God Has A Purpose For You

God planned you and chose you before the foundation of the world!
What is God’s purpose for you?

God wants everyone to trust Him and have a close, lasting relationship with Him.  He promises He will always be there for us. In the Psalms we read: "Those who know your name will trust in you, for you, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you. (Psalms 9:10 - NIV) He created us with the ability to make choices.  Although God is active in every phase of our existence, we are not robots.

We have a choice to love, praise, honor, glorify and obey God or to do our own thing. God wants us to love Him supremely and choose to follow His desires as found in The Bible. One of the ways we can show God how much we love Him is to worship Him by being obedient, thanking Him for all He provides and singing His praises.

Another desire that God has for us is to become more like Him every day.  He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to provide us with the Free Gift Of Eternal Life and to show us how to live more abundantly. Jesus said: "I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full." (John 10:10b - NIV)

God also wants us to serve other Christians and our community.  He asks us to contribute our time and resources to the work of His Church, the “body of Christ” here on earth.  Since He owns everything and every moment we have is given to us by His grace, we should strongly desire to give something back to Him.  We cannot "out give" God.  He pours out blessings on His children.

However, man has a problem, there is a barrier that gets in the way of us having a close personal relationship with God. The Bible calls this barrier "sin." Until our sin problem is resolved we are isolated from God and anything we try to do in an attempt to earn our way into his favor is not sufficient. God's only solution is Jesus Christ.

When we accept the Free Gift of Heaven and Eternal Life we will naturally want to tell others about how they can enjoy a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ.

God has directed us to spread His Word throughout the world.

God can do anything He wants to do that is in keeping with His character.  He could send angels to tell others about Jesus or minister to the poor.  But He has chosen to work through us.  What a great privilege it is to be a partner with God.

God desires that we be in the world but not “of” the world.  Christians are called to think and behave differently than those who do not call Jesus Christ their Lord.

Christians should live holy lives, worship God, fellowship with other Christians as a member of a local church, grow in their faith, serve the community, serve the church and spread the Good News about Jesus to the world, starting with their friends, family and neighbors.

We encourage you to get a copy of the Bible such as the New Living Translation or the New International Version. Read your Bible daily and make a decision to obey what God is telling you to do as He speaks to you through the pages of the Scripture.

It is very important for Christians to be in fellowship with other believers.

We encourage you to find a solid Bible teaching, Bible believing church.
