TOPIC: THE BENEFITS OF LIVING A PURPOSE-DRIVEN LIFE
TEXTS: Philippians 3:10-15
INTRODUCTION: A purpose driven life is fulfilling your divine purpose of existence and to answer two questions from your Creator. What did you do with Jesus Christ? What did you do with what He gave you? We shall now go on to consider the benefits of living a purpose-driven life.
THE BENEFITS OF A PURPOSE-DRIVEN LIFE
- It gives meaning to your life. We were made to have meaning. Without God, life has no purpose and without purpose, life has no meaning. Without meaning, life has no significance or hope. Jeremiah 29:11; Ephesians 3:20.
- It simplifies your life. It defines what you do and what you do not do. Your purpose becomes the standard you use to evaluate which activities are essential and which are not. Proverbs 13:7; Isaiah 26:3.
- It focuses your life. It concentrates your efforts and energy on what is important. You become effective by being selective. Without a clear purpose, you will keep changing directions, jobs, relationships, churches etc. Ephesians 5:17; Philippians 3:13,15.
- It motivates your life. Purpose always produces passion and passion dissipates when you lack purpose. Philippians 3:10-13.
CONCLUSION: God created us for a purpose. Believers must live according to that purpose. Abundant blessings are in stock for those who live a purpose-driven life.
