WELCOME! It is Week #18 of our 2021 year-long Bible Journey with each of you going from Cover to Cover in the Scriptures. Bonnie & I are hosting this small group online for all who want an in-depth overview of Sacred history, Contextual background, Sacred geography, Vital Bible chapters, Vital theological doctrines, the Key Attributes of God, and all the Mega-themes of the Bible. It was most often here, in this study that I saw the students in my small group finally connect the dots. They found that they could finally feel the reality that they were uniquely designed by God for a PURPOSE! For most of them–this hour we shared was a TURNING POINT. They knew God had designed them, planned their course, and gave them EVERYTHING needed to succeed–all they had to do was trust & obey. It is our prayer as we filmed this class that each of you come FACE-TO-FACE with your DESIGNER, CREATOR, FRIEND & GUIDE today as you watch and respond to HIM!
We Uniquely Bear the Fingerprints of God
Each of us is built to a perfect and intricate set of plans, engineered by God Himself. Part of the distinction that sets humans apart from all other living things is what God’s Word describes as “the image of God”. Within every cell of our physical body is a set of those Divine Fingerprints called our DNA. The Human Genome is a wonder of precise engineering that laid down everything about your physical body. And once regenerated by salvation, we have another unique set of plans made up of God’s gifts and callings that exactly corresponds to how God designed our unchangeable features. Our response to the spiritual DNA God places within us at salvation, combined with the physical abilities and design of our bodies makes such a wonderful life for all who know God.
So each one of us was perfectly designed by God for His glory; and each aspect of our existence that we had no choice in, is a reflection of God’s power: who we are, where we were born, how we look, all of our imperfections and weaknesses, and countless other details—are all part of God’s marvelous design.
Each of us is the handiwork of God, like spiritual snowflakes, no two exactly alike.
Each of us is like rare and precious jewels, no one is worthless or unimportant in God’s plan.
Today, every man, woman, and child gathered here, we’re specially designed by God for Divine Purposes. Your intellect, your giftedness, your abilities, and most of all who you are as a man, woman, young man, or a young woman is the strategic resources God has given you to serve and please Him. Now comes the challenge.
