Purpose: what’s the essence?
Can you imagine a door without a key? A car without gasoline? A pen without ink? Transfer from ipod to computer without any software? Go from one plac to another without moving from the same place? All of those above mentioned will not function well without some certain thing that will be able for them to work right. Just like life. What would be the effect if life has no purpose?
Life without a purpose
What would be the probable results if life is not centered with any dreams, aspirations, inspirations, ideals and goals? There are things what would happen to life without a purpose.
Am I worthless? How much I worth?
First thing, life seems to be insignificant. No value. No sense at all. You are just living in this world just for the sake of living. Your life is of no worth. A single centavo would even worth more than your life. That’s the reason why people out there are selling themselves because they think that’s only the worth of their lives. Too bad it may seems but isn’t it awkward to see people who are willing to give themselves for millions of dollars not to think that a single life is incomparable to any worth of money.
Secondly, life seems to be futile. You may be the richest person in this whole wide world, but it you’ll be futile if you are not able to handle those riches. You’ll be futile if you do not know how to manage your invested life, that life without a purpose.
"Utterly meaningless" - King Solomon
Third thing, life seems to be meaningless. No meaning. Not even a word that defines your life will be found in a dictionary. You will just live and eventually you’ll die at a certain period of time. That’s it, no meaning at all.
Life without a purpose is like an empty box.
Last, life seems to be empty. It contains nothing. You may have gathered up so many experiences and everything but in the end you’ll realize that they are all nothing. They are all imaginations, hallucinations and only seen in movies and dreams. Empty!
Life with a purpose
Now, if life without a purpose is pretty scary and awful, what would be the directly opposite of it? Life with a purpose! There are certain keys for us to know about this.
You have a Purpose!
First, we must know that we have a purpose. Every life has its own purpose. Even the smallest creature has a purpose. We must know that we worth so much and we have a certain thing to do, a certain purpose to fulfill.
We are called to make disciples.
Second thing is that our purpose is to win souls and make disciples. For all, we know that Jesus came here on earth to be the price of all our sins. But to think what else He did here on earth, that is very easy, He made disciples of His to make disciples that will make disciples. It started with His 12, and then the story goes on. Christ Jesus has a mission here on earth, and we are to follow it, to be the commissioners, taking the great commission God has given us, as stated in Matthew 28:19.
You do not move backwards, nor sidewards, but forward.
Third thing to remember is that we must never be fulfilled unless our purpose is fulfilled. Never stop! Go on! Keep moving forward. We must never stop, never hold back, and never give up winning this purpose in our lives.
Not yesterday, nor tomorrow, but today!
And lastly, we will fill that purpose today. Not yesterday, not even tomorrow, but today! Today is the start. Today is the new beginning of God’s plan in our lives. Keep focused on His plan for us, on our purpose in life, and we’ll always be winning and crown victors of every trials and problems that come our way.
