“God has made us what we are. In Christ Jesus, God made us to do good works, which God planned in advance for us to live our lives doing.” (Ephesians 2:10, NCV)
To be effective CONVERTERLATORS, we need to know how we have been individually designed and the purpose for which we have been designed.
There are all kinds of tools for building a house, including hammers, saws, and screwdrivers, just to name a few. Each one of these has been designed for a specific purpose. It is not effective to try to use a saw as a hammer or a screwdriver as a saw.
First, we must realize that we are God’s workmanship. He has made us.
“Yet you, Lord, are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand.” (Isaiah 64:8, NIV)
“He fashions their hearts individually; He considers all their works.” (Psalm 33:15, NKJV)
Our purpose for this world is to do good works—specific works that God planned for us a long time ago!
Second, we discover just what kind of CONVERTERLATOR MODALITY we are. Then will be able to determine the kind of work God wants us to do.
Third, God presents us with opportunities for us to engage in as we seek to CONVERTERLATE the perishable items of this world into the imperishable values of the kingdom.
“Looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works. Speak these things, exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no one despise you.” (Titus 2:13–15, NKJV)
Today, ask yourself:
Have I discovered the spiritual gifts God has given me? Am I CONVERTERLATING them into helping advance his kingdom?
