Purpose Guy

Made for Glory

From Joseph: This post is adapted from an original post titled “Why Am I Here?” written by my wife, Temi, for a Christian youth magazine 3 years ago. It’s been refreshed and I’d love for you to read it and be stirred by her words.

It’s easy to think; “I’m on earth to have fun and enjoy life, grow old and experience the inevitable.” 

Don't Waste Your Life

Fun is alright, if you don’t compromise your faith. But consider the reality that while you’re busy having fun, others are shaping their future and living the God-intended life.

You’re accountable

Scripture talks about wise and foolish builders; some built on a rock, others on sand. Or remember the story of talents? God has given you an opportunity to invest your talents and yield return in honour of His name. You’re accountable friends.

You are.

Some people say (consciously or subtly):

“When I’m 50, I’ll remember God and be in His good books. For now, I must lead my life… my way”,

But death calls unannounced regardless of age, background, social status, religion, nationality or gender. There are no guarantees for tomorrow.

All we have is today — grab it and make your ways right with God. There’s no better time to ask yourself the ultimate question, Why Am I Here?

Glory, your ultimate purpose

The summary of your life must be to please God everyday and in everything. You were created for glory! Glory is your ultimate purpose. Let that sink in. If glory awaits you, start living it today.

God created you and must have first place in your life. Re-order your priorities today. Tomorrow maybe too late. Don’t harden your heart, don’t waste your life, don’t miss out on your God ordained destiny.

Glory is your ultimate purpose. Start living it here!

    We aren’t promised our next breathe. We must make each moment count- for eternity, not just for our fleshly pleasure. We will give account for what we do or don’t do in this life.
