HE supernaturally packaged and let me into earth — to fulfill purpose. Abba wasn’t checking any Facebook post… There was no distraction to attend to. He was very conscious of making this being and wasn’t in a hury. And then there was me: made in His image, created for His glory. Yes, I may not be as Mr. CurledHair or Miss PrettyFace, yet God properly made me. And this, an amazing fellow, some millenia ago, thoughtfully appreciated:
I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. (Psalm 139:14 KJV).
He was very sure of it. And so am I… Super sure of it! My soul knows right well.
You’re such a unique being: you’re properly made. Did you get that? May be you didn’t. I mean, You didn’t metamorphose from some Monkey as proposed in certain evolution madness.
You are one of God’s greatest creation. Not at all can science, race, skin colour, religion, or physical impairment counter that. In fact, according to Psalm 82:6, you’re a ‘god.’ Amazing… Isn’t it?
A farmer doesn’t apply fertilizers to his farm soil for formality or for some fun of chemical experiments. He rather does so for the implication of getting good yields from his farm consequently. Similarly, engineers who design and manufacture automobiles do not just go into automobile designing and manufacturing for the fun of it, but for the profit gained when the automobiles are sold and eventually get on the roads.
Being properly made in God’s likeness is intentional; you’re special for a purpose! Ever wondered why you’re good in doing that sport, or why you’re awesome at playing that musical instrument or in doing music, or why you’re the smart one at class, or why you’re just an exceptional at your place of work? It’s explicitely so for a purpose.
God has endowed you with enormous potentials and unique physical attributes for the sole purpose of getting you dedicated to pleasing Him (Romans 12:1). God’s word says you’re meant to house God’s spirit (1 Corinthians 6:19) — an obvious reason why you’re a ‘god.’ His perfect plan for you has been that of living for His glory, to please Him in love, in volition, with all of yourself.
I hope you’re not that an ingrate that despises this privilege and purpose with acts of hate, malice, smoking, violence, lusting, cheating, stealing, pornography, lying, envying, gossip, drunkenness, and the likes.
You should be aware that you’re properly made not for any man or woman, or for anything to mess up God’s properly made handiwork.
CARELESS, ANY REMEDY?
Sure! Jesus Christ is the only true remedy. He still loves you. You’re very important to Him.
Do know that devil hates you and your uniqueness, a reason why he employs sin to steal, kill, and destroy your worth. You dare not allow this hater to continue dealing with you. Wise up! You need to JUMP out of those lifestlyes of carelessness — lying, stealing, lusting, pornography, malice, jealousy, hatred, and the likes — as soon as NOW and seek Jesus by confessing those sins to God sincerely, accepting and believing that Jesus Christ is capable of getting you out of them, asking Him for forgiveness and cleansing with His redeeming blood, and promising Him not to be careless anymore. He’ll forgive you and accept you. His grace, very sufficient and effective, will equip and empower you to live above any act of sin or human weakness (2 Corinthians 12:9).
And, if you’re CHRIST-LIKE already, Glory to God! But still know, “You are bought with a price… glorify God in your body, and in your spirit which are God’s.” (1 Corinthians 6:20).
You’re special! You’re properly made! Let nothing make you feel less. Be proud of being you.
