Purpose For Living Jan 02 2010
"He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life." - 1 John 5:12
What is your purpose for living? Have you ever taken time to pause in the rat race of life and figure out why you're in it?
I recommend developing a life purpose statement. A man once told me his purpose statement was to "Get all you can; can all you get; and sit on the can!" I hope that when you develop your purpose statement, it'll be more than that.
Don't be shortsighted, focusing on this life alone. Keep eternity in mind. God created all of us for a purpose. What's yours?
Here's a hint. Knowing God has put you on this earth for a purpose becomes clear when you get to know the person of Jesus Christ. With Him, it's amazing how all things become clear. Otherwise, you end up like the masses, too busy to take time to know why you're here and too lost to know where you're going.
Are you racing through life going nowhere fast?
Stop for a second. Look to God in Christ and discover the purpose of your life.
