Unless we know God’s purpose in our life, we cannot understand how life really works.
“We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him,
WHO HAVE BEEN CALLED according to His PURPOSE.” Romans 8:28 (NIV)
God calls me to become mature like His Son Jesus Christ. “For God knew his people in advance, and he chose them TO BECOME LIKE HIS SON, so that his Son would be the firstborn, with many brothers and sisters.” Romans 8:29 (NLT)
We have a broken relationship with God but Jesus made the first move towards reconciliation. Now, we should pursue peace with other people. Our first ministry is that of reconciliation: if we are in Christ, He will use us in reconciling the world to Him.
