You Have a Purpose

Arkansas River Valley Business Directory

The question, “What is my purpose?” comes to our hearts in unexpected moments during our lives. We long to believe our time here on earth is significant. And we often look to people or positions to help us fill the void that lingers as we search for answers. But still the question in our souls remains.

This morning two verses caught my attention: “But the Pharisees and lawyers rejected the counsel of God against themselves, being not baptized of him” (Luke 7:30). In contrast, “For David, after he had served his own generation by the will of God, fell on sleep, and was laid unto his fathers, and saw corruption:” (Acts 13:36).

What’s the difference? The Pharisees and teachers of the law insisted on living their way. By their rules. Their standards. Their righteousness. But David was a man who chose to live God’s way. The Pharisees were focused on appearing to do big things for God. David was intent on spending every little moment of life with God.

In other words, it turns out our reason for being is God Himself. Living with purpose simply means living with God. We don’t have to find our purpose someday, somewhere. Instead we can simply love the One who loves us right now, right here.

“I will cry unto God most high; unto God that performeth all things for me.” (Psalms 57:2)
