If you have ever wondered what your purpose was in life, you are not alone.
Mankind has always asked this question.
We are created for meaning and purpose after the image of God who does everything with meaning and purpose.
- God’s purposes ultimately prevail.
We will never find our purpose in life outside of God who created us!
How can we find the real purpose that we are here for?
WE CAN FIND THE GREATEST MEANING IN LIFE IN BEING USED BY GOD FOR HIS PURPOSES
We were created for God’s purposes.
God was not created and does not exist for our purposes.
We are God’s instruments to be used for His purposes -
God saves us and we are created in Christ for good works -
Doing good works for God is always directed toward helping others.
Finding our purpose is more about God and others than it is about pleasing ourselves.
Jesus found His greatest fulfillment through being used to carry out the Father’s will.
Jesus knew His purpose and found fulfillment in pleasing the Father -
Jesus accomplished His purpose for God -
We will find no greater meaning than allowing God to use us to carry out His purposes.
WE CAN BE USED BY GOD FOR SPECIAL PURPOSES WHEN WE ACTIVELY SEEK TO BE HOLY
If we want to be used as an instrument of God we must not let anything get in the way of being Holy.
We will be used by God for special purposes if seek holiness through cleansing our lives of unrighteousness -
There are three things that are necessary to seek holiness
TURN away from wickedness (sin) -
2. RUN from evil desires -
3. PURSUE righteousness - ;
Being like Christ is our goal and Identity, we cannot pursue Christ while turning back to sin, it goes against who we are in Him.
When we submit to God’s purposes and plan for our lives we then find out who we are in Him!
