Destiny by Tony Evans

Many Christians are living with feelings of insignificance because they cannot see how they relate to the much larger, comprehensive puzzle of God’s purpose. You may be a fancy piece, a pretty piece, a handsome piece, or a well-crafted piece, but until you connect to the greater meaning for which you were created, you are just a piece without a picture. And as we have seen, this is the greater meaning: God has created us all to bring Him the greatest glory and achieve the maximum expansion of His kingdom through the impact of our good works. Good works are biblically authorized activities that benefit people for time and eternity and that give the credit to God. If you are a Christian, whatever you are called to do will achieve both those things. God’s kingdom is His comprehensive rule over all of His creation. Fulfilling your destiny includes doing the kind of things that manifest the presence of God to a greater degree. Every Christian is a part of God’s kingdom and a piece in God’s puzzle of live. Advancing God’s kingdom isn’t only for professional ministers or evangelists. It is for everyone…That means that everything you do has now become kingdom activity, even if you once considered it to be secular. There is no distinction between the secular and the sacred when you are a kingdom-minded person. Everything is sacred for those who are living underneath the overarching rule of the King in His kingdom.”

– Dr. Tony Evans (Destiny: Let God Use You Like He Made You, pg. 64-65)
