What's My Life Purpose? & Wednesday's Christian LinkUp Party!


Did you know that Jesus created all things? Now since He did that, we can trust the Creator & Ruler of the universe with the very details of our lives! 

"For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him." -Colossians 1:16



According to Colossians 1:16, ALL things were created by Jesus and for Jesus. That includes you & me! For His glory!

Sadly, our world shouts to everyone to live for your own glory. How long can that last? Not very long. We constantly are bombarded with: 

Have it your way.

You're number one.

In the Westminster Shorter Catechism question number one asks, "What is the chief end of man?"
Man's chief end is to glorify God, 
and to enjoy Him for ever.

May you live for that aim! The highest purpose on earth. That's my life's purpose, and you can make it yours.

Have you written your life's purpose out? I'd love to read it.

I like to get mine out from time to time and read it to remind myself of why I'm here.

Gather your family tonight, and read Colossians 1:16, and look up at the starry night that Jesus made! Worship him by singing a verse of your favorite Christmas carol! For more, see my post on December 4 Advent Reading on Jesus the Creator. To see all 24 Advent Readings, click here.
