Why on Earth am I on Earth?

Have you ever wondered for what purpose God created you?
Have you ever had someone tell you that you are gifted at something?
Have you ever immediately loved to do something?
Were you good at that something?
Were you bad at that something?
What do you think that you will be when you get older?
A police man?
A Doctor?
A Basketweaver?
A Garbage Man?
A Janitor?
Many times we think that certain jobs, tasks, or chores are gross, and nasty!
Many times we do not like to be told what to do, or wish that we were the ones who got to tell people what to do.
This is Matthew Osborne from Columbus Ohio
Who is Matthew Osborne you may ask?
Tell the story of Matthew Osborne:
Romans 12:3–9 NLT
Because of the privilege and authority God has given me, I give each of you this warning: Don’t think you are better than you really are. Be honest in your evaluation of yourselves, measuring yourselves by the faith God has given us. Just as our bodies have many parts and each part has a special function, so it is with Christ’s body. We are many parts of one body, and we all belong to each other. In his grace, God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well. So if God has given you the ability to prophesy, speak out with as much faith as God has given you. If your gift is serving others, serve them well. If you are a teacher, teach well. If your gift is to encourage others, be encouraging. If it is giving, give generously. If God has given you leadership ability, take the responsibility seriously. And if you have a gift for showing kindness to others, do it gladly. Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them. Hate what is wrong. Hold tightly to what is good.
How do you know that you purpose is?
Do you know what this thing is?
Matthew 3:13–15 NLT
Then Jesus went from Galilee to the Jordan River to be baptized by John. But John tried to talk him out of it. “I am the one who needs to be baptized by you,” he said, “so why are you coming to me?” But Jesus said, “It should be done, for we must carry out all that God requires.” So John agreed to baptize him.
