How many times have you heard someone, or yourself, say, “I can’t preach, I can’t sing, I can’t dance, I’m useless, how can I serve?
What does God say about you? You are His workmanship created in Christ Jesus for good works. What does Jesus say about you? You are the salt of the earth. You are the light of the world (now that He’s left)! What do you do with a handcrafted tool? You use it for the special job it was made for. What do you do with salt? You season things! What do you do with light? You let it shine and drive away the darkness! So you can’t sing or dance, that’s not what He created you to do, but you can use your special hand craftiness to season and shine with His love! Quick side note. We didn’t do or don’t do good works to get saved, only God’s grace through Jesus can do that. We do good works after we’re saved to show our love and gratitude for being saved. So, take your special craftsmanship and let it shine, to our brothers and sisters in the Lord and then to the world. You may shine by praying, making a simple phone call of encouragement, or by acts of thoughtfulness and kindness wherever you go.
There are endless ways to show His love and they don’t have to be epic and world changing, they can change just one life at a time. So, take your personal handcrafted talent and get out there and start throwing some salt around!
