WE ARE ORDAINED FOR THE SPECIAL ASSIGNMENT

...assuming, by the way, that you know God gave me the special responsibility of extending his grace to you Gentiles (Ephesians 3:2)
One day when Jesus was teaching His disciples about the parable of the lost sheep He told them that there is more joy in heaven when one sinner repents than over ninety-nine just (righteous) people who needs no repentance (John 15:7). Jesus was basically teaching them the secret of making God to be happy. If your father is pleased with you, he thinks of good things for you, and because he has power and knowledge to access the resources, he acquires the best on your behalf without you being aware.
Jesus always mentioned the will of His Father and not his will (John 6:38). He therefore received the reward of the Father (Phil 2:9). God declared Him as His beloved Son in whom He is well pleased (Matt.3:17). Jesus knew the key to open His Father's heart, our same Father, to serve the world and not to be served (Matthew. 20:28).
Paul in our opening scripture affirms that God has given us a special assignment or responsibility to extend the grace of God to the world. To tell the untold. To make someone's life better of. To give more to others and less to ourselves. This is our special assignment, to change people's lives and introduce them to the everlasting joy of the Lord.
If we do this God will reward us the same way because we are joint heirs with Christ, He will exalt us and make our names great above all names on earth (Rom 8:17). Your fame and power is not in your material possessions but in fulfilling the will of the Father, the special assignment to win the lost at all cost(Genesis 12:3).
Dear Lord Jesus, I thank you for this revelation knowledge. I avail myself for a special assignment. I am a vessel of honour, use me to the best of my ability. Award every available grace to me to perform and successfully accomplish all my Kingdom tasks to the glory of God and not unto men in Jesus' name. Amen.
