Searching - Part One - Why Purpose Matters
Everything was created through him and for him.
Colossians 1:15–16 (NLT)
Furthermore, because we are united with Christ, we have received an inheritance from God, for he chose us in advance, and he makes everything work out according to his plan.
Ephesians 1:11 (NLT)
For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
Ephesians 2:10 (NIV)
WHY PURPOSE MATTERS
- Knowing your purpose gives MEANING to your life.
- Knowing your purpose SIMPLIFIES your life.
- Knowing your purpose FOCUSES your life.
- Knowing your purpose MOTIVATES your life.
- Knowing your purpose prepares you for ETERNITY.
God has a purpose for you - but it’s not ABOUT YOU.
God has a purpose for you - and it’s MOSTLY about what He’s DOING IN YOU.
God has a purpose for you - and if you SURRENDER to it, he will FULFILL it.
WHY ARE WE HERE?
To bring Him GLORY.
For I have made them for my glory. It was I who created them…
You cannot ARRIVE at your purpose if you BEGIN with yourself.
