God Created You to Help Others

Now you belong to him … in order that you might be useful in the service of God. Romans 7:4 (TEV)

When you use your God-given abilities to help others, you are fulfilling your calling.

Regardless of your job or career, you are called to full-time Christian service. A “non-serving Christian” is a contradiction in terms.

The Bible says, “He saved us and called us to be his own people, not because of what we have done, but because of his own purpose” (2 Timothy 1:9 TEV).

Peter adds, “You were chosen to tell about the excellent qualities of God, who called you” (1 Peter 2:9 GW).

Growing up, you may have thought that being called by God was something only missionaries, pastors, nuns, and other full-time church workers experienced, but the Bible says every Christian is called to service (Ephesians 4:4 –14; see also Romans 1:6–7; 8:28–30; 1 Corinthians 1:2, 9, 26; 7:17; Philippians 3:14; 1 Peter 2:9; 2 Peter 1:3).

When you use your God-given abilities to help others, you are fulfilling your calling. The Bible says, “Now you belong to him … in order that you might be useful in the service of God” Romans 7:4 TEV).
