God's Purpose for You Today

Church Family: One of the biggest questions that we ask God and ourselves is, "What is God’s purpose for my life?" It is easy to think that God plays hide and go seek with His purpose for us, but He doesn't. He wants us to know His purpose for us every day. He is the God of purpose. He has a very detailed and eternal purpose that manifests itself daily in our very mundane lives. God is not random nor is He unplanned. His purpose for us has been His purpose from before Creation and it extends into the future coming of the new heavens and the new earth.

What is His purpose for you? God’s purpose for you is to be conformed to the image of Jesus Christ (Rom.8:28-29). Today, God brings events, circumstances, trials, sufferings and opportunities in your life for you to be transformed, by the Spirit of God, into the likeness of Christ, from one degree of glory to another (2 Cor. 3:18). Every day, in the mundane daily grind, God calls you to actively surrender to be pursuing Christlikeness. That is His purpose. When you surrender to God’s purpose, He will then lead you into seeing every event, circumstance, trial, suffering, loss and success as an opportunity to become more like Jesus Christ. Our mindset and choices in the mundane daily grind may seem insignificant but they are just the opposite. These mundane events and struggles are the means in which God shapes our lives into Christlikeness. Our choices transform us either into Christlikeness or world-likeness. Every time that you make a choice, it is God’s purpose for you for that choice to transform you into a more complete image of Christ and not the world. Are you more like Christ today than you were yesterday, or more like the world?
If you have been called by God to purposively become more and more like Jesus Christ, He promises you that no matter what comes into your life, good, bad, life or death, He will work all of those events for your good so that you become more and more like Jesus Christ (Rom. 8:28).

See you Sunday, with a purpose, Steve
