Why do you exist? It’s a fundamental question, but we too often find ourselves asking, ‘what is my purpose?’ God has called us with a holy calling, to live life as if he were coming back today. But what is it that God has called us to do/be?
We have been in this series called, “Creed: What do you believe?” We’ve looked at God the Father and learned that nothing is too hard for him. Whatever we go through in life, we can be assured that God is in control and is a perfect God. He is our Father and wants to bring heaven on earth.
Nothing is too difficult for him. Because we have placed our trust and faith in Jesus Christ, we have been given the most precious gift, life. The question we must come to terms with… Who do you say Jesus Christ is? The bible has one continuous message of God giving us a path back to him through his Son, Jesus.
That’s why the Apostle Paul said in Philippians 2:9; “Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name.”
When we exalt Jesus in our daily lives and give him priority status, something happens within our heart. We become molded into his Kingdom. Our lives are joined to him and he becomes our spouse.
It’s all about Jesus.
So, what does this have to do with the question above; what is my purpose?
When we give Jesus priority status he imparts into our spirit a mission. That mission is not only to serve him as Lord of our life but to proclaim his fame among the nations.
Jesus gave us a command, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all…” This the central part of what it means to be a Christ-follower. It’s our responsibility to declare in our areas of influence that Jesus is God and loved us so much that he died to give us life.
When we declare, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God”, people will take notice that we have found our life’s purpose in Christ and ask us… “What’s my purpose?”
