Our Purpose

What is our purpose in this life? That is a question many people ask. We as God's children know what our purpose is ,to do the will of the father. I was reading Isaiah 43:7 " Even every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him." We were made to bring glory to God!

* Glory means to give the world (saved and lost) a correct opinion or estimate of who God is and what he is like. Wow! do we, do I, give the world a correct opinion of God when they see me at work, play, in difficulties and struggles, just in my every day dealings. Do we make people think God is sad, downcast, mean, unforgiving, rude, selfish, or do we show he is joyful, loveing, forgiving, kind, never selfseeking. I do not mean to say that we are not to stand for the truth, for God is not only a God of love, but of rightousness. His wrath will come upon those who reject him, we need to warn the world. But do we show the truth out of love for a lost world or out of hate and pride. Ephesians 2:8-9"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves : it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast" Matthew 5:16 "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven." May we each bring glory to God in everything we think, do and say. ( :
