He did this to prepare all God's people for the work of Christian service, in order to build up the body of Christ.
God has created me to do Him some definite service;
He has committed some work to me which He has not committed to another.
I have my mission - I may never know it in this life, but I shall be told in the next.
I am a link in a chain, a bond of connection between persons.
He has not created me for naught.
I shall do good, I shall do his work;
I shall be a preacher of Truth in my own place, while not intending it, if I do but keep His commandments and serve Him in my calling.
Therefore my God, I will put myself without reserve into your hands.
Blessed John Henry Newman
