What Is Your Life’s Purpose?

June 10, 2010

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” NIV – Jeremiah 29:11

Why do you think you were born? What is your life’s purpose? Can you write it down in a phrase or a sentence? Let’s fast forward. What do you want on your tombstone? What few words would describe your priorities or your passion?

Clarity of purpose is a key to successful living:

* It guides us in our decision-making.

* It helps us to know when to say yes and when to say no.

* It determines where we will go in life. It’s the difference between just existing and making a difference.

* Only through our Creator can we find our ultimate purpose; He created us for a purpose. No one is here by accident. God has a plan for every life – a destiny to fulfill.

So, what’s yours? What’s your purpose?

I can’t answer that question for you, but the One who created you can. Get to know Him through His Son Jesus, and His ever-insightful Word in Scripture. You’ll be taking the first and most important step in discovering your life’s purpose.
