Bible References: Romans 4:3
Abraham fulfilled the Law yet he didn't have it. Repentance - I give the Lord my life and let Him direct it. Abraham did get things wrong, which is comforting. Yet he allowed God to direct his life. Man fell From grace in the garden. Jesus restores us.
The most important thing - I complete the mission given to me. The Bible is about God's people living with their God.
God created me to fulfil God's purpose. Being saved is not about getting saved, and then free for all.
One of the good news stories is if I give my life to Jesus, I go to heaven to live with Him. If I reject Him, I don't go to heaven. I live separated from him.
People are created for purpose. My Life Mission has universal elements: the ministry of reconciliation (we are all called to take Gospel to all people). Living the life with God. We are all given the ministry of reconciliation to tell people about Jesus. God has custom made me, made you to be a certain way. We are able to reach different people. We all are uniquely made, which is wonderful! We bring glory to God when we live out our mission in life.
John 17:1-12 - We (The Church) are one. When Jesus went to the cross, he conquered death and took back the authority which He gave to His People. To bring glory to the Father in heaven.
I complete my mission, to tell people about Jesus Christ and the Good News. It's not about what you get wrong, it's about what God does in our life.
God has an overall purpose on creating human beings. We are not human doings, we are human beings. In the West, we are trained to work, work, work...but God just wants to sit with you.
Sometimes God just wants us to sit with him and enjoy being with him.
Jesus had a purpose in coming to earth. First purpose we are created - worship God. We were made to have a relationship with God. We were made to serve God's purposes, not our own. We were made to last forever. God has set eternity in the hearts of men. It is God who has put the idea of eternity in our hearts. We want to be living forever - the question is "Will you walk with God or away from Him?"
The most important thing is that I complete the purpose God has for me in this life. To put my faith and trust in God.
