Listening to these Persicopes really can get you to thinking. Carla R. Cannon told us this morning as followers of Jesus Christ…why we are here. She said “God reveals His will to us and communicates with us so we can fulfill His assignment in the earth.”
That was awesome to me!
Have you ever thought about why am I here? You may have it in your mind that you didn’t ask to be here…but there is a purpose for you being here on this earth. Remember, Jeremiah 1:5 tells us that before you were formed in the womb, God knew you. You were set apart. Do you understand what that means? God had already predestined a place for you before you even came to the earth. He already had plans for you, a purpose ready for you.
Carla says in the Periscope that you are not here just to build a great business, or a great ministry or to make a great name for yourself or to lay around and have a whole bunch of babies LOL….
You are here to do your Father’s business!
So here is the big question…do you know what your Father’s business is?
Did you know that you are to live a life that worships God? Live a life that pleases God? Did you know that you are to imitate Christ, be Christ-like? Did you know that you are to share the gospel of Jesus Christ? Tell someone about Him. Lead others to Him. Share your life as a Christian with them. Help someone get closer to Him. And be an example of Him.
But most importantly…be in a personal relationship with Him. Be intentional about making Jesus a part of your life. It is in Him that we live, move and have our being. He needs to be priority in your life.
Why are you here?
Not for your own selfish pleasures, dreams, aspirations. But to give God glory in those dreams and aspirations. To give all honor to Him for showing favor in those dreams and aspirations. To acknowledge that without Him you would not have these dreams and aspirations. And then living out a life that gives Him honor, a life that imitates His life, a life of righteousness, a life of holiness. The Lord says, be ye holy for I am holy. It’s not a suggestion…it’s a command. And if you love the Lord you will obey his commands.
Why are you here?
I’m praying for you.
