Whether you’re unsure of your purpose, or you’ve already got an elegantly crafted life purpose statement, I’d like you to consider these words:
God’s intention is to increase your capacity to receive and give love.
God is actively inviting your participation in his plan to allow his love to flow to and through you. He desires to clear away all that obstructs the flow of his love to you – including misconceptions about his character, fear, shame, guilt, and sin. He wants to increase your capacity for love to flow from you to the people closest to you and to the world around you.
You may receive more specific direction in your purpose based on who God made you to be, but the concept that your purpose is rooted in love is a foundational idea for you to consider.
If you haven’t noticed, our world is in desperate need of more love.
Will you join me in living out God’s purpose for us?
- What obstructs your capacity to receive God’s love?
Scripture to ponder:
John 13:34-35 (VOICE)
“So I give you a new command: Love each other deeply and fully. Remember the ways that I have loved you, and demonstrate your love for others in those same ways. Everyone will know you as My followers if you demonstrate your love to others.”
