Want to Know Your Purpose? Ask Your Creator!

Description

If you don’t know your purpose, then you end up drifting through life. You get bounced around. You don’t control your life; your life controls you!

“Everything, absolutely everything … got started in him and finds its purpose in him.” (Colossians 1:16 MSG)

When you put your trust in Jesus Christ, you learn God’s purpose for your life.

Most people don’t know the purpose of their lives. If you don’t know your purpose, you end up drifting through life. You get bounced around. You don’t control your life; your life controls you!

There’s only one way you’re going to learn the purpose of your life. You’ve got to talk to your Creator.

Sometimes people will say that if you want to know your purpose, look within. I did that. It didn’t work! You can’t tell you what your purpose is because you didn’t create you. Only the Creator can tell you what purpose you were created for. You will never, ever know the purpose of your life until you believe in Jesus Christ, because He is your Creator.

The Bible says, “Everything, absolutely everything … got started in him and finds its purpose in him” (Colossians 1:16 MSG).

Today so many people are confused about their identity and their purpose. They say, “I don’t know who I am, and I don’t know what I’m supposed to be doing with my life.” That’s because they’re looking in the wrong places. There is only one place to find your identity and purpose in life, and that’s through a relationship with your Creator, Jesus Christ.

“It’s in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for …. part of the overall purpose he is working out in everything and everyone” (Ephesians 1:11).

Talk It Over

Where have you looked to find your identity? What was the result?

Once you are saved, how do you get to know God?

Why is knowing your purpose in life important to you?
