You Were Shaped for Serving God
Ephesians 2:10 (NIV)
Synopsis: Ever wonder why you are shaped the way you are? Some of your physical shape is hereditary. Blame that on your parents, but remember you wouldn't be here were it not for them. Some of your physical shape is attributed to your habits. What you take in and what you do makes a big impact on how you look. The advice I get is do more and eat less.
But how are you shaped in the Spirit. Yes, you bear the image of the Father, but is that all there is to it? What you take in has an impact on what you can do and how you look is determined by what you do. You were made by God the Father to serve others in Christ Jesus by the power of the Spirit. Don’t ever forget that you are part of the Father’s project. Bring your all and trust the results to God.
Scripture Text (NLT): Ephesians 2:10 (NIV); 1 Corinthians 3:4-9, CEV; Ephesians 2:8-10, NIV; Galatians 3:1-5, CEV
Memory Verse: Ephesians 2:10 (NIV)
