Do you long to be significant; to feel that your life is worth something?
People often attempt to seek significance through a variety of ways including:
- Financial success
- Career success
- Being loved by someone
- Doing good works
- Being an inventor
- Curing cancer
A few of the ways I listed may be good things.
Scott asked how many people remember the names of their great grandparents. Few could say the first and last name of them. It really hit me that we are here for such a short time and yet ... we crave to be remembered.I realized that I am significant because of who I belong to. I am not significant because I am a nice person or I can help someone. The One true living God loves me and calls me His child. He longs to spend time with me because I am in relationship with Him through Jesus.
Who am I? The words of this song have been continually playing in my head all day today. I had to post this video of Casting Crowns singing it because it is so perfect for this post. Listen to the words and let them sink in.
And out of that love relationship, good works will flow.
But they will be works that He has prepared for me using the unique gifts He has given me.
How special is that? Who am I?
I am a child of the One true God and He loves me.
And that's why ....I am significant!
