You Need to Be You - July 21, 2023

“God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies” (Philippians 4:9 MSG).

The Unseen Conductor prompts this orchestra we call living. When gifted teachers aid struggling students and skilled managers disentangle bureaucratic knots, when dog lovers love dogs and number crunchers zero balance the account, when you and I do the most what we do the best for the glory of God, we are “marvelously functioning parts in Christ’s body” (Romans 12:5 MSG).

You play no small part because there is no small part to be played. The Author of the human drama entrusted your part to you alone. Live your life, or it won’t be lived. We need you to be you, and you need you to be you. God is here to help you be the best you that you can be.
