What’s Your Purpose?

What’s Your Purpose?

The Christian’s purpose is to promote God’s plan. Our purpose is to show others less of us and more of Him. That’s living on purpose with a purpose!

Rick Warren’s The Purpose-Driven Life has had an unbelievable run on the best-seller lists. Its appeal reminds us that believers and nonbelievers alike have a deep longing for a clear sense of purpose. We all want to know that our lives are involved in something worthwhile. Without a strong sense of calling and purpose, life is nothing more than routine busyness. Being a follower of Jesus gives us a distinct advantage when it comes to having a sense of purpose. Glorifying God means putting His character, His will, and His ways into action in all that we do. The apostle Paul reminded us that we “are being transformed into [Christ’s] image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord” (2 Cor. 3:18). The purpose of our lives is to let others see what God is like as they watch and experience His love through us. What a profound privilege it is to mirror God’s love, mercy, grace, justice, and righteousness to a world whose heart is “veiled” to God’s truth! (4:3-4).
