This post is not for those who always finish first.
This post is for those who don’t believe they have something to give.
It is for those who think they won’t make a difference.
It is for those who believe they are nothing special.

Listen. You have purpose. A place. A unique offering for the world.

Just like you need every part of your body, God’s body (your church, your community, your family, your school) needs every part of you.

“Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it”.
(1 Corinthians 12:7-11



What’s the heaviest weight you can lift?
Schoolbag (6kg avg.)
Gold bar (12kg. avg.)
Teacher’s desk (90kg avg.)

The weight of our guilt is too heavy for anyone to carry. You were not created to live with guilt.

“He (Jesus) personally carried our sins in his body on the cross so that we can be dead to sin and live for what is right. By his wounds you are healed” (1 Peter 2:24 –

Only Jesus can carry the weight of your sin. Give your sin to him now and believe in faith that you are forgiven.



That little ‘low battery’ sign on your phone which always pops up at the worst time is also a reminder that everything we create runs down or comes to an end. Sure, you can charge the battery but eventually it’s useless.

You are different. God didn’t create you to come to an end. God created you to live for eternity.

“Jesus said to her, ‘I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in me will live even if he diesDo you believe this?'” (John 11:25-26

Knowing that you will live forever, should change how you approach today.



Stop the taxi. Get off the treadmill. Put down the phone. Switch off the Play Station. Close the laptop. Stop studying (for now).

You were not created to be busy all the time. You were created for rest.

“Then, because so many people were coming and going that they did not even have a chance to eat, he (Jesus) said to them, ‘Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest'”.
(Mark 6:31 –

The gift of rest is to remind you that you are not just a human ‘doing’ but a human-being.
