What Is Our Purpose In Life ?

What is our purpose in life? For some people it's their professions like being a teacher,doctor or a preacher. God has a purpose for us. In Matthew 10:7-8 Jesus told his disciples," As you go,preach,saying the Kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick,cleanse the leper,raise the dead,cast out the devils:freely you have received,freely give. God's purpose for us is to spread his word. I recently quit smoking because my girlfriend has asthma and it bothered her when I came home smelling like a chimney plus we are expecting a baby next year so I don't want to endanger their lives. In 1 Corinthians 4:17 it says "If any man defiles the temple of God,him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy,which temple ye are. That says we are the temple of Christ,we shall not harm our bodies. Can you imagine how much better this world would be if all Christians stopped smoking and started eating healthier,exercising more,didn't do drugs and only drank in moderation if they drank at all and didn't pierce or tattoo their body? If this world lived by the Bible,it would be a much better place to live and raise our children in. There would be no legalizing marijuana,no same sex marriages,drugs would be just about no more. For the Bible says one man and one woman! Please don't get me wrong,I don't down homosexuality,I have friends who are gay but same sex marriage is against Biblical principles. Churches are now approving this act. How can preachers do this when they take an oath to uphold and preach the word of God as it is written ? We have priests and church workers who are among sexual predators and they still get to keep their positions. Do they forget what their purpose in life is ? I'm not very Biblical and I don't totally live my life as I should but I've changed alot in the last six months. My girlfriend has become a Christian recently and is starting to do Bible study and learn the word of God. I know she will be a great Christian and role model for our daughter. As for me I'm actually back to my Bible study and we watch Joel Osteen on TV and on the Internet. I'm seriously thinking of going out and ministering to strangers on the street. I use to do this in Florida. I was sitting at the park one day writing a hub and listening to my mp3 player when this gentleman walked up to me and asked me if I was saved.We started talking about God and talked a good 45 minutes. When we were done and he left I thanked God for answering my prayer,see just before he showed up my girlfriend and I had an argument and I asked God for guidance and he showed up. I know my purpose in life is to spread God's word. So what is your purpose in life? Whatever it is do it to your fullest potential and do it according to God's word. Always keep the faith no matter how bad things seem to be at times. Just rely on God and he will guide your steps. Deuteronomy 4:31 says "(For the Lord they god is a merciful God;) he will not forsake thee,neither destroy thee,nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he sware unto them. No matter what your purpose is keep God #1 in what you do. Don't set your sights on earthly possessions,set your sights on heaven and everlasting life with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. If you read Revelation you'll learn about the seven seals and in my opinion six of them are already open and it won't be long before the seventh is opened up,so it's really important you follow your purpose in life. If you don't know what your purpose is sit down and talk with God and listen with your heart not your ears.
