What Should I Do With My Life?

Picture1

Let’s begin with the age-old question…What is the meaning of my life?

Everyone has been formed, known by God, now what am I set apart to do…what is my assignment?  What does God have planned for me?

1st Step – Start a relationship with God through putting your trust in Jesus Christ

Next Steps – Do what God’s Word says clearly to do – Read Bible, Pray, Attend & serve in church, love others, witness

Next step – ASK, James 1:5 – “if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God”

Next – discover your spiritual gifts.  This is part of the process of our GPS training.  We discover our spiritual gifts and we put those into practice.  Those with teaching will lead devotions.  Those with service gifts will lead our hospitality team.  Those with exhortation gifts will lead the encouragement team.  See how that works.  God will match your passions, gifting, and his calling on your life together.

Why would I want to do this?

Christopher Wright says “God’s perspective is always bigger than the immediate moment”.  WOW!  Need this reminder daily of the Sovereignty of God…He Knows!

Jeremiah was just a young man when God said these words to him.  Little did he know what was in store for him.  That’s what makes a movie good, an amusement park ride fun, and a book a page-turner…it’s the excitement of seeing what is up next.  Don’t you want to buckle up and see what God has in store for you?

What is stopping you?

Pride?  Fear?  Doubt?  What is stopping you are your excuses.  And what happens when God begins to take away your excuses, and all you have left is obedience.  That’s when you begin find out what you should do with your life.
