Momentum- Live Out Your Divine Purpose! Part 5

The Fifth and final purpose of your life is to fulfill your divine mission. Jesus said: “In the same way that you gave me a mission in the world, I give them a mission in the world.” John 17:18 (MSG) The Bible teaches us that Jesus came to seek and save those who are lost without Him. In 2 Corinthians 5:15, the Apostle Paul said, “Our firm decision is to work from this focused center: One man died for everyone. That puts everyone in the same boat. He included everyone in his death so that everyone could also be included in his life, a resurrection life, a far better life than people ever lived on their own.” (MSG) The only purpose that you will not fulfill for eternity is this final one. Life is nothing more than a window of time to find God, and then the judgement. We must focus our lives on this important purpose.
The word for this final purpose is Evangelism, meaning, 'to share the good news.' It is, in my opinion, the most ignored purpose in most peoples lives. My life, and our church, will always be focused on this purpose. Lost people matter to God and they should matter to us. Jesus gave us this incredible promise when he said: “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to Me for real rest...and you’ll recover your life...and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” Matt. 11:28-30 (MSG) That is good news we can share with others!
Have you made that decision? Have you received the good news that Jesus can forgive your sins if you turn to Him? Don't ever forget, “It makes no difference who you are or where you're from—if you want God and are ready to do as He says, the door is open.” Acts 10:35 (MSG) You can turn to Jesus today and receive life!

This prayer below by Rick Warren, is a one that I hope that you'll not only pray, but one that you will live! Live for God's purposes and you'll live a rich and fulfilled life!

A PRAYER OF PURPOSE
Dear God, thank You for creating me and loving me. I want to fulfill the purposes that You created me for. So starting today, I really want to get to know and love and trust You. I want my life to bring You pleasure and I want to become a part of Your family. Help me to grow more like Your Son Jesus, and to use my life to follow and serve You. Thank You for sending Jesus to die for me. In the weeks ahead, help me to understand Your vision and mission for the rest of my life.

"Genesis Week" -an excerpt from my upcoming mini-book!

Here's an excerpt from one of the "Small Book, Big Difference" mini-books that I'm currently writing. It's called, "Genesis Week- Creating A Life Worth Living One Day At A Time" and will be out this summer or eventually.  ____________________________________________________________   “... God, make a fresh start in me, shape a Genesis week from the chaos of my life...”.   Psalm 51:7-15 (MSG) On July 4, 2012, hundreds of thousands of people eagerly gathered in San Diego, California, to enjoy an 18-minute fireworks show that was advertised as one of the "biggest in the nation."   People waited for hours for what was sure to be the best ever Big Bay Boom. Hundreds of thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours had been spent on planning and preparing for this epic event.  A few minutes before the anticipated 9 p.m. start time, the show began, unexpectedly. In one loud blast, all of the fireworks ignited simultaneously. Th
