Living with Purpose

Proverbs 19.pngListen to advice and accept discipline and at the end you will be counted among the wise. Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails. What a person desires is unfailing love better to be poor than a liar. The fear of the Lord leads to life, that one rests content, untouched by trouble.             Proverbs 19:20-23

Living on purpose is the only way to really live, everything else is just existing. Most people struggle with different issues one is who am I, do I truly matter, and why was I born for and what is my purpose is. One way to find the answer of your question is to seek God out, spend time with him through his words and in prayer and believe when he is ready he will tell you what your purpose is here on earth. Once you know what God wants you to do, the blessings comes in actually doing it. Our life purpose is to worship Christ with our whole heart, serve him with our shape, fellowship with his family, grow like him in character, and fulfill his mission in the world so he receives glory. My life purpose is to be a member of Christ’s family, a model of his character, a minister of his grace, a messenger of his word, and a magnifier of his glory. My life purpose is to love Christ, grow in Christ, share Christ, and serve Christ through his church. and to lead my family and others to do the same. In other words Jesus tells us in the book of Matthew 28:19-20 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age. Jesus has commission all of his disciples including you and me, to share his love with others, to walk humbly with our God. To make disciples for his kingdom, my friend we as Christians are all expected to do this how you may ask, by sharing your faith with someone today it is that simply.  We all need to continue to become the hands and feet of Christ while we still live here on earth, when others sees us they truly see the “Great I Am” through all of us and in this way they’ll know we are Christians by our love.

Grace and Peace to You My Friends

A New Heart

Ezekiel 36.pngI will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you. I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws.                     Ezekiel 36:26

Therefore if any person is in Christ, the new creation has come. The old has gone, the new is here!                                                     2 Corinthians 5:17

 

Jesus tells us to come just as we are with all of our short comings, and he will give us a new heart and put a new spirit within you and me. He is aware of the many little different things that may changes the beauty of our hearts. He wants us to Trust him to do what we are unable to do, remove the stony bits one by one. Do not expect this work in you or me to be painless. Heart surgery is serious, and it always involves pain. Many of the hard things you have experienced were, unknown to him. Jesus skillful operations on our heart. When we go through those very difficult times we need to look up to him with a smile and thank him for the renewal that he is working within us. This act of faith does not instantly stop you or me from suffering, but it does lend meaning to our pain. Marvel at the wonder of being a new creation grafted into Jesus–the Messiah. You and me are forever set free from the condemning law of sin and death. I can rejoice in this glorious truth even while I am suffering because I am not alone. Since God our Creator of all that is, and has made me in his image, I have a wealth of creative powers within me. I need to strive to look at my situation from a fresh perspective, eager to collaborate with Christ as he is making those necessary changes within me and even you. Through God the Lord of the universe, he desire to work in partnership with us. As we say yes to this sacred adventure, I know that in time I will become the person that God have design me to be as I continue to Praise the “Great I Am”
