We are each given a life to live and get to make the decision for ourselves on how we will do it. We should aim to live a fulfilling life, rather than just going through the motions. Jesus came that we would have life and life more abundantly. God created each of us with a specific purpose, and we decide whether or not to fulfill that purpose. How about you? How will you choose to live your life? Will you receive the gift of Jesus? If you don’t feel qualified, will you still accept the calling God gives you?
Choose to live life to the fullest
Firstly, many years ago, I learned that God doesn’t call the qualified but qualifies the called! Secondly, I tried to disqualify myself because I felt unqualified until God gave me the ultimatum to do it or lose it! So today as we consider and reflect upon this life we have been given, let’s be the dads who answer the call to be the dads and step up to finish the good works God has prepared in advance for us to accomplish!
Life is to be lived on purpose, with purpose, and for a purpose
Firstly, have you made the decision to receive Jesus and live according to the spirit rather than the flesh? Secondly, have you crucified your flesh and natural tendencies with Christ, allowing Jesus to live in and through you? Thirdly, are you ready to live by faith, adhering to, relying on, and completely trusting in Jesus, the Son of God? Fourthly, are you ready to live by faith in the one who loves you and gave Himself up for you? Finally, could today be the start of living for a greater purpose because God loves you so much that He sent His one and only Son so that you and I could be saved rather than condemned?
