If you want to complete a job safely and efficiently you need to use the right tool. Every tool was created to complete a specific function. You were created by God with a specific task in mind. 

I. We are reshaped by God: God is molding us through our experiences and reshaping us so we can be used for His kingdom.
II. We rest on Christ: A building rests on a corner stone and as our faith rests on Jesus. If we rely on our own strength we will ultimately fail.
III. We reflect the Lord: The way we respond to crisis, and our everyday struggles, shows where we have placed our faith. If we have faith in Jesus it will become evident in our lives.
