YOUR PURPOSE IN CHRIST
“Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me His prisoner, but share with me in the sufferings for the gospel according to the power of God, who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began.” II Timothy 1:8,9 NKJV
There a million and one things we can decide to do or become with our lives.
But for those of us who have been born again and understand what it means we know that we cannot just choose randomly from the top of our heads what we want to become or do with our lives.
There’s a purpose on your life, God intended for you to fulfil a path that he pre-ordained for you. We were created to live out God’s will and plan for our lives not ours.
Ephesians 2:10 NKJV says,
For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.
Let’s look at this text in a few other bible translations to make it clearer.
(CSB) For we are His creation-created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared ahead of time so that we should walk in them.
(MSG) No, we neither make nor save ourselves. God does both the making and saving. He creates each of us by Christ Jesus to join him in the work he does, the good work he has gotten ready for us to do, work we had better be doing.
We have become his poetry, a re-created people that will fulfill the destiny he has given each of us, for we are joined to Jesus, the Anointed One. Even before we were born, God planned in advance our destiny and the good works we would do to fulfill it!
For we are His workmanship [His own master work, a work of art], created in Christ Jesus [reborn from above—spiritually transformed, renewed, ready to be used] for good works, which God prepared [for us] beforehand [taking paths which He set], so that we would walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us].
Today is a good day to realign yourself with the divine blueprint of your life.
Do not live to yourself as one without purpose. You have been called to a Holy Calling.
As you stay with God’s Word and Spirit in prayers and meditation, God’s Spirit would begin to align you to the heavenly blue print already set out for you.
I thank God for i have been saved and called with a holy calling, not according to my works, but according to God’s purpose and grace which was given to me in Christ Jesus before time began. I declare that i fulfill my purpose in Christ Jesus, while I am on earth. In Jesus Name, Amen.
