NEW SERMON SERIES - Purpose What is our purpose?
- finding purpose has no age limit. - to find purpose, we need to examine our lives. Jesus said, 'to find purpose, you must lose it.' What does that mean? It means, it's not about us. It is about finding truth from the person who created us - God. How do we lose our life? By believing in Jesus - by seeking the truth - by reading our instruction manual - The Bible.
Jesus tells us, "Truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father." Our actions/sin begin as beliefs. Our beliefs shape our lives and who we are. How does God transform us? By allowing our minds and hearts to seek the truth, free ourselves of destructive thoughts.
In Romans 12: 2 "Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will."
Do you think we can know our purpose and where God is leading us if we don't know God? By allowing God to shape our minds and hearts, we can then apply those to life and we begin to see HOPE. We allow ourselves to be shaped by our belief in God.
