Whether we teach, lead, or serve in any other capacity, what we do should be lining up with God’s purposes.
Are you a teacher? — Teach on purpose.
Are you a children’s worker? — Discipline on purpose.
Are you a ministry leader? — Lead on purpose.
The whole of our lives, not just our ministry, should line up with God’s purposes. Living life with purpose makes a difference.
Helping People Live Life with Purpose by Lining Up with God’s Purposes
Imagine if all the people that come to your church would live their individual daily lives more on purpose. Can you begin to fathom the impact that everybody aligning their lives with God’s purposes would have on your church’s life and on the lost world around us?
- Teach on Living Life with Purpose but know that a curriculum alone will not be sufficient to change people’s lives.
- The Spirit of God must take the truth of God and work His purposes in our hearts. So, yield to the Spirit.
- Prayer must envelop your church’s life. “Be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints” (Eph. 6:18). So, pray.
- Leaders and teachers must provide good models of what it is to live life on purpose. So, be an example.
- We must intentionally nurture our personal walk with the Lord so love for God spills over into us purposefully loving others. So, spend quality time with God.
Living life with purpose, God’s purposes, has to begin somewhere. May it begin with you and me!
