Break the Mold

Posted: September 24, 2012 in Uncategorized

Perhaps you have heard the expression, ‘They broke the mold when they made her/him.” What they mean is that the individual is one of a kind, they are unique. Well, Psalm 139 says that is true of every single person. God intricately designed each one of us uniquely, and He created us to bear His image in a way that only we can within our uniquenss. Of all the 104 billion people to ever inhabit this planet, no one has ever been like you. Scientists have verified this with the awareness of our DNA.

Of course, sin destroyed the perfect image of God in us, which brought about the Cross. When we trust in Christ, God goes to work to restore His image in us (Rom. 8:29). In the spiritual war that we encounter, the unholy axis of power (Satan, the world, the flesh) continually tries to steal our identity and squeeze us into its mold. Thus, Rom. 12:2 tells us, “Do not let the world squeeze you into its mold.”

It is imperative for the believer to know their identity “in Christ.” You are a blood bought child of the King. You are uniquely His, bought at the price of His precious blood. Redeemed to bear His image uniquely to a lost world, and to all creation.

WHen you struggle with this, remember, “He chose you in Christ before the foundation of the world.” (Eph. 1:4). Before the very first star was breathed into existence by our God, He chose us. Before He created Adam and Eve and placed them in the garden, He chose us. Before temptation and sin, God chose us. Before 13 chromosones from your mother connected to 13 chromosones from your father, God chose you. It has absolutely nothing to do with personal merit. It has everything to do with God’s amazing love and passion for you. You are chosen to bear His image in the unique way that only you can.
