Be Who You Are!

Ephesians 2:10:  For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
God has created each one of us and we are unique.  We each have different sets of gifts, talents, personalities and we function in different ways within the body of Christ.  Many do not even realize what gifts they have or how they can best function in the church because they have not taken the time to figure this out.  God has created you for a divine purpose and in order to fulfill that purpose, you need to be moving in the gifts and talents he has given you.  There are personality and gifting tests that you can take to help you figure this out.  Once you do, you will have a new understanding of who you really are.  It is a very liberating moment when you recognize who you are in Christ.  You are his creation and you were meant to glorify him in your sphere of influence with your specific set of gifts and talents.  Additionally, once you grasp the personality that he has given you, you become more aware of your strengths and weaknesses. This knowledge takes the pressure off of you to be someone you are not.  Comparing yourself to others becomes a nonsensical idea now because you are one of a kind.  It also helps you sort out what jobs, positions and ministry will best suit you.   Lastly, seeking out the help of a more mature Christian who can mentor you in you in this area will help to put the wind under your wings so that you can soar!
