This is the reason why every person on earth, when we become adults, are searching for our purpose in life. We have been created like this! The day when you left school or college, you had to make one of the most important decision in life, namely, what am I going to do with my life?
An empty and unfulfilled vacuum exists in every person's life, until we have discovered our purpose. God made us like that, and unless we are seriously searching for our purpose, our lives will remain unfulfilled!
How tragic to see multitudes of people across the spectrum of life -- rich and poor, old and young -- on the refuse-dump of unfulfilled dreams. People grab hold of every blade of straw in their search for fulfillment. Some surrender themselves to music, sports, work, psychology, pleasure, social media, or money. Others go further and become involved in alcohol, pornography, sex and crime -- only to discover that none of these things are able to bring true and lasting fulfillment!
Fulfillment always goes hand in hand with purpose. In order to find fulfillment in life, you have find your purpose!
Is it your parents? Is it your ancestors? Is it your class or status in society? Is it your upbringing, education, or qualifications? Is it your talents, and abilities? Is it yourself? The answer to this question contains the key to discovering your purpose!
I have great news for you. To find your purpose will not be difficult at all -- for it has already been determined by your Creator!
In order to understand your purpose, you firstly have to understand who you are! Have you ever tried to build your family tree on Ancestry.Com? Some people discovered that they are descended from a poor or workers class, while others discover that they are descended from a nobility or wealthy class. Have you ever heard the story of someone who lived in poverty and later discovered that they are descended from a royal or wealthy family? There are many such stories, but the tragedy of humanity is that millions of people across the world are living in spiritual, physical and emotional poverty because they don't know who they are!
Do you know who you are? Do you really know from whom you are descended? The answer to this question is the first step towards discovering your purpose. The answer to this question will reveal your purpose.
Your great-great grandfather and -mother were Adam and Eve -- who were created by God in His image. We read the story of creation in the first chapter of the Bible, in Gen 1:26-28: "Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion ... over all the earth ... So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. Then God blessed them, and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion ..."
The Bible is God's revelation of His purpose and plan for humanity from creation to consummation. In Genesis we read what God's purpose in creation was and how everything began -- in Revelation we read how everything is going to end and how God's purpose for humanity will be fulfilled. The rest of the Bible is devoted to how God is implementing His purpose through humanity.
God's purpose in creation is to create a posterity and family in His own image, and a bride for His Son to reign with Him over creation in eternity. This is also God's primary purpose for you on earth. God's primary purpose for you on earth is to become a member of His family, to be conformed into His image, and to be equipped to rule with Him over creation in eternity.
However, there is a reason why God's plan and purpose for your life is not naturally fulfilled in your life. God also has a perfect plan for the fulfillment of His purpose in your life. We would like to explain this Divine plan to you on the following page. Please follow us to the next page.
