On-Purpose Discipleship

Living by Intention and not by Accident!
"The two most important days in your life are

the day you are born and
the day you find out why."
– Mark Twain
Answering the “WHY” of our lives is the most important lens we could even look through. This establishes the purpose of our lives. We’ve all heard of the Westminster Catechism: “1. What is the chief and highest end of man? A. Man’s chief and highest end is to glorify God, and fully
to enjoy Him forever.”
Every human being needs to travel through life with three life-altering, life-giving truths that will shape our journey. 1- I am the beloved creation of God; 2 – I am broken and bankrupt from my sin, 3 – Jesus has paid in full my way back home to paradise and perfection with God.
this framework allows for us to assume a rightful posture before God as “dependent but hope-filled!” The course of our lives will be sunk without Jesus. We need him and he wants us! In this new heaven-made partnership, we discover our creation purpose! Paul tapped into this
when he said:
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who
love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”

Romans 8:28 NIV
This Sunday, we are concluding our six-week, Post-Easter preaching journey into the heart of the “so-what-now-what?” of the resurrection story. Why does this matter? What does it mean? How then should we live? I have submitted to you that we need to embrace six key,
foundational, transformational facets or attributes to a new way of believing and behaving:
       1. FAVOR is for all people, not just insiders
       2. TRUST in God alone, not systems, powers, positions, or people.
       3. HUMILITY as our character for gentle and gracious living.
       4. ATTITUDE as Christ’s thinking to discern & decide life’s choices.
       5. FRUITFULNESS as Spirit's Produce to replace consumer success.
       6. RECONCILIATION as Restored Relationship to welcome all home.
Only as we live out of this approach to discipleship will we be afforded the opportunity to change lives and alter history. This is who Jesus was, how he lived and ministered, and who we are called to be as his ambassadors. May this be our last and greatest quest as we make our
pilgrimage through life.

Maranatha – Come Lord Jesus!
