You Are An Original

Galatians 5:24 - 6:1 The Message

Among those who belong to Christ, everything connected with getting our own way and mindlessly responding to what everyone calls necessities is killed off for good - crucified.

Since this is the kind of life we have chosen, the life of the Spirit, let us make sure that we do not just hold it as an idea in our heads or a sentiment in our hearts, but work out its implications in every detail of our lives.

That means we will not compare ourselves with each other as if one of us were better and another worse. We have far more interesting things to do with our lives. Each of us is an original. Live creatively, friends.

God did not die so that we would become clones.

Eric Lidell, the Olympic runner made famous in the movie 'Chariots of Fire' said, "When I run I feel God's pleasure." He went on to say, "God made me fast."

How has God made you as an original, and how many opportunities does He get to smile at you being creative in your own way?

Could pleasing Jesus Christ be as simple as giving your best in the unique areas of God-giftedness of your life?
