Those who make themselves clean from all those evil things, will be used for special purposes, because they are dedicated and useful to their Master, ready to be used for every good deed. (2 Tim 2:21)
God is pleased when we become useful to Him, but He cares about us much more than about what we can do for Him. God does NOT want to “use” us. He only wants to love us.
God delights in us and yearns to walk with us, to be with us, to see us become fully alive, fully our own self.
Your worth has already been established. You are worth more than what you can produce. To God, you are precious and absolutely worth dying for.
Jesus called us friends. We are co-labourers with Him. Not spatulas 🙂
