WHAT IS YOUR PURPOSE? – Ray E Horton
“Surely the Lord God does nothing without revealing His purpose to His servants the prophets” (Amos 3:7).
He “desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth”
In the New Covenant, in a sense, we are all His prophets, and He has revealed His purpose in His Word. I want my purpose to be His purpose.
We read in Rom. 8:28, “ We know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.” That tells me that He has a purpose for each of us.
2 Tim. 1:1 tells us to pray for all people. Why would that be? Verse 4 tells us: He “desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.” So, I see my ultimate purpose is to spend eternity with Him, but not alone.
My Purpose Is His Purpose
In the interim, my purpose is His purpose, to bring those around me to the knowledge of the truth of His Word, that they may be saved. That means letting Jesus’ life in me shine through, and praying, loving, encouraging, listening to Holy Spirit for direction in order to fulfill my calling, in His strength.
