“…We NEED to know how to put our ‘special gifts’ to work… in our home environment, our work, our social life, and our spiritual pursuits…” 

What is my Role?  Someone recently asked me… what I viewed my ‘role in life to be.’  Meaning… what do I do with my TIME.  What is my JOB?  Ugh…Good Question… I thought.  This is how I responded.

My job is to bring a smile on your face…because… God has chosen YOU for something SPECIAL.  HE has your number…it’s up to YOU to figure out exactly what HE has in store “just for you.”  My job is to help someone, each day, to better utilize their “God-given GIFTS.”

Jeremiah 29:11 tells usFor I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

God has given you (each of us) special gifts…and we NEED to know how to put those ‘special gifts’ to work… in our home environment, our work, our social life, and our spiritual pursuits.  The three main biblical passages describing the special spiritual gifts are Romans 12:6–8; 1 Corinthians 12:4–11; and 1 Corinthians 12:28.  The spiritual gifts identified in Romans 12 are prophesying, serving, teaching, encouraging, giving, leadership, and mercy. Those shown in 1 Corinthians 12:4–11 include the word of wisdom, the word of knowledge, faith, healing, miraculous powers, prophecy, distinguishing between spirits, speaking in tongues and interpretation of tongues. Then, in 1 Corinthians 12:28 … we see… healings, helps, governments, and diversities of tongues.

My job is to help ease the burden… of someone, each day… to help them realize that God is the Great Leader, Teacher, and Motivator….not man, not you, or me, him, or her.  I want to share what it is that God has given me… Through BrOOKS-of-WISDOM… with someone new, each day.  I want others to realize the POWER of prayer.

Philippians 4:6-7 do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

My prayer is that God will give you (each of us), and all those you love and care for… Good Health… Happiness… Reconciliation… and Daily-Conversion (from bad to good, from good to better).

My prayer is that God will give us a Governmental Leadership that realizes that Love, Respect, Humility, Charity, Mercy, and Compassion … Trumps hate, disrespect, ego, selfishness, cruelty, and indifference.

And, being respectful of Individual Freedom, Freedom of Religion, and Self-Protection… which our Country has fought to PROTECT, and is not something that can, or will be, taken from us.

My job is to encourage everyone within my reach… to realize that when we Honor God BEFORE man, that HE will honor us in Heaven.  I want to help others to realize, and accept, that God permitted His only Son to be crucified on the cross, for our sins… so that we would have life everlasting with Him for all of eternity.  To encourage those in which I can… to Repent and Atone for their sins, and try to live according to the Ten Commandments and the Golden Rule.  And, to Love God above all else, and their neighbor as their self.

My job is to do everything I can… to conduct myself, such that… others can see God in my Thought, Word, and Deed.  I pray that God will grant me the wisdom, opportunity, and ability… to be an instrument of His Peace, and a conduit of His Love.

My job is to SERVE God, and my fellow-man.

So… there you go… That’s what I do….

God Bless you, and all those within hearing, or reading distance of this Forum. …cjlb… 7/10/2017
