Live With Purpose

We’ve all wondered, “What’s my purpose in life?”  It’s a heavy question. Maybe we feel like our purpose is to work and provide for our family. Maybe we are the caretakers for our families. Perhaps we are students and believe our purpose right now is to prepare ourselves for what’s to come. But, no matter where we are in life, or what we do, we are all called to the same purpose.

Impossible? No way! In Colossians 3:18-25, God reveals our purpose, a purpose of everyone. What is it? Well, it’s pretty simple, but once grasped, it will change our lives entirely. God tells us that whatever we do, whatever position He has given us in our lives, we are called, as children of God, to glorify Him in anything we do. Because God has given us life through Him, we find purpose in our everyday life. This means that our work is done for the Lord, not for money or for a grade. Doing work and going through life with the purpose of glorifying God will fill us with joy. Imagine if we all showed up to work being joyful? Imagine what kind of light could be shown into the darkness if we all lived and worked with the single purpose of glorifying God, the giver of life!


  • How can I glorify God in one area of my daily life?
  • What is one way I can be a light in my workplace, school, etc?
