Are You Special?

Ephesians 1:3-4
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight.

Do you think you’re special? God does.

You were picked out apart from all others to be exactly who you are. You were given a personality and physical traits which distinguish you from others.

God thinks you’re special because he looked inside himself and gave you pieces of him that he wanted to see in you. If God is love (and he is), then you have pieces of his love in you – by his design.

As you worship God and study his word, allow yourself to be used by him. Give him the opportunity to help others with your hands and to comfort the wounded with his powerful words from your mouth.

God wants to see himself in you. He wants to see you in him too. So continue seeking God and studying his word. Be aware of the opportunities he puts before you.

When you look into God’s face, can you see yourself? Most of us say, “Of course not.” However, I challenge you to find yourself in him.
