Our Use

Filed under: gender,God,Holy Spirit,Uncategorized — by ginrich @ 7:33 pm

Romans 9:20-21 20 But who are you, a human being, to talk back to God? “Shall what is formed say to the one who formed it, ‘Why did you make me like this?’” 21 Does not the potter have the right to make out of the same lump of clay some pottery for special purposes and some for common use?  (NIV)

Much is being debated about people who want to change the gender of their birth.  We read here we are not to argue or talk back to God.  He is the creator.  He chooses the gender of our birth.  Choosing to change our gender is like a slap in the face of God.  God places in each individual a specific purpose.  Our trying to change who we were born to be will produce a life of struggle against what God has chosen for us.  We can apply this to even more than gender.  Some want to be a different race.  Some want to look or sound different than they are.  We need to learn to accept with joy what God has created and seek to find His purpose in us as we walk through this life.  There is a saying, “bloom where you are panted.”  We need to learn to bloom as we were created.  Each one of us is the “only me God has” and no one else can ever take our place.  It is a joy learning to meet the real “me” as we look in the face of our Savior.  Our “use” is in the hands of our Creator.  Let us fulfill our “use” through Him through the power of His Holy Spirit within us.
