Greatness is in everyone!
In Genesis 12:1-3, God promised to bless Abraham and give him a great name which has the capacity to bless and be a blessing to countless others. When your name is known, people know you and what you stand for.
According to Galatians 3:13, although not direct (biological) descendants of Abraham, we are spiritual ones through Christ Jesus. Greatness is part of Abraham and anyone joined to or associated with him should experience greatness. Jacob and Israel were Abraham’s descendants and their greatness was evident.
In Isaiah 51:1-2, Isaiah encouraged us to look at Abraham, our model for greatness. We need to think about ourselves and what we are evolving into. God wants us to picture ourselves in the light of Abraham and how he took him on the greatness journey.
The following are some big questions to ask oneself:
- What does it mean to be great?
- What is your definition of greatness?
- Do you want to be great?
God called us and the call of God on our lives is greatness. Greatness is coded into our DNA already; we just need to cooperate with God for it to manifest.
