Is God’s passion your purpose?
August 12, 2009
Today I’d like to ask you a very direct question.
Do you care more about money than you care about God?
I know that’s not a very comfortable question to answer. But I wanted to ask you this today because it’s so easy to lose sight of God… especially when you’re pursuing worldly things.
But think back over your life. Can you remember a time when you had less money, but more of God? Your pocketbook might have been leaner, but your soul was fuller.
Those feelings were there because affluence is never the answer to anything. Jesus says that even if you and I could have the world and everything in it, our souls would still not be satisfied.
And here’s why: Your soul was not made for this world. You were made for God. And you were designed to make God’s passion your purpose. And God’s passion is capturing souls for the Kingdom of heaven!
Now, you may be thinking that you’ll get around to it someday. Maybe when things slow down at work, then you’ll get focused on your faith. Or when you’re older and through partying, maybe then you’ll start living for God. But the more you neglect your soul, the colder it will grow toward the things of God.
Don’t let your love for Jesus wax cold. Purpose it in your heart to make God’s passion your purpose today!
YOU WERE DESIGNED TO MAKE GOD’S PASSION YOUR PURPOSE.
OUR THANKS TO YOU!
Do the words rested... peaceful... and refreshed describe you today? Or do the words stressed... rushed... and pressured better describe your way of life?
If you're like most Christians, you'd probably have to admit those last three words more accurately describe your life most of the time!
The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way... even when your life is one big pressure-cooker. And in my new book, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out, I'll show you why.
Based on the principles from Paul's letter to the Philippians and Psalm 23, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out will help you find true peace and rest in a world that is anything but peaceful and restful. It's the perfect "pause" button you need!
So please request your copy of Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out when you give online today! --Jack Graham
