His Purpose for a Purpose

There are two different ways which I have found make something that I do effective. The first, is if God is behind it. Almost anything that you do, if you pray and it is done within God's will, you will be effective. The second is if there is a purpose. Compared to when I do drama for a room full of people, when I practice in my bedroom it seems dead. But on a stage it is powerful and effective because there is a reason for me to do it.
We look at the early Christians in the Bible and are amazed because they seem to have superhuman abilities when it comes to witnessing and sticking to their faith. But the truth is, they were no more than you or I, they simply lived their lives with a Purpose- the purpose of serving Christ. If you want your life to have meaning you have to live it with a purpose! Paul, James, Timothy.. they weren't any greater than you can be if you follow God's purpose and plan.

1 Peter 2:21 For you have been called for this purpose, since Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example for you to follow in His steps...

We have the perfect example of how to live our lives to the fullest potential for God, what is stopping us?

1 Corinthians 5:5 Now He who prepared us for this very purpose is God, who gave to us the Spirit as a pledge. Therefore, being always of good courage, and knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord-- for we walk by faith, not by sight--
He has prepared us and He has given us the Holy Spirit to guide us. Live your life with the purpose of completing God's will in your life and showing His will to those around you!!
