“But you, Timothy, certainly know what I teach, and how I live, and what my purpose in life is.”
A pastor, who was a man of few words apparently, was asked “if his old self could speak to his younger self, what would be the message he would pass along to his younger self?” He looked at the interviewer and said “Hold the course” and immediately returned to what he was doing.
So the interviewer wanted more.
So the interviewer further queried…..”Like keep doing what you are doing? YEP
Keep Reading the Bible?
Keep Walking with the Lord? YEP, HOLD THE COURSE
Sometimes, it is just that simple. Just keep doing the same God things each and every day hoping to get just a little bit better each day and have just a little closer walk with God.
Are we people of purpose? Paul wrote this to Timothy, “But you, Timothy, certainly know what I teach, and how I live, and what purpose in life is” 2 TIMOTHY 3: 10 NLT
And what was that purpose? He says in Philippians, “I WANT TO KNOW CHRIST AND EXPERIENCE THE MIGHTY POWER THAT RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD. I WANT TO SUFFER WITH HIM, SHARING IN HIS DEATH, SO THAT ONE WAY OR ANOTHER I WILL EXPERIENCE THE RESURRECTION FROM THE DEAD!” (3: 10-11 NLT)
Paul’s purpose and his reason to exist were to know God and become more like Christ. That is it simply put. KNOW GOD, BE LIKE CHRIST
What is your purpose?
What is my purpose?
WE ALL HAVE A PURPOSE….IS OUR PURPOSE KNOWING GOD AND BECOMING LIKE CHRIST?
THIS MY FRIENDS, IS THE CHRISTIAN LIFE….BE PEOPLE OF CHARACTER AND PURPOSE…..KNOW GOD, LOVE GOD, BE LIKE CHRIST….LOVE ALL OTHERS!!!!!
“Leaders set a clear direction and are crystal clear about how to get there and though the means may change along the way, the destination stays the same and you will arrive by staying the course.”
