To Save Us – Christ’s Purpose!

26 01 2013

7 P of the Life of Christ - 1Today we look at the second P of the Life of Christ that of Purpose. Last time we looked at the first P, Plan based on Jeremiah 29:11. Out of every plan is the purpose for the man.

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

                             John 3:16

Here in a simple and often memorized verse we have Christ’s purpose, to save mankind. This verse also reveals the value Christ’s life has in ours, and so we understand Christ gave his life so that we would perish, his living legacy (value) to all of creation!

Purpose also answers the question we hunger to know, why. We think knowing the why’s of life would bring us peace, when in fact it leads to more struggle.Maze with ball on top

Struggling with purpose is part of the human condition, for to truly walk fully into our purpose requires the laying down of self, our pride and need for safety and control. We see this in the life of our savior Jesus who knowing his purpose still struggled in the garden of Gethsemane (Matt 26:36-45) asking the Lord to take away the cross.

Often we know the why’s of our lives as husbands, wives, parents, and in our jobs, but it is the struggle to walk with integrity as Christ did which trips us up and so next time we will look at the third P of the Life of Christ, path!

Blessings and Complete Joy,

Millie
