Our life, here on earth, has a purpose and a destiny that God has given to each and every one of us. God has set us on this earth, at this point in time, for a reason. He has given us each a goal and purpose to fulfill. Our lives are for God, because He made us for His purpose.
"Before I (God) made you in the womb, I already knew you; Before you were born I set you apart, I called You to My calling...” - Jeremiah 1:4-5 (My Paraphrase)
"Do not be ashamed of Christ and the gospel...For He has saved us and called us to a holy calling...according to His purpose...that He has given to us before the beginning of time." - 2 Timothy 1:8-9 (Paraphrase)
We are never too young to step out and begin fulfilling our God given destiny!
As a young believer in Christ Jesus we are to: "Let no one despise our youth, but be an example to other believers in what we say, in our actions, in love, in spirit, in faith, and in purity." - 1 Timothy 4:12-13 (Paraphrase)
"Do not say 'I am a youth,' For you will go to everyone that I (God) send you to, and whatever I command you to speak, you will speak. And do not be afraid of them, for I, God, will be with you, to help you." - Jeremiah 1:7-8 (My Paraphrase)
We are now living in the end times, God is coming soon, and He does not want anyone to go to hell. God wants everyone to believe in Him, and have a relationship with Him. This is a wonderful time to be alive. And it is a great privilege for us to be able to live in these times. For God promised us that: "In the last days, I (God) will pour out My Spirit (Holy Spirit) on all flesh (people), and from the young to the old, they will all prophesy, see visions, dream dreams. And I (God) will show wonders in heaven above, and the earth beneath...Before the great and coming day of the Lord, and anyone who calls on the name of the Lord, Jesus, they will be saved!" - Joel 2:28-32 (Paraphrase)
As a Christian, we are to do what Jesus, God, tells us to do. He didn't just save us just so that when we die we can go to heaven. But He saved us so we can have a relationship with Him, and so that we can be all that He made us to be. We all have an individual calling from God. You are called to a special calling that only you can fulfill, but we all have the same end goal.
"All authority has been given to Me (Jesus) in heaven and on earth. So go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. And baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son (Jesus), and the Holy Spirit; and teach them to do all that I tell you to. But for those who do not believe, they will be condemned. And for all those who believe, I will send signs and wonders, that through Me, and by Me, they will cast out demons, speak in new tongues, heal the sick, and nothing can hurt or harm them. For I, Jesus, am with you even to the end.” - Mathew 28:18-20 & - Mark 16:15-18 (My Paraphrase)
We have a Purpose. We have a Calling. We have a Destiny. We Have a Mission. It is time to Live It Out!
1. Ask God to reveal His plans for you
2. Listen and have faith to believe in His call for your life (because His call is always better and crazier than you can ever imagine, which means His call can sound crazy)
3. Step out in faith, and receive your calling / mission (Warning: Your full destiny won’t automatically be fulfilled immediately. You have to have faith, and perseverance, and keep walking with God. Because God’s calling for you is a whole life calling, here on earth. It is not something you can complete in a few days, months, years, or even decades. It is a whole life adventure!)
4. Live out the calling! Obey God’s word, and everything He tells you. Keep growing in your spiritual walk with God. Strengthen and grow closer in your relationship with God.
Our life is an ongoing adventure and relationship with Jesus. Our life is for God and God’s perfect & eternal Kingdom. The things of this earth will fade away. We will one day die. But the kingdom of God and all God’s children (us) will live forever and ever with Him.
