A First-Rate Original Or A Lousy Imitation

Monday, August 20, 2018

In one Peanuts comic strip, Charlie Brown was asked if he’d like to have been Abraham Lincoln. He answers, “I’m having a hard enough time just being me.” When you die, you will not be asked why you weren’t Paul or some other great Christian leader. God made you precious and unique. Nobody else can fulfill your calling, nor can you fulfill the calling of anybody else. So when you try to be somebody else instead of yourself, you become a second-rate imitation. When you try to fulfill somebody else’s calling instead of your own, you actually sin against God, because He didn’t make you to be somebody else. The holiest thing you can do is be the best, godliest, on fire for the Lord you that you can be. And you can be, for it is written I can do all things through Messiah who strengthens me. So forget about what everybody else is doing, and focus on being faithful to God’s calling for your life. Be yourself in His grace and your life instead of ending up a second-rate imitation. Be a first-rate original.

From Message #966 - The Heavenly Calling
