My mom had this full set of china that sat in its own storage cupboard. Far, far away from ever being set out for use at the supper table. Maybe that’s the case at your house as well. Mom has this incredible set of China, rarely used or taken out of its protective shelter.
Obviously cherishing something very nice, my mom was afraid of something disastrous happening to the China. Probably with good reason. So, she kept it locked in a safe place.
Yet, I have to admit, I did wonder sometimes, “Why don’t we use it? Aren’t plates and silverware supposed to be used?” It certainly is not of any use to anyone when it stays in the cupboard all wrapped up.
When I think of that China, I think of God’s feeling for you! You are precious to God! In fact, the Bible says that “you are God’s masterpiece.” God has made you in a very special way for a very special purpose.
It is great to stand back and celebrate how wonderful you are. Still, something so special will not be all that God made it to be unless God USES it!
In fact, being used by God to make a difference in this world for Jesus is the reason God made you and me in the first place. We were created with a God-given design and a God-honoring purpose. From your very first breath, God had a plan to use you in a way that can uniquely and specially touch another person’s life.
God has a mission for you and it is this: Share the Good News of Jesus Christ with others. Wherever you are at, learn it, live it, share it!
