WHat's god's will for my life?

General Purpose --- Specific Purpose

And while we are all most interested in our specific purpose (“what should I be doing with my life?”) - we can never fully grasp the answer to that question without understanding our general purpose (the purpose for which God made all of us).

Let me put it another way, if you want to take the anxiety and the worry and the hand-wringing out of this question, then just spend some time in this question --- because when you begin to grasp your general purpose ---- your specific purpose becomes easy!

So, here’s our big idea for today --- When you take the whole of scripture, the Psalms, the prophets, the epistles, the gospels, and you condense all of the content into one statement about the purpose of our life --- it boils down to one thing. Ready? Here it is:

Your purpose in life is to glorify God right here and right now.


1 Corinthians 10:31: [W]hatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.

1 Corinthians 6:20: You were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.

Bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the ends of the earth—everyone who is called by my name, whom I created for my glory. Isaiah 43:6-7

Glorify God: accurately reflect or reveal the character of God with your life. 

If your life’s purpose is to accurately reflect the character of God, then you can begin to fulfill your life’s purpose right here and right now.

You don’t have to find the perfect job - to fulfill your purpose. You can begin fulfilling your purpose in the crummy job you have right here and now!

Find the perfect spouse, - you can fulfill your purpose in friendships and relationship you are in right here and right now.

the perfect life to fulfill you purpose. You can fulfill your purpose of glorifying God right now in whatever circumstances I find myself in.

You don’t have to pray for God to reveal His purpose to you. You can actually just begin fulfilling his purpose for you right now in your present state. 

By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit and so prove to be my disciples. As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. . . . These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full. John 15:8-11
