You have probably asked yourself, What's my purpose?" There has been a lot written about the church's purpose and a Christ-follower's purpose that you can read. But I think one of the greatest reasons we don't live out our Godly purposes is that we are too easily distracted. God is trying to tell us something but we're not listening. We have a great example by Jesus about keeping our focus in Mark chapter five.
Jesus was sent to heal this broken world. He was so focused on His mission that even in a huge crowd He could discern a woman of great faith had touched Him for the purpose of getting healed and as a result healed her. At once Jesus realized that power had gone out from him. He turned around in the crowd and asked, "Who touched my clothes?"
Are you seeking God’s purpose for your life? Are you proactive in pursuing that purpose or do you let life’s circumstances distract you? Are you living life with a purpose or are you merely existing?
“Aim for Heaven and you’ll get the world thrown in, aim for the world and you’ll get neither.” C.S. Lewis
Loving Jesus means trusting God has a purpose for your life. Amen?
