“But my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus—the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God” (Acts 20:24 NLT).


The apostle Paul reminded his friends from Ephesus of the calling he had on his life from Jesus. Even though he knew that suffering and jail awaited him, he was determined to fulfill his life purpose of telling others the Good News about God’s wonderful grace. Protecting his life was not his primary concern. Preaching the gospel was. Finishing the work that Jesus had assigned to him was what gave his life meaning and worth.
Have you learned to find your self worth in Jesus? What work has Jesus assigned to you? His assignments to us are as various as our spiritual gifting, but they all have one thing in common–– telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God!
PRAYER: Dear Father, thank You that You not only called us to Yourself in Christ Jesus, but You called us to one another and to the nations. Help us to find our life’s purpose and self-worth in doing the work Christ has assigned to each of us. Whatever our calling, help us to always have the Good News of God’s wonderful grace on our lips. In Jesus’ name, amen.
