"He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life." - 1 John 5:12 NAS

Going Nowhere Fast?

Are you racing through life going nowhere fast?
Have you ever taken time to pause and figure out why you’re here? Don’t be shortsighted, focusing on this life alone. Keep eternity in mind. God created all of us for a purpose.

I recommend developing a life purpose statement. A man once told me his purpose statement was to “Get all you can; can all you get; and sit on the can!” I’d say his statement is REALLY shortsighted! (I really hope that when you develop your purpose statement, it’ll be more than that.)

So, what do you think is God’s reason for putting you on this earth?

Here’s a hint. It becomes clear when you get to know the person of Jesus Christ. With Him, it’s amazing how all things become clear. Otherwise, you end up like the masses, too busy to take time to know why you’re here and too lost to know where you’re going.

Stop for a second. Take a deep breath. Look up. Christ will help you discover the purpose of your life. You might just be surprised what it may be!
