YLD (21/01/24) – What is the Purpose of My Life?

Date

January 24, 2021



Summary

My purpose is to know God, love Him, enjoy Him and glorify Him.
God made me for Himself. I belong to God because He created
me . When I do that, I am truly satisfied.
Psalm 16:11, Genesis 1:26, 1 Peter 4:11

Isn’t my life about knowing myself?
We know ourselves by looking to God, not inward.
Demonstration of kitchen utensils.
Tools work best when used for the purpose they were intended.
People live best when living according to their purpose in life.
People are created to enjoy God.
God designed people to have a relationship with Him. (love Him).

Isn’t it just as important to achieve my potential, make friends and
enjoy life?
True success is glorifying God in whatever He calls us to do.
Without God something will be always missing. (donut song).
Friendship doesn’t satisfy us; especially now in lockdown.
God invites us to taste and see His goodness (Psalm 34:8)
The more time we spend getting to know God, the more we enjoy
Him and enjoy life itself. I can testify on my recent experience on
quarantine days.

What does it mean to glorify God?
God is glorified when His character is revealed and people
understand what He is like.

Everything God created reveals something about HIm.
God made people to display His character. ( loving people who
are not lovable, being generous and kind, forgiving and extending
God’s grace to others….Can you think of any ways to glorify
God?
