Maybe that’s why I like John Ortberg’s view of God’s handiwork:
“Disciples are handcrafted, not mass-produced. No wonder we get frustrated when we think that everyone is supposed to look like the pastor or the author or whoever is teaching us at the moment about spiritual growth. We learn differently, struggle with different sins, and relate to God in different ways.
When Jesus prayed for his disciples, he did not pray, “May they all
have identical devotional practices.” He prayed, “Father, may they be
one with you.” The main measure of your devotion to God is not
your devotional life. It is simply your life.
Trying to grow spiritually without taking who you are into account is like trying to raise children on an assembly line. If you train an 80-pound gymnast and a 300-pound linebacker exactly the same, you will end up with two, useless 190-pound people.”
How has God uniquely crafted you?
Where are you tempted to have an assembly-line approach to your relationship with Him?
