Key Words: that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you
You are here and I am here on this earth for a purpose. Everything that is, has a purpose. For example:
Everybody has in their homes manufactured products. Appliances such as a toaster, refrigerator, stove, microwave, or an electric can opener are commonly found in people’s homes, and each of those has a different workmanship. They are designed differently. They have different parts that make them operate. Each one has its own unique reason for being. Now, if that appliance operates outside of its reason for being there, we have a problem. If you want to cook things in the refrigerator and freeze things in the stove, you are going to have a difficult situation in the home because that’s not what the workmanship is for. The workmanship is used for whatever the creator designed it to do. The toaster does not tell the creator what it’s going to do today. The stove does not tell the creator what it’s going to do today. It is the creator that dictates to the appliance the reason why the appliance exists. The appliance does whatever it’s been designed to do.
In the same way, we are God’s creation and He dictates to us why we exist, and can tell us what we are designed to do. He gives us our purpose. If we operate outside of our reason for being, that’s when we experience problems. Walking in the purpose God designed for us is how we fulfill our unique reason for being—and that unique reason is to show forth the praises of God.
What to do:
✞ Wherever you go and whatever you do, show forth the praise of God in your life.
