“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” (Ephesians 2:10, NIV)
Created for Greatness
It’s easy to go through life thinking that we’re average; we’re ordinary. “There’s nothing special about me. I’m just one of the six billion people on earth.” No, when God created you in His image, He put a part of Himself in you. You could say that you have the DNA of Almighty God. You are destined to do great things, destined to leave your mark on this generation. The truth is, there is nothing average about you; but too many times, we don’t realize who we are. We focus on our weaknesses or what we don’t have. We focus on the mistakes we’ve made or the family from which we’ve come. We end up settling for mediocrity when we were created for greatness!
If you’re going to break out of average, you need to remind yourself every day, “I have the DNA of the Most High God. Greatness is in my genes. I come from a bloodline of champions.” If you’ll have the attitude of a champion, you’ll live the life of a champion and boldly embrace the blessings He has in store for you!
A Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You for preparing me to do the good works You have prepared. I am not average. I am not ordinary. I am created for greatness, and I belong to Almighty God. Thank You for Your faithfulness in Jesus’ name! Amen.”
Actually, yes and no… Adam was a Son of God as also Jesus is a Son of God. But due to the pride and disobedience of Adam he lost out on that GOD potential and died. And then we were all born in the image of fallen Adam and born disconnected. We find this in 1 Cor. 15:22 and originally Adam was made a living soul but died, verse 45. But the 2nd Adam (Christ Jesus) came as a quickening spirit. He (Christ Jesus) came to give us the way to gain back that original vision of GOD and to be made in HIS Image and Likeness. So we have this potential but the process is straight and narrow and few there be that find it. And as GOD never changes HIS mind that potential is still in each one of us so that who-so-ever will may come and drink of the water of life freely, Rev.22:17.
But the WAY from where we are to being like CHRIST JESUS will take your total commitment, Amplified Bible: John 12:24-26….
And Jesus prayed for us to be successful: John 17:20-26…
So we see it is still in our Creator’s vision to sanctify us and make us in HIS image and likeness through Christ Jesus through the process of faith and sanctification. So as we get the picture and submit to the process He will give us grace and more faith to accomplish HIS divine purpose in us. But we can be filled with pride and rebel just as Adam did. Our Father in Heaven’s ultimate goal is to create a family like HIM what has heart chosen love, peace and righteousness and that is totally obedient by choice.
Jude gives us a quick look at what happen to souls if they reject the love and the grace of GOD in HIS loving restoration attempt: Jude 11-16….
