The purpose of life

Standard

Eph 2:10 ‘For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.

This is ‘poieema’ in Greek, lit – ‘An artistic work in fabric’ from which we get the word ‘poem’ from. God is an artist making your life rhyme like a poem.

We are created with purpose. God has plans for us. We are not a collection of germs randomly mutating without divine purpose.

God is an artist!

Our purpose in life is ‘good works’ or ‘acts of kindness’. Instead of trying to figure out what our purpose and calling is we should just simply get involved in helping people and our purpose, calling and gifting will easily be discovered.

See you in church!

 

Kindness

Standard

2 Sam 9:1 ‘Now David said, “Is there still anyone who is left of the house of Saul, that I may show him kindness for Jonathan’s sake?”

David searches for ANYONE of his former enemy’s house, so he can bless him, not kill him to remove any further threat or to take revenge!

Love searches for people to bless! What are we searching for? For ourselves? For self centred goals, or to bring blessing to others.

Saul tried to kill David time and again, and hunted him down, making him a fugitive and now David intends to shower generous love over his relatives.

We discover our purpose in this life when we determine to help and bless other people.

Because we are ‘IN CHRIST’ we will be favored by God. It is because of Him that we are accepted blessed and highly favored!

See you in Church!
