If God has created you to be a rose, why would you think He wants to turn you into a lilac? The flower analogy is meant to expose a common flaw in our thinking when we try to discern the will of God for our lives. If you were born in a certain place with a specific set of natural traits and a definite kind of personality, maybe those - and not some special revelation - are indicators of how you can "blossom." That's how one Regular Joe was used of God, and he was used very mightily indeed. Today Pastor Jim takes us back to the book of Acts for a closer look at Barnabas.
