My story:

The basic equation for winning at life:

Knowing your authentic self + knowing God’s purpose in the world = Powerful life mission

 

Read aloud Ephesians 1:4-5

  • What is God’s purpose in the world?

“Your capacity to love other’s is the only thing that ultimately will last from this life.” Pastor Doug

I want to leave you with a powerful take away today:

God’s purpose is that we experience true, authentic love, that we walk and live in love, and that the more we learn to love one another with a righteous love, the more people see God is real.

 

You cannot discover your authentic self apart from God’s purpose in this world. Simply because you are a part of His purpose. Now that you understand God’s purpose in this world, 

  • what is your intentional decision to live and walk in it? 

 

This is how you live your life mission.
