Why are we here?

Why are we here?

Ephesians 2:10

10 For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.

Titus 2:14

14 He gave his life to free us from every kind of sin, to cleanse us, and to make us his very own people, totally committed to doing good deeds.

Central Truth

God created us in his image to live a life that would be pleasing to him. He sent his son Jesus to show us how to live on this earth.

Devotional

Every day I encounter folks that are caught up in their hectic every day life.

So much that I see that they are missing Gods joy.

God put us here on this earth to do good things, witness the goodness of others living for Christ and participate in the life he intended for us.

Every waking moment of our lives we should be aware of our purpose (given to us by God). I see this in close friends that are always positive, always doing what they can to “lift” others. Their witness through “being” that way leads people around them to wonder what’s different about him/her.

God has shown us how we should live on this earth by sending His son as a perfect example and prove that nothing is impossible as we live our lives to please Him.

My prayer each day is that I live today pleasing to God and wanting to be one of His own people.

Questions To Ponder
