This month at the Pentecostals of Sydney we are focusing on discovering our God-given purpose as a Church and as individual Believers. There is perhaps nothing more frustrating and depressing to a person than living a life of aimlessness and purposeless existence. Understanding and embracing one’s purpose is the difference between living a full and abundant life and merely eking out an existence.
Most people give themselves to some kind of reason by which to live in this world. Some live for riches, pleasures, success, or even other people. Many are living their lives in a pursuit of finding ‘purpose’ itself. Our purpose however can be found in God and His Word.
Whenever an inventor creates a brand new contraption, it often attracts wonder and inquiry from others, with the main question being; “What is it?” or in other words; ‘What is it’s purpose?’ To get the answer, one must inquire with the inventor or creator of that machine. In like manner, to discover our purpose, we must inquire with our Creator.
Colossians 1:16 says; All things were created through Him and for Him.
We have been created with the purpose of giving God pleasure with our lives. We further discover that the way that we have been created or designed has not been a random occurrence but it’s been with a specific aim in mind.
Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created. Rev 4:11 (KJV)
Are you living out your purpose in Christ? Join with us for this incredible journey of living on purpose according to God’s divine intentions!
