Gods Purpose For Your Life

Updated on August 7, 2009

Mission

Hardly a day goes by that I don't have some kind of anxiety situation. My mind wanders all the time. I could be reading a whole chapter in my Bible and at the end of the chapter I haven't the faintest Idea what I have read. I can have a song play in my head while I'm praying. When I'm driving I have to be familiar with the area completely or I get lost or disorientated. I miss turns a lot. I'd rather drive alone or let my wife drive so I wont be embarrassed when that happens. My wife, father and brother can drive down the street and tell you what building use to be in a certain place ten years after it was raised and a new one put there. I drive by those buildings and when one gets raised I cant tell you what use to be there in the same week.


What I go through is not so uncommon as I thought, that is why some one invented maps and later the GPS, I won't leave home with out it. In this day and age it is common to not be concerned about our lives as Christians, where the consequences of missing God's plan are much more serious. It is easy to get some were if you know where you are going. As Christians we need to ask ourselves where are we going. Are we going were God is going or are we following our own agenda looking for God's approval of it. The christian life should be one of experiencing God. We can only do that if we work were he is working. The Bible gives us a clear picture of what God is seeking to do in the world and we need to conform our lives to it if we are to fulfill what God has saved us for.


Every year countless of Christians make plans without considering  how they might serve God's purpose in this world. Career decisions are made without adequate biblical input or awareness of the real needs and opportunities worldwide. Churches are busy building bigger mega churches but are unaware of the big picture and how their church fits into God's plan. God is a missionary God and the Bible is a missionary Book. God is about seeking to save them that are lost all over the world. In the Old Testament we can see God raising up a nation to evangelize the world. Israel botched up that plan so God turned to the Gentiles but he has not cast away his people. In the New Testament we see he sent “the twelve” only to the lost tribes of Israel.


The plan if God was always to redeem man we can see in Gen 3:15 where God is the first missionary going after Adam and Eve to bring them to Himself. He did not leave them to die in there sins but instead He promised them a Savior and assured the defeat of Satan and his forces. This is the Gospel in its embryonic stage. At the close of His ministry Jesus Christ gave His disciples and all of us who follow him His great commission, culminating in the book of Acts with the Churches mandate in fulfilling the purpose of God.


The Gospel of God must be proclaimed to all nation. Forgiveness of sin in Christ's name must be offered to all. Believers are to be established in congregations, separated from old relationships in the teachings of Christ. There must be submission to God then we can recognize God's sovereignty over His work in our lives.
