A LIFE OF PURPOSE
Philippians 3: 13-14
“Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: forgetting what is behind and straining towards what is ahead. I press on towards the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenwards in Christ Jesus.”
Your birth was no mistake or mishap, and your life is no fluke of nature. You were planned for by God even before you showed up. God determined the family you are to be born in, the tribe, the exact location and even the times (Acts 17:26). God did so in order for you and I may be able to live out our divine purpose. God prepared the Garden of Eden before He brought Adam and Eve on scene. All the days you and I are meant to live here on earth were ordained by God (Ps 139:16). You are here on earth to glorify God. You are here for a divine purpose.
To live a life of purpose you need to know the following:
- It all starts with God
- You are not an Accident
- You are made to Last Forever
- See Life from God’s view
- Life is a Temporary Assignment
Life lived without a purpose is a tragedy; it is a lost life. Apostle Paul lived his life with a purpose. His life had meaning; was simple and focused. How are you living your life? Do you know why you are here on earth? A purposeful life is a motivated life. It is a life that prepares for eternity because this world is not our final destination.
Are you preparing for eternity with God?
Arise and Shine
