It's a pleasure growing and developing with you! On my last post I discussed some differences between operating through our pleasures in life verses being influenced and led by our purposes. Even though, the topic of discovering life's purpose is being preached and taught more and more freely, the number of people discovering their purposes are still dwindling. In understanding what purpose is, we learn that it's simply "the reason for which something is done or created or for which something exists." However, how do we find our purpose?
As a believer in God and His existence, I also trust that He is the overseer of this universe and beyond. In addition, I believe in His word! According to Genesis 1:27, "So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them." Through this test many of us have heard sermons and teachings that informs us that our images mimic God's by way of the Trinity. We've been taught that God has three beings, God, the Father, God, the Son (Jesus), and God, the Holy Spirit. As a result, human beings consist of having a body, mind, and soul. Moreover, I would ask you to consider, if that being so, would not our purposes be made in His image as well? When we study the life of Jesus, we find out that His entire purpose dealt with the need and the necessity of others. No matter what we do for a living our livelihoods depend on others! As a singer someone have to purchase your music, or as an educator, someone must be in the need of your knowledge. Therefore discovering our purposes in life is simple, what gifts have God given to you that would serve humanity in an arena that God can be glorified? What are you simply great at doing with little effort, how have you been called to serve humanity? Don't be shy to share!
