Faith is not mass-produced

February 21, 2017

 

No attempt at mass-produced faith can survive in the long run. There isn't a 'one-size-fits-all' spiritual recipe that all of us should follow to the T to serve God 'correctly.' Yes, there is one calling that is valid for everyone – to serve the Trinity with all our heart and all our love. And yes, to love our neighbours as we love ourselves, just like Jesus teaches us in Matthew 22. And yet, none of us are photocopies of each other. We do not need to look or sound or act alike. We, as Jesus' modern-day disciples, should stay uniquely true to the Bible and faithful to Him. We should be relevant in various ways to the people amongst whom we live, by using the talents and skills that God built into our lives. Only one of each of us have ever lived. Nowhere on Earth will you find a hidden copy of yourself. This is why we should also serve God as unique individuals. If we don't, we will be reduced to second-rate versions of the someone else we are trying to imitate.
