1120th -- Message On Being Useful


The greatest thing that we can do with our life is to make it useful. 
Many times we believe the lie that we can't make a difference in our life 
and in the lives of others because of our past mistakes, failures and 
shortfalls. Instead of trusting in God's forgiveness and renewal, we 
wallow in self-pity and self-doubt. What we must quickly realize is that 
our life has unlimited potential when we quit focusing on our past and 
focus more on the beautiful, bright and limitless future that is before 
us. We can do so much good where so many are impacted for the better and 
by our simple actions those we've helped will also become inspired to 
carry the baton of being world changers themselves.

How can you and I make a difference? We do so by our actions. We see a 
problem and we do something to relieve it. We become proactive instead of 
being inactive. We use the gifts, talents and abilities that God has 
given us and we impart them into bringing relief where others are 
struggling. We use our life as a manner of service for the sole purpose 
of seeing others become better, wiser and stronger than they ever thought 
they could be. We can use our hurts, our setbacks, our shortfalls and the 
lessons that we learned during those difficult times for our betterment 
and for the betterment of others when we take the initiative to be helpful 
in elevating them higher than they are right now.

See your life as significant and know that you have the ability to be a 
world changer. Never believe the lie that you are used up and done with. 
As long as you have breath within your being you are a long way from being 
finished from being a blessing to others. When you believe in yourself as 
God believes in you miracles can happen. Your life can start a ripple 
effect in the lives of others where multitudes will be impacted and changed
for the better. See your gifts, your talents and your abilities as assets 
that you possess that can be used in helping others to stand up higher 
than they stand right now. Volunteer your time, teach in an area that you 
excel in, encourage someone to try again, elevate others, inspire them and 
show them that they do have potential no matter their past shortcomings.

Let us use our life for good so that multitudes can be impacted, changed 
and inspired to do the same for their fellow man. Let us leave a legacy 
that will live on long after we are gone and with our words, actions and 
deeds let us follow the most important commandment of the Lord Jesus 
Christ who tells us to love our neighbor as we love ourselves. A life 
well lived is a life lived in service to others. Let us remember this 
simple truth and let our life be useful to others this day and every day 
that we are lucky enough to be alive.
(Romans 12:3) (Galatians 6:2-4) (1 John 4:20-21)

Read and meditate on these scriptures:

Philippians 2:3-7 “Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in 
lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not 
every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. 
Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the 
form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself 
of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in 
the likeness of men.”

1 John 3:17-18 “But whoso hath this world’s good, and seeth his brother 
have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth 
the love of God in him? My little children, let us not love in word, 
neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.”

Colossians 3:23-25 “And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, 
and not unto men; Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of 
the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ. But he that doeth wrong 
shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of 

John 13:12-15 “So after He had washed their feet, and had taken His 
garments, and was set down again, He said unto them,
Know ye what I have 
done to you? Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am. If 
I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash 
one another’s feet. For I have given you an example, that ye should do as 
I have done to you.”

Romans 13:10-14 “Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is 
the fulfilling of the law. And that, knowing the time, that now it is high 
time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we 
believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore 
cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. Let 
us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in 
chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. But put ye on the 
Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the 
lusts thereof.”

All of these scriptures can be found in the King James Version Bible.
