ephesians 2:10 it says, “God planned for us to do good things and to live as he has always wanted us to live. That’s why he sent Christ to make us what we are.”

Bottom Line:
God has planned us out in order to accomplish good things and live a life he wants us to live.  He send his son Christ to bring us back to this.

What this means to me:
I am a masterpiece of God (his handiwork / workmanship.)  He created me new in Christ Jesus so that I can do the things he has pre-planned that only I can do.  I owe who I am today to God’s work. I can continue to be of use to him if I walk the paths he has prepared for me.  The result will be a good life dedicated to his service.  Overall he has a unique role for me to play.  Part of this role (leading home fellowship groups / participating as part of the worship team) is within the local church I am a member of.  In this way I help the church accomplish it’s goals.  I am not to just model God’s love by loving each other; I am to carry it together to the rest of the world.  God also has a wider ministry for me and I’m still learning what that is.  I need to make sure I don’t lose sight of this.  I need to get after it and do my part to further his Kingdom.
