Harrisonburg First Church of the Nazarene
Thank you so much for joining us this weekend! When we let God have full control over our lives, we're not giving up our purpose...we're gaining purpose! This life is about More Than Me. Is the direction of your life pointing more towards the truth of eternity or to the misconception of life being finite?

The Purpose of ME is often defined by...
-ACTIONS
-REPUTATION
-SOCIAL STANDING
-EFFORT
-PASSION
If we aren’t careful, building my life on my own purpose leads to a righteousness of my own.
Some attributes of the ‘RIGHTEOUSNESS OF ME’
...attends Church fairly regularly because it is expected.
...chooses what is popular over what is right. It desires to fit in both at church and outside church.
...does not want to be saved from sin, just the penalty of sin.
....does not really believe that the new life Jesus offers is better than the old life of sin.
...will serve God and others but there are limitations.
... does whatever is necessary to stay in its comfort zone.
... does not live by faith. Life is so structured that faith isn’t necessary.
...does not love Jesus as much as it loves self. It loves Him some but loves self more.
My purpose begins with ME.
His Purpose for me begins at the cross.
MY purpose is about MY POWER.
HIS Purpose for me begins with HIS POWER IN ME.
The power of God’s purpose changes us...

Instead of “What can I do?”
It becomes “What can you do in me?”

Instead of “What can I accomplish?”
It becomes “What can you accomplish through me?”

Instead of “My spotlight”
It becomes “His glory”

Instead of “I want to be famous”
It becomes “I want to be faithful”
The best purpose we find is not in our purpose but in God’s purpose for us. It is more than dreaming, more than your work, more than a collection of tasks, more than me.
