It would be so wonderful if every Christian could grasp the concept of this picture.
Jesus died on the cross for our sin and returned to the Father so He could be our intercessor. Then the Holy Spirit was sent to inhabit the life of every Christian so that He could lead and guide us in the right direction.
God has given us all gifts that He wants us to use for His Glory, but it is up to each one to walk in obedience to Him. We all have different strengths and weaknesses, and God intended it that way. He never wants us to think that our spiritual gift pales in comparison to the one of someone else.
Together we as Christians make up the Body of Christ, and we are the ones God has chosen to carry forth His Work.
You are very important to God, and no other person can fill your shoes. Someone else might can do the job you have been called to do, but they will never be able to do it exactly like you. God is counting on you to be obedient and do your part in carrying forth His Work.
Be a true part of the Body of Christ by letting God use you in whatever way He chooses. It is much better to do a small thing that is completely in His Will than to accomplish a huge thing that He never told you to do, even if you feel you are a success in the eyes of man.
Choose instead to be a success in the eyes of God.
