Marriage and Family: 5 Questions to discover what your life is really about?April 13, 2016
Over the last 15 years of ministry, we have had the privilege of meeting thousands of people from all walks of life, different denominations from various parts of this great country. The one thing we know, people are people. We all have challenges, we all have a past, we all have a back-drop of experiences that has formed our way of thinking, we all have dreams and we all have a question about life! In other words: "what is my life really about?"
Sometimes, we wrap the "what is my life really about" question by our decisions of who will I marry, where will I work, how many kids will we have, where will I live, etc. And while all of these impact the quality of our life, they do not answer the question "what is my life really about?" That question is much deeper.
So, we've written this for all of you who are looking for the answer to this deeper question. Here's what we know, we are Spiritual beings. This is critical because the "what is my life really about" question has to then be answered through the lenses of the impact you can make spiritually on this world. To be clear, what we mean by spiritual impact is the impact you can make on this world as you reflect and advance the Kingdom of Jesus Christ. Our pastor always reminds us that the three greatest days in our lives are, one, when we are born, two when we are born again, and three when we discover how our being born again can be uniquely used by God to fulfill HIS purpose as we live out our purpose for HIM. When you discover this, you will be discovering what your life is really about!
Here's some ways you can begin the journey of discovering this for yourself. We encourage you to take some time, get alone with God, and ask yourself these questions.
1. What makes you come alive spiritually?
2. How and to whom will you give your spiritual strengths away?
3. What are you going to do with what God has given you?
4. What dream has the Lord birthed in your heart for HIM?
5. What if you die and the God dream you have in your heart is never pursued, how will you explain that to God?
We don't know how you, with the help of the Holy Spirit, will answer these questions. But we do know this, God has birthed within all of HIS followers a calling, seeds of greatness, a glory to be displayed of HIS handiwork upon their lives. He wants to take our spiritual giftings, passions and dreams and use it for HIS Glory. He wants to take our past and pain and turn it into a passion for HIS Kingdom. He wants to take our mess-ups and turn them into opportunities for ministry. He wants to take our stories of HIS deliverance and grace and give that away so that others can be delivered as well. He has left us here to finish the work he started. The work outlined in Luke 4:18-21 where Christ himself read his mission statement. And we know this, when you give yourself away for the cause of Christ, you actually discover what your life is really about.
We'd love to help you further in your own discovery process.
