How to find your purpose in life
July 20, 2012
Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.
2 Corinthians 5:20
I saw a news story not long ago about some of the poverty in many portions of our nation. The reporter went into some of the roughest areas of some American cities to see how many of these people, who had absolutely nothing at all, lived their lives. And as they were interviewing some of these people, my heart was so heavy. None of them, it seemed, had any purpose in life.
They asked one young man, "What are your dreams?" And he said, "I don’t know, just stay here." As I heard those words, I was struck by how many Christians live their spiritual lives just that way. They go to church on Sunday, maybe read their Bibles, but never reach for anything more.
As believers, God calls us to have a purpose. It's not just to go to church; it's to make a real impact for His name. We have been given a mission as ministers of reconciliation. And because of that, our work is never done until we go home to be with the Lord or He returns.
In Christ, you're an ambassador of the Kingdom. Live your life to tell others of His goodness, and make an impact for eternity!
BE AN AMBASSADOR OF GOD'S KINGDOM BY LIVING A LIFE OF IMPACT AND MAKING A DIFFERENCE FOR GOD'S PURPOSES!

Face the future with hope!
We live in uncertain times—with global economic problems, the threat of terrorism, natural disasters, and violence around the world. But as Christians, you and I can walk into the future with confidence and courage because God has given us hope! And He has provided a clear picture of these last days in His Word.
I’ll take you right to the heart of Israel in Israel 2011—to the Sea of Galilee, the Mount of Olives and more—to help you walk the footsteps of Jesus Himself and see how this wonderful land plays a part in the last days. And Signs of the Times will show you how you can be ready for Christ’s return.
