Let me just say: “I am LOVING Rick Warren’s What On Earth Am I Here For?” In my opinion, it just keeps getting better each and every day.
Over the last 2 days (Day 30 and 31), Warren has unpacked this statement: “You were shaped to serve God.”
To help readers (and all followers of Jesus) discover how God shaped them, he gives five biblical suggestions – appropriately using the acrostic S-H-A-P-E.
Seriously, you will.
I believe if you pursue these, along with honestly asking yourself these questions – you will be closer than ever than living out the purpose for which God distinctly made you.
The meaning of SHAPE:
S – Unwrapping your Spiritual Gifts
H– Listening to Your Heart
A – Applying Your Abilities
P – Using Your Personality
E – Employing Your Experience
I think he is exactly right in what he suggests – and as only he can, Warren masterfully interweaves biblical texts to show this IS God’s will!
In addition, you can find as many resources as you would like to supplement what he says about your peculiar SHAPE by clicking here.
Our heavenly Father does NOT want us to wander around aimlessly living hollow, shallow, and purposeless lives. Understanding your God-given gift(s) and peculiar SHAPE will bring fulfillment to your soul and make you the intentional Jesus follower you so want to be.
