~ “IF you have any encouragement from being united with CHRIST, IF any comfort from HIS LOVE, IF any fellowship with The SPIRIT, IF any tenderness and compassion, then make my JOY complete by being like-minded, having the same LOVE, being one in Spirit & Purpose. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others!” Philippians 2 ~ WORD FOR TODAY! ~

~ THOUGHT FOR TODAY! ~

The real purpose of life is to daily draw closer to the LORD. To diligently seek HIS WILL & HIS WAY above everything & everyone. We know not what tomorrow may bring? But we can have complete confidence in the Lord as we grow in His Grace & Love.

We can build a strong firm foundation upon the Word of the Lord! Believing His Word and embracing His principles in our daily life are key. As we Trust Him we walk by Faith. We also continuously grow in His Grace. His Wisdom, Knowledge and Peace will manifest and multiply within us.

Here in Philippians we find the Apostle Paul giving us further insight into what is very important. Spiritual unity was the desired goal. GOD knows where each of us are coming from. HE KNOWS why we do what we do or do not do. His Word teaches us that; “Whatever you DO, DO it as unto The LORD!”

Sometimes we as Believers need to show a contrast to whatever the world is doing. Know this;the wheat & the tares are growing together. Nowadays it can be hard to distinguish on a surface level between the world & GOD’S CHURCH. Therefore we must PRAY for DISCERNMENT!

It is not the broad crowded road that leads to the LORD but the Narrow path where fewer travel. It was the majority that opted to kill JESUS CHRIST. Notice how JESUS was so misunderstood… Humility means at time taking a back seat. Humility means at times others will misunderstand you. Humility means sometimes we have to wait. While we are waiting we acquire patience. Patience is a virtue few understand. We must resist responding hastily and learn to trust God. When we compare ourselves to JESUS we ALL fall short! It is only by HIS GRACE we are SAVED!

Humility is not a position of weakness. It is a position of strength. It is a position of self control… Many often mistake humility for low self esteem. Many live for others to validate them. DO NOT let the world determine your fate or your lifestyle. Live each day before, “An Audience of One,” knowing that GOD is everywhere you are. HE will never lead any of us to do anything that goes against HIS WORD! It is so very important to know God and His Word for yourself. THANK YOU LORD for YOUR WORD JESUS CHRIST & YOUR HOLY SPIRIT YOUR COMFORTER! ~

Does Your Life Have A Purpose

December 26, 2009 by  
Filed under Christian Living

Does your life have purpose? Do you really feel that you have a meaningful existence? Are you truly happy? Do you continue to recycle old habits? Have you really ever thought about why you are here? Or are you just passing the time away with no particular goal in mind? Are you bogged down in your career? Did you know people leave and enter this place everyday? The Bible tells us life is but a vapor. Meaning that life is fleeting. It is an ephemeral existence that ends with you merely going into either of two possible directions. Contrary to what some believe there is no purgatory. No in between place that suspends you invisibly existing between heaven and hell. Did you know that there are some that don’t even believe in Hell?

Life does have a definite purpose! It was created for a purpose. This cosign we know as the world was definitely created by the only true and living God. The Great ”I AM” He is Alpha and Omega. Meaning He is the beginning and the end. The Bible adamantly states: “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” Genesis 1:1. The word Genesis itself means in the Greek beginning!

The Bible initially records the beginning of the earth and the heavens and its contents. It even records the first institution that God made and that is the family! The Bible starts with God not some philosophical argument. It does not commence by attempting neither to explain nor to justify God’s existence! God is sovereign! Every man has been given a measure of faith. It is through this faith we must unequivocally accept its entire truth. The Bible was divinely inspired by God. Although it was transcribed by the hands of man. It is the only infallible Biblia in the entire World which consists of 66 Books. Within its pages the mystery and purpose of life is revealed! It’s meaning and contents are revealed to us through the illumination of His divine and Holy Spirit. Through Him was the earth spoke into existence! Jesus is the “WORD”. To further affirm this let’s look at John 1-5. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made. In Him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in the darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not”.

There was nothing that was made that was not made through Jesus Christ. What power! He even took upon Himself a body of flesh to conquer sin in the flesh for us! Did you know you don’t have to live your life controlled by sin? You see it was through Adam and Eve that sin entered into the world. But it is only through Jesus Christ we can enter into His kingdom of heaven. He is the door! “HE IS THE WAY THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE! Christ lived a sinless life, was crucified, dead and buried. After three days He arose from the grave. He ascended into heaven after being seen by many witnesses. It is through the power of His resurrection we are redeemed. For this reason when we accept Him as Savior and Lord upon the genuine profession of our faith. We need Him to save us from the power of sin in our life! Did you know we become heirs and joint heirs in His many bountiful blessings? We have inherited the freedom to not let sin reign in our mortal bodies!

Perhaps you are skeptical? You are what some call agnostic. You don’t really believe in anything. Perhaps you have a “said faith?” Meaning you just say you believe. Perhaps you are one of those who believe there really is not a hell. Believe it or not; one way or the other you must come to grips with His infallible truth. At one time or another “every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that He is Lord”.

If you want to discover what the real purpose of life is I invite you to sincerely get into His Word. Stop dibbling and dabbling in a life with no real substance. Stop just going to church. (Or not going to church). Make up your mind today to walk with God daily! Begin to walk in faith by the magnificent power of His resurrection. Ask the Lord to help you begin to respectfully and sincerely desire to know how to truly “Worship Him in Spirit and in Truth!

Did you know that God’s will is always what is best? God is always willing to show us His will! We just have to get better at listening. Declare your home as a place where God is welcomed. Begin to worship Him sincerely! Start treating your body as His “temple”. After all it is or is it? Stop defiling it with profanity, lying, covetousness, envy, infidelity, drugs, alcohol, overeating… Stop just listening to His Word! Begin a spiritual cleansing by digesting His Word! Did you know He’s really coming back for His true Church? Better yet ask yourself if the world were to end today are you certain of your destiny?

You see heaven is not a place “you just try to make it in”. It is not a place where you can personally schedule your desired arrival time. Consciously make a sincere effort to daily surrender to His will in your life. Repent! Then really move forward. Begin to live each day as though He might return. Know without a doubt you have chosen the final eternal habitation reserved expressively for His children. Commence to really seek Him first! God is so patient. He gives us the freedom to choose. Stop being so absorbed in the things of this life and immerse yourself in His WORD. He will provide everything and whatever else it is you need and so much more! It is only in God you will find the peace, contentment and joy that surpasses the understanding of man! It is only

in Him you will discover what life is really about. Without a meaningful spiritual relationship with Him life really has no purpose!
