YOU ARE SPECIAL – Rev Joshua Talena

(John 14:6-7) Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth and the life: no man cometh to the Father, but by me. If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.

Every human being was created to accomplish something specific that no one else can accomplish. It is crucial for you to understand this truth: You were born to do something that the world would not be able to ignore. It may be in your church, your community, your state, or beyond. The Bible is a great book for recording the stories of people who did things that the world can’t forget. One example is Rahab, the prostitute, who risked her life for people she didn’t even know. She was born to hide Joshua’s spies so that the Israelites could defeat Jericho. (See Joshua 2:6).

In the New Testament, Mary Magdalene took an alabaster jar of perfume and anointed Jesus’ head with it. This woman was taking a chance by violating the accepted social norms of the day and interrupting a group of men who had gathered for a meal. She decided to pour out her life in gratitude to Jesus, damming the consequences. Some of those present severely criticized her saying she had “wasted” costly perfume on Jesus when it could have been sold for charitable purposes. But Jesus said to them, “Leave her alone… I tell you the truth, wherever the gospel is preached throughout the world, what she has done wilt also be told, in memory of her” (Mark 14:6-9). No matter how small the act may be, if you put your whole life into it, it won’t be forgotten.

Child of God, you were designed to be known for something special. You are special, just do something. Give that touch of excellence in your service to God that no other person can do.

Meditation: You were designed to be known for something special.
