AJ’s Corner@Godians Assembly: 20 June – Life of purpose 3


Introduction

 

Let us remind ourselves of a few things:

 

A. God’s heart desire is for everyone to be saved and to come to know Jesus - 1 Tim 2:3 – 4

 

This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, 4 who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.

 

B. God has entrusted unto us the message of reconciliation – for us to get men to know Jesus.  

 

2 Cor 5: 19 - that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation.

 

C. If we are not experiencing the fullness of God, it may be because our lives are not in sync with His purpose, His agenda, His heart’s desire.

 

His agenda is all about men being saved and knowing Jesus as Lord

 

Check if we are obeying and serving Him – this is a life of purpose.

 

 

1. Purpose is living our life in line with God’s dictates, His instructions

 

Psalm 139:13 – New Living Translation

15 You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb.

16 You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.

 

Discussion – Does this mean every little detail of our lives is dictated beforehand whether we like it or not?

 

 

2. Our lives are not a blank slate!

 

Someone said in the secret that everyone’s life is a blank slate, and you can write whatever you want on it.

 

The satanic creed is: Do what thou wilt.  

 

As we have seen in Psalm 139, Your life is not a blank slate, you can’t just write whatever you like on it.  

Rom 4:17 - As it is written, “I have made you the father of many nations”—in the presence of the God in whom he believed, who gives life to the dead and calls into existence the things that do not exist.

 

3. As a teenager, God revealed Joseph’s purpose to Him

 

Gen 37

5 Joseph had a dream, and when he told it to his brothers, they hated him all the more.

6 He said to them, “Listen to this dream I had:

7 We were binding sheaves of grain out in the field when suddenly my sheaf rose and stood upright, while your sheaves gathered around mine and bowed down to it.”

8 His brothers said to him, “Do you intend to reign over us? Will you actually rule us?” And they hated him all the more because of his dream and what he had said.

 

This was also explained in the Psalms of David in Psalm 105

17 he had sent a man ahead of them, Joseph, who was sold as a slave.

18 His feet were hurt with fetters; his neck was put in a collar of iron;

19 until what he had said came to pass, the word of the Lord tested him.

20 The king sent and released him; the ruler of the peoples set him free;

21 he made him lord of his house and ruler of all his possessions,

 

Joseph’s life was never empty, despite the demotions he faced.  

▪ As a slave in Potiphar’s house, He was described as prosperous…

▪ In prison he was put in charge…

 

This shows that he was still walking headed towards God’s purpose for his life even though things did not look that way – and in the end, it spoke when the king sent for Him.

 

 

Discussion –

▪ What do you think about the way things played out?

▪ Could anything have been done to make Joseph’s journey easier?

 

 

4. Close

 

Trust God, He will guide us into our purpose / or continue to unfold our purpose as weseek Him sincerely.

 

Remember to join us for The Lords Supper next Saturday

 

 

Homework

Memory verse – Psalm 139:16 - You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.

Study above scriptures – remember faith comes by hearing and hearing the word of God
