Having a Purpose
—She knew that she was formed by the hands of God, dreamed up in His heart, and placed in this world with a Purpose!
These past few weeks, I have noticed so many people on Facebook and Twitter who have completely given up. They’ve given up on themselves, on the people around them, and most of all on God! They don’t understand that God has a purpose for them. Most of these people actually think that they aren’t needed, which is far from true. What they don’t realize is that THEY HAVE A PURPOSE! God has a plan for each of us! You may have given up due to trials in your life, but God sends you through those trials to shape and mold you into the person you’re meant be! You have a purpose! God wants to use you! Don’t give up! Let Him use you, whether it be to make a difference in one persons life, your community, church, or even the world!’
How alive are we?
How alive are we? My friend made the statement a few weeks ago, “We’re all dead inside..” She wasn’t trying to be morbid, just trying to make a point about a lot of Christians today! Then, I didn’t understand what she meant, and I just brushed it off. But as the preacher was speaking during revival, I heard those words again. “We’re all dead inside! We aren’t acting like we’re alive and on fire for God! We’re letting the Devil tell us that we are dead inside.” I guess that would fall into the same category as being a “lukewarm” Christian.. We can’t be “lukewarm”, you’re either hot or cold! So, I have to ask.. Are you alive and on fire for God? Or.. Are you letting the Devil tell you that you are dead inside?
