Created for Glory

Check out my roommate Francisco's myspace page and listen to his rhymes...

When I hear Francisco rap, my soul beams with delight as the glorious perfections of my Father are displayed in and through these gifts and talents that He has bestowed upon this brother of mine. I think to myself, "This is what he was created for." This music is a large part of those unique, God-assigned "good works, which God prepared beforehand, that [he] should walk in them (Ephesians 2:10)", for which he was created in Christ Jesus. This truth is magnified in the fact that as I listen to Francisco, I know that I could never do what he does. Not because I'm not good enough. The truth is, he isn't good enough either. But because that's not what my Father created me for. He created me to display His glory in certain ways. And He created Francisco to display it in others. These are the gifts of God, dispensed according to His own good pleasure.

"...bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the end of the earth, everyone who is called by my name, whom I created for my glory, whom I formed and made (Isaiah 43:7)."

Oh, the wonder of our infinitely glorious Father who created us to collectively be a collage of His infinite perfections!
