Our Gift to God
Chosen by God!
One of the best gifts we can give to God, and the world, is to see ourselves the way God sees us, which comes by defining ourselves by what the Word says about us and not what the world says about us.
Seeing ourselves the way God sees us is the only way we’ll be able to walk in the inheritance He’s given us.
(Do you remember the spies in Numbers scouting out the Promised Land? How they saw themselves determined their ability to walk into the Promised Land. Since they saw themselves as grasshoppers they did not believe they could possess the land and because of that they did not. Believing we are who God says we are is the key to walking in the inheritance He’s given us.)
His Word says we are:
We are - Created in His image (Genesis 1:27 NKJV) (He created the world with words and we can create our world with our words.)
We are - God’s masterpiece created with purpose to do great works for the Kingdom (Ephesians 2:10 NLT) (That means we are originals, not a replica! No one in the world can do what we do in the way that we can do it. He’s gifted us individually.)
We are - Precious and honored in His sight (Isaiah 43:4 NKJV) (Think about that a moment, precious and honored is how God sees us.)
We are - Redeemed and forgiven (Ephesians 1:7 NKJV) (That means God sees us through the blood of Jesus which makes us right with Him.)
We are - New creations in Christ (II Corinthians 5:17 Amplified) (We’re not the same person we were before we encountered God and accepted the gift of the Holy Spirit. Our past is over.)
We are - Holy and blameless before God (Ephesians 1:4 NKJV) (Again God sees us through the blood of Jesus which makes us right with God.)
We are - Chosen by God, being built into a spiritual house (I Peter 2:4-5 NIV) (God wanted us. We’re not His by default! He chose us on purpose for His purpose!)
By accepting Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior we have the opportunity to give our best, by becoming a yielded vessel for God’s use.
