Know Why You're Here, part one

Luke 4:42-43
At daybreak Jesus went out to a solitary place. The people were looking for him and when they came to where he was, they tried to keep him from leaving them. But he said, "I must preach the good news of the kingdom of God to the other towns also, because that is why I was sent.

There are things that can only be done by you. There are words which, when spoken by you, can bring healing to someone. There are people who will only understand when YOU explain things to them.

Did you know your uniqueness is of great importance to God?

Jesus wasn’t the only one with a purpose. We all have significant contributions to make in this world.

Just like Jesus knew why God had sent him to a geographical location, we should know what we’re doing here. We should know why our feet are on this particular square of sod.

How do you find out your unique purpose?

Jesus knew his goals, his itinerary, and his focus for the day because he knew His Father. Because of that relationship, he was able to avoid time-wasting relationships. Not everyone who spoke to him was interested in what he had to say. Some just wanted to kill him.

If your relationship with God is close, then you can avoid wasting time with activities you weren’t supposed to do. If you know God, then you know He is love and He leads by His love.

Sometimes people will ask you to stay with them, but because of your good relationship with God, you know He is leading you somewhere else. If you know your goals, your itinerary, and your focus because you’ve been with God, then you can leave those people with love in your voice.

So once you find out you’re a child of God, get to know Him. Develop that relationship. From that close relationship, you'll learn why you were put on this earth.
