Connect With Your Purpose – Beloved Women – February 26, 2020
READ: “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.” (John 10:10 ESV)
TODAY’S ENCOURAGEMENT: Rick Warren’s book, “The Purpose Driven Life” has sold over 34 million copies. It has been translated into over 85 languages. Purpose is essential to living a satisfying life that is true to our core values.
Jesus was very clear about his purpose. In Mark 1:35-39, Simon and others were looking for Jesus. When they found Jesus, He told them, “we must go to the next towns, so that I may preach there also, for that is why I came.” (Mark 1:38 ESV)
Everything Jesus did while on earth flowed from his purpose. He offered abundant life to all. Distractions or other people’s expectations did not bother him. His purpose included seeking and saving the lost (Luke 19:1-10), preaching and teaching, healing the sick, feeding the hungry, dying on the cross for our sins (Matthew 26:26-29), and reconciling us to God. You and I were created for a purpose which includes glorifying God.
We don’t have to wait until eternity to experience an abundant life in Jesus. If we believe, we have access to His abundant joy, peace, hope, love, and faithfulness now. Do you know your purpose? Connecting with your purpose will help you live a satisfying life that honors God.
PRAY: Lord, You are the architect of my life. Help me connect with my purpose so I may fulfill Your plans for my life. Thank You for giving me access to Your abundant life now and in eternity. In Jesus Christ’s Name, I pray. Amen.
REFLECT: Pray and ask God to show you your purpose and help you connect with his plans for your life.
