In a world where selfies and narcissism is new normal, we must actively remind ourselves of our ultimate purpose. While some point to career or personal passions, the believer is different. We may have dreams and goals after which we strive but they need to be orbiting around one central point – to grow in our relationship with our Creator and molded to the image of His Son.
In this world we are going to have troubles; no one will be immune to death. While heartaches and disease surround us, it is often the blessings that cause us to drift from our purpose. Let it not be so.
“And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. 29 For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son…” – Romans 8:28-29a
