Benefits of a purpose driven life
  • Knowing your purpose gives meaning to your life
  • Jer 2911 I know what I'm doing. I have it all
    planned out--plans (purpose) to take care of you,
    not abandon you, plans to give you the future you
    hope for (New Century Version)
  • Knowing your purpose simplifies your life
  • Isa 263 You, Lord, give perfect peace to those
    who keep their purpose firm and put their trust
    in you (Todays English Version)
  • Knowing your purpose focuses your life
  • Without purpose, you will keep changing
    directions, school subjects, university courses,
    jobs, relationships, churches etc.
  • Magnifying glass !
  • Phi 313 I am focusing all my energies on this
    one thing Forgetting the past and looking
    forward to what lies ahead (New Living
    Translation)

Benefits of a purpose driven life
  • Knowing your purpose motivates your life
  • George Bernard Shaw wrote
  • This is the true joy of life the being used up
    for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty
    one being a force of nature instead of a
    feverish, selfish clot of ailments and
    grievances, complaining that the world will not
    devote itself to making you happy
  • Knowing your purpose prepares you for eternity
  • Its is not what others say about your life but
    what God says
  • Earthly legacies are short sighted

11
Eventually, we're all going to end up kneeling
side by side in the place of judgment, facing
God. (Rom 1410c)(New Living Translation)
  • On the day of judgment God will ask from each one
    of us
  • What did you do with my Son, Jesus Christ ?
  • What did you do with what I gave you ?
  • The first question will determine where you will
    spend eternity.
  • The second question will determine what you do in
    eternity.

12
Conclusion
  • Living on purpose is the path to peace
  • Isa 263 You, Lord, give perfect peace to those
    who keep their purpose firm and put their trust
    in you (Todays English Version)
