Ever feel that you don’t have anything else to give? Like you’ve reached an age where you can’t contribute anything worthwhile to further the Kingdom of God? Let me ask you another question: Is there any verse in the Bible which states age is a limitation?
When we grasp and believe the lies Satan plants in our minds, we are led into feeling worthless. God doesn’t ever look on us as useless or worthless. He sent His Son, Jesus, to become human and walk faultless on the earth to teach us the truth, to turn our lives around. And then Jesus was sacrificed to take our sins upon Himself and die that we might be forgiven of the many sins that are part of our everyday lives. That doesn’t sound like a God Who thinks us worthless. There are many stories in the Bible relating people in their old age (much older than any of us live today) who were called to work for the Kingdom.
We are worthy. We are necessary. We were placed here on this earth to live out a holy purpose. We may not ever know what good we sowed during our earthly lives until God reveals this. The best thing we can do is trust in God’s Word. To know that God is Who He says He is, that God can do what He says He can do, that we are who God says we are, that we can do all things through Christ, and that God’s Word is alive and working in us. Lifting my cup of tea with a reminder that you are beautiful, a masterpiece created by God, and you are a necessary part of the Kingdom.
