It's a quest we're all on, and you know the answer might be closer than you think. Galatians 2:20 (NCV) says, "I was put to death on the cross with Christ, and I do not live anymore—it is Christ who lives in me. And I now live my life in this physical body by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me."
You are not just a random collection of experiences, achievements, or failures. Nah, you're so much more—you're a beloved child of God. And when you understand your identity in that light, your purpose becomes clearer, too.
Living a life rooted in Christ gives you a purpose that's both eternal and meaningful right here and now. Through your actions, words, and choices, you become a living testimony to God's love and grace. That's not just a purpose; that's a calling.
Everything you are is because of Jesus.
Lord, thank You that I can reflect Your character and wisdom, Amen.
Do a little bible study about the character of Jesus.
