CHOSEN BEFORE CREATION


When we talk about the purpose of life it’s surprising that there are many people today who do not know the purpose or call in their life. They are confused about their future. Indeed, in this life no one knows what will happen but we need to know that our life has a purpose. Jeremiah 1:5 NKJV says, "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you..."  Even though this verse was written for Jeremiah, it speaks to us the same way. God has known us long before we were formed, and no one knows us well except God.


God did not create us without a clear purpose. Several years ago, Rick Warren wrote the book, "Purpose Driven Life", which became a bestseller. This book tells us that our life should be directed by divine purpose, that is, the purpose of God who formed us. Our goal is to glorify God's name through our lives (2 Thess. 1:12).  Let us know our calling and live our life accordingly.


Each of us is created by God with a beautiful task and purpose to glorify God's name.
