Living On Purpose: Ministry

Living on Purpose: "Ministry flows out of an intimate relationship with the Creator". Inasmuch that worship is an overflow of the same relationship, what we do is the natural respond to our love for Him knowledgeably (mind, soul & spirit) and experientially (heart).

Living On Purpose

Living on Purpose

God never intended us to live without a purpose. Life is purposeful and wonderful. We are created with a purpose, for a purpose. Today, I have decided for this season to consider my life and begin living it with a deeper sense of purpose.

I've have gone through the "40 Days of Purpose Life" by Rick Warren, Senior Pastor of Saddleback Church in the USA. In the process of it, he summarized life in 5 simple points. If you are interested about it, go and get the book and read it. Good information and wonderful for application. However, we must take it further and begin pondering upon the truths of living purposefully.

Here, I would dedicate most of my postings with snippets of wisdom from scriptures, authors, newsletters and other sources of inspirational truths of Living on Purpose. Some might be long essays while most would be short inspirational truths from great thinkers of past and present centuries.

It is said that all truths are divinely inspired regardless of culture or religion. As long as the truths resonates with the scripture, they are truths to be expressed. You might ask, "What does truth have to do with Living on Purpose?" Well, everything! Truth allows us to find our purpose and to have it with clarity. Hence, the journey of Living on Purpose is actually a journey of truths. Truth is not relative. If it was so, it would not be consider a truth.

So, I pray that as I wait upon the Spirit of God, and read the scriptures, books, novels and more, these wisdom and truth would materialize into words. Words that are from Eternity and would continue into eternity. Words that would propel us into a life of wonders and profound joy, hope and love.

Let me therefore encourage you to seek Truth for it would result in true freedom and a life of great purpose... one with a destiny. Begin Living on Purpose!
