Living On Purpose

Without purpose we cannot experience life in it's fullness. Waking up in the morning with no engaging sense of purpose is boring, demotivating and leads to an aimless, petty and miserably selfish life. On the other hand, waking up with the knowledge that I have a grand purpose bigger than myself is invigorating. Here is how one person said it:

“The best adventures always spring from a noble cause or mission. The greatest adventurers do things not only for the thrills but because they accomplish a worthy purpose. Because the excitement they feel connects to a far greater objective, they enjoy a far deeper, richer, and longer lasting pleasure than those who seek only an adrenaline rush. That’s why the Christian life presents the best opportunities for adventure. Those who invest themselves unreservedly in partnering with God to extend His kingdom – whether they do so in the boardroom, classroom, lunchroom, or weight room – know an ongoing thrill unavailable to others. ”

So here is the reality. You DO have a purpose. You have as much purpose as any human being who has ever lived. We are all created equal in this sense. You have may have a different capacity than someone else but you have the same possibility of reaching your capacity or potential as anyone else has. Your job, should you choose to accept it, is to find and live out your purpose with passion.

How? Check in to this blog tomorrow to see how Hebrews 12 gets us started on finding and living out our purpose with passion.
