One of the “how big is God” questions ponders whether or not God is powerful enough to create me personally into a one-of-a-kind Kingdom person. Has He worked despite the circumstances and ups and downs of my life by giving me my own recipe of experiences and gifts to accomplish is perfect Kingdom purpose for my life? Am I a cosmic mistake or depersonalized accident or a possession of God who is “fearfully and wonderfully made?
According to the GodStory in Ephesians 4, when Jesus was resurrected He imparted gifts to His Kingdom followers. “But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ’s gift. Therefore it says, ‘When He ascended on high, He led captive a host of captives, and He gave gifts to men.”
This leads me to turn off my pressure to perform. I can respond to and take personal responsibility for who I am fitted and gifted to be. I can reason through my life with spiritual eyes rather than merely human constructs.
1 Corinthians 3:10-17 paints an incredible picture of what it means to live a gifted life in harmony with both God’s Kingdom and His design for me.
Enjoy thinking about the Why and What of you 🙂
