I've been looking at my Purpose Driven Life materials from years ago recently. The main point - Know Your Purpose!
“Be careful how you live, not as fools but as those who are wise. Make the most of every opportunity for doing good in these evil days. Don't act thoughtlessly, but try to understand what the Lord wants you to do.” Eph. 5:15-17 (NLT)
There are 3 basic questions we need to ask ourselves:
1. WHAT DOES GOD WANT? MY WHOLE LIFE.
“Give yourselves completely to God since you have been given new life. And use your whole body as a tool to do what is right for the glory of God.” Rom. 6:13 (NLT)
WHAT DOES IT TAKE? DISCIPLINE. “Discipline
yourself for the purpose of godliness.”
3. WHY SHOULD I DO IT? THE CROSS.
“He died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again.”
“Lord, I have heard the news about you; I am amazed at what you have done. Lord, do great things once again in our time; make those things happen again in our own days.” Hab. 3:2 (NCV)
What decisions do you need to make in order to not waste your life?
IT”S YOUR CHOICE
