What’s the Big Deal about Your S.H.A.P.E.?

S.H.A.P.E. is a class that discusses the five things that make you, you. S.H.A.P.E. is the way God wired you for your life. Every area of your life is influenced by the way you’re shaped.

Spiritual gifts, Heart, Abilities, Personality, Experiences — these are the five things that make you, you.

In that combination of spiritual gifts, you have heart, passion, and interests. Why do you think you have those interests? Because God gave them to you. And if we all liked to do the same things, there would be a lot less accomplished in the world. So God made you unique, and there’s nobody else like you.

Why does this matter?

1. Because your S.H.A.P.E. reveals God’s purpose for you

The way you find out what God wants you to do with your life is to discover how he shaped you. But here’s the thing: God won’t force you to do his plan. God wants you to discover who you are in Him and His plan and purpose for your life.

2. Because your S.H.A.P.E. equips you to serve God

God has a life mission for you that nobody else on this planet can do. Maybe you’ve missed that mission. Maybe you’ve missed serving God. But you can start today to make the rest of your life the best of your life. God will never ask you to do anything in life that he hasn’t already given you the ability to do.

3. Because life is a test

If you’re a follower of Jesus, this life is preparation for the next life in Heaven. God says, “This is a test. I’m testing you to see what you will do with what you’ve been given on earth. Based on that, I will determine what I give you to do in Heaven for eternity.”

4. Because it shows God’s glory

When you use your S.H.A.P.E. and you do what God made you to do, it not only feels good, but it also makes God smile. Yes, God smiles when He looks down and sees you and me using the talents that He gave us for His glory.
