WHY AM I HERE?
I know I cannot answer this question fully for each individual but I can help point you towards finding the answer. I also pray that you, as a Follower of Christ, would want to know why you are here. God has some great words for each of us to consider on this matter.
A few things can be stated clearly to help you take some answers off any list you might make.
You are not here to:
– Find temporal fulfllment
– To simply survive
– Be defeated
– To be confused
– To lose the battle
You are here to:
– Fulfill a purpose which can only be fulfilled though Christ
– To make a difference
– To glorify Christ
– To demonstrate through our lives that Jesus is worth following
– To discover God’s purpose for us and go for it
To accomplish God’s purpose(s) for our lives, we must discover what they are. Please note that God has a purpose which is personal to you. In other words, God does not want you to be me… He wants you to be you with Him living inand through you. To make this happen, we need to make sure our priorities are in order, If we do not, the busyness of life can overtake the priorities we need to be following and the battle to fulfill God’s plan for our lives becomes that much more difficlult.
One of the purposes for our Friday School and Smalll Groups is to help each believer discover and fulfill their God given purpose(s).
Living your life on the journey to discover His purpose for you is when God chips away those things that hinder. Take the next 10 minutes and watch the video below. Before you watch it, ask God to speak personally to you about you and not about others.
I know what my God purpose is and all of my life (good and bad) has molded me to be where I am today. Everything prior to EBCI was designed by our God to prepare me for EBCI. Thank you all for being an important part of my life.
