Before others, everyone aspires to be a good person. Thinking about being a good person may be quite simple to say, but who can think and say, “I don’t want to be a good person.” More than six million people live on the planet at any given time. Everyone ought to have heard the Good News if they wanted to be an honest and decent person. Because they were unaware that Jesus can give them eternal life, people in the world struggle greatly to recognize the good people. Because evil still exists in the world today, even those who have heard the gospel have a hard time being good people.

The Bible instructs us, “Finally, all of you, be like-minded and sympathetic, love as brothers, be tender-heart and humble” (1 Peter 3:1). 3:8). As a result, you have a role to play in introducing Jesus to more people. Regardless of where you are or where you are in the world, God is still guiding you there.

It doesn’t matter if you are serving the Lord your God where he has placed you—across the street or the ocean—as long as you are making use of your talents and skills. Following Jesus’ example will help you to adjust if you are traveling to a place where the population is different from yours, and you will hopefully have a positive experience. You will accomplish your objectives in this way.

Just Be You

Sometimes as I am walking down the street, I ponder great heroes who have shown themselves in various guises. I looked up to people like Terry Law, R. W. Shambach, the Apostle Paul, Smith Wigglesworth, Kathryn Kuhlman, and others are examples. As they begin to consider all possibilities, they experience encouragement rather than discouragement. I believed that I would never be able to preach like Shambach or even D.L. Moody for the rest of my life or be like them in any other way. But at least I could try, and trying is never a bad thing. “For even hereto were ye called: for Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that we should follow his steps,” the apostle Peter once stated” (1 Peter 2:21).

We can envision how drastically different our lives would be. Our God uses the best of everything to create us. That is how we can appreciate the beauty of the world around us. In Psalm 46:10, God commands, “Be still, and know that I am God.” He understands that in order to clearly hear his voice and receive divine guidance, we must experience stillness. Imagine how much more adept we would be at identifying our true life purpose. In our busy schedules, we occasionally need to take a breather and even pause. Your strength, according to the Bible’s Isaiah 30:15, is found in confidence and quietness.1

Although I don’t believe we need another apostle in this place, we do need to emulate him. Similarly, our God exactly raises us to serve the function for which He called each of us. We are the ones who must complete the tasks at hand right now. If the All-Powerful calls us to carry out his own work, the call will be so passionate that it may cause our hearts to burn from the inside out. So, embody who God created us to be and fulfill the tasks He has given us. All types of people are needed by God.

Pursuing Your Life Dream author Eastman Curtis wrote in his book that “you cannot put any pressure on a broken foot, and you cannot do that with someone unfaithful. A tooth that is rotten or has broken will snap or crack if you start to apply pressure to it. You cannot lean on an unfaithful person, and man, does it hurt. God seeks partners in which He can have faith. He won’t give you greater things if He notices that you are unfaithful in the little things. You must fulfill the calling that God has placed on your life. Don’t try to carry out someone else’s duties. That is not how it operates. You have a gift that is solely God’s. For you, it is intended.”

God bless you!
