Today Reminder - 25 June 2012 (Chosen)

My prayer for you for today is that you will know that you are who you are not by chance, in Jesus name.

1 Peter 1:2
God the Father knew you and chose you long ago, and His Spirit has made you holy. As a result, you have obeyed Him and have been cleansed by the blood of Jesus Christ. May God give you more and more grace and peace.

Chosen - God the Father knew you and chose you long ago. Every part of who you are has been designed and created by God. He made you who you are for a special purpose - His purpose! And each day you can live to reach that purpose or ultimately you can live it. You see we are all made in God’s creation to glorify Him. Each one of us in his way has been made to fit in at just the right place. And each one of us travels through this world living our lives and walking along our journey. Your journey can lead you to many places or it can lead you to many people or your journey has already brought you where you are needed. I believe that it is the small things we do that eventually make the big things so great. It is those things that we probably don’t even notice that leads up to become the stuff that we cannot forget. Just like a small boy born from unknown parents who grew up as a carpenter and eventually saved the entire human race. We are not defined by the way we handle greatness, but by the way we humble ourselves in the small things. We can live our whole lives waiting for that moment or we can be that moment in everything we face and do.

My dear friend, just like a fire fighter storms a burning building almost every day of his life, not seeking glory, but instead to save lives, we too can start each day not for the glory moments but for the small moments, not thinking of ourselves but instead thinking of those we meet.  Come and let us be mood changers, people changers and finally city changers.

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus.
