"I have become all

Christian worker has to learn how to be Godís man or woman of great worth and
excellence in the midst of a multitude of meager and worthless things.
Never protest by saying, If only I were somewhere else! All of Godís
people are ordinary people whom God made extraordinary for the purpose He has
given them. Unless we have the right purpose intellectually in our minds
and lovingly in our hearts, we will very quickly be diverted from being useful
We are not workers for God by choice. Many people deliberately choose to be workers, but they have no purpose of Godís almighty grace or His mighty Word in them. It is a means of accomplishing their agenda. They use the name of God in passing to look and sound like true Christians!
They are the wolves in sheep clothing to confuse the true believers and turn the hearts and minds of believers to their own purpose. Paul's whole heart, mind, and soul were consumed with the great purpose of what Jesus Christ came to do, and he never lost sight of that one thing. Can we say today that we have a purpose? Are we accomplishing God's will? We must continually confront ourselves with one central fact- "Jesus Christ and Him crucified (1 Corinthians 2:2)."
"I chose you (John 15:16)." Keep these words as a wonderful reminder in your theology. It is not that you have gotten God, but that He has gotten you. God is at work bending, breaking, molding, and doing exactly as He chooses. Why is He doing it? He is doing it for only one purpose-that He may be able to say, "This is My man, and this is My woman." We have to be in Godís hand so that He can place others on the Rock, Jesus Christ, just as He has placed us.
"Never choose to be a worker, but once God has placed His call upon you, woe be to you if you turn aside to the right or the left (Deuteronomy 28:14)."
He will do with you what He never did before His call came to you, and He will do with you what He is not doing with other people. Let Him have His way.
