You did not choose me,
but I chose you and appointed you.
In Romans 12 Paul said, “we have different gifts,” and in 1 Corinthians 12 he teaches that each of us has our designated niche in the church.
Your gift is matched to the work God prepared in advance for you to do (Eph. 2:10). He envisioned your work before time; then at a specific time brought you into the world to do it.
Your reserved seat in the kingdom is not a popularly-elected position, but a God-appointed one.
At the time of Paul’s conversion he was informed that his assignments were things “that God has determined for you to do” (Acts 22:10 TEV).
Be content with your gifts and your niche, not ranking your assignments as either less important or more important than the work of others. But essential.
Everyone has a kingdom gift.
Discovering and using it is the trick.
