Designed for a Purpose
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places.
In love, He predestined us for adoption as children through Christ, according to the purpose of His will, to the praise of His glorious grace.” Ephesians 3
Each one of us have been designed for a purpose. First and foremost that purpose is to be in a living relationship with Jesus Christ. It is within this purpose that we discover that God chose us in Christ before the foundation of the world to bless us with every spiritual blessing. Part of that blessing is to enjoy His presence daily. So our focus is not so much on the earthly things as much as it is on the heavenly things.
Another revelation that we discover is to know the security of being His children. Paul writes in his letter to the Romans that we did not receive a spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but instead we have received a spirit of adoption by which we cry, “Abba, Father!” It is also in our daily walk with Jesus Christ that we discover that God’s overwhelming love for us. The more this is revealed we are encouraged to know that Jesus highly values us. Therefore, we no longer need to let the opinion of others get us down but to know who we are in Christ. It is in knowing our true identity in Jesus that we live a life of meaning and purpose.
