Are You Unfulfilled? Jesus Offers Purpose.

For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them. – Ephesians 2:10

The enemy wants you to feel like your life doesn’t have real meaning.  The enemy wants you live in such a way that it doesn’t make a difference.  The enemy wants you to waste your life.   But if you have given your life to Jesus, nothing you do for Him will ever be in vain; to the contrary, it is only what you do for Him that will matter in eternity.  As CT Studd wrote, “Only one life, ’twill soon be past, only what’s done for Christ will last.”  You were made by Him, for Him and like Him as an image-bearer of God to show and tell the world all about Him through your good works.  When we put our trust in Jesus, we were created anew in Him for this life of good works which God has planned out and supplies what is necessary to carry out.  This is why you were made: to finish the good works that God has prepared long ago for you to do.  Love God.  Love people.  Make disciples.  Share your faith.  Be kind.  Help others.  Encourage.  Bear burdens.  Speak life.   Make Jesus look good in your life by trusting Him, thanking Him and treasuring Him. Do all to the glory of God.  God didn’t create you primarily so you could make a lot of money, take a lot of trips, have a lot of fun, and indulge in a lot of temporary pleasures.  Those things may be a part of your experience, but they are a means to this end: “to let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven (Matthew 5:16).”   God means to work through your life to change other people’s lives so that He is honored in them and they are happy in Him now and forever. Today, be mindful of the beautiful calling upon your life:  You were made to be an image-bearer.   A difference-maker.  A Jesus-treasurer.  A God-glorifier.   A good works doer.   That is why you are here … so, go shine your light!
