Living Life On Purpose

Living Life On Purpose

Hebrews 5:8 (NKJV)

though He was a Son, yet He learned obedience by the things which He suffered. 

If John 3:16 is the most recognisable verse in the Bible, then Romans 8:28 must be a close second.

Romans 8:28 (NKJV) 28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

Living Life On Purpose

Christians love this verse because it says that everything, the good and the bad. Everything that happens in our lives will be used by God for a good purpose.

While this may be comforting Romans 8:28 doesn’t tell us what the good purpose is, but we are told in the next verse Romans 8:29 (NKJV)

29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. God’s purpose is to make us look more like His son.

Our lives follow the same pattern of testing that Jesus followed. He learned obedience by the things which He suffered. Hebrews 5:8 (NKJV) 

Our purpose is to obey God, as Jesus did. As we trusted obey Him, we will begin to look more and more like His son.

Whether this day is Good or Bad in your sight, it has moved you closer to the image of Jesus, which is right where He wants you today.
