Series: Building Life in Purpose
"Your Life in Purpose"
“The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.” (Mark Twain)
“I have labored to NO PURPOSE; I have spent my strength in vain and for nothing.” (Isaiah 49:4 NIV)
“I’ve worked hard, but how HOPELESS it is! I’ve used up my strength, but have accomplished nothing.” (Isaiah 49:4 GNT)
1. GIVES MEANING TO YOUR WORK & LIFE!
2. ULTIMATE PURPOSE OF THE UNIVERSE IS TO THE GLORY OF GOD
“Everything comes from God alone. Everything lives by his power, and everything is for his glory.” (Romans 11:36 LB)
“The Lord has made everything for his own purpose.” (Prov. 16:4 NLT)
3. YOU EXIST FOR GOD’S PURPOSE, NOT YOUR OWN
"…we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
(Rom. 8:28 NIV).
