YOU HAVE A PURPOSE

“No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.”  (John 1:18)

John 1:18 reveals Jesus Christ dwelling in the close and intimate bosom of the Father.  This is the relationship Jesus has with the Father, and as a result we witness Jesus passionately fulfilling His purpose in life. “…He hath declared Him.” 

First of all a child is to know his Father.  He is to know him intimately. He is to be so close to his Father, that he finds safety, comfort, strength and wisdom from His Father.

In Ephesians 1:17 we see the desire of our Father, which is for us to have a spirit of wisdom and revelation in the close, personal, and intimate knowledge of Him. Only through this intimate relationship with our Father will we know and fulfill our purpose in life.

Through His relationship with His Father, Jesus was able to find and fulfill His purpose! 
 
You have a purpose as well.  Your purpose in life is two fold.   

First, you are to know God as your Father. Your destiny is to know Him personally and intimately. That is His desire as well. His desire is to be with you, and for you to know Him. He desires to be involved in your life. He longs for you to experience His intense love and passion for you, His dearly loved child.
 
Secondly as you begin to experience this type of relationship with Him you will want to declare Him, reveal Him, His love, His goodness, His strength, to the world.

According to 2 Corinthians 5:19; we are to communicate to the world how God is not holding their sin against them, and how they can come back home to the very intimate presence of the Father through faith in Jesus Christ.

Is there a reason for you being born?  Yes there is.

It’s to know God as your Father, your Dad, and make Him known.



YOU ARE BLESSED
