Foolish Things Christians Believe: My Life Is Not Futile Day 3

Motivation to Rise and Shine

God has made us what we are. He has created us in Christ Jesus to live lives filled with good works that he has prepared for us to do. Ephesians 2:10 GW

Christians can confidently claim that life does have a purpose. The experiences in our life, the swirl of events in the world may look like a meaningless spinning wheel, but that is not the way it’s supposed to be. It’s the condition of a sin broken creation. What we also believe is that Jesus gives us the hope of resurrection and a new creation; a sure future toward which we are all being directed. It is a promise given to us in Jesus Christ, For everything comes from him and exists by his power and is intended for his glory. All glory to him forever! Amen. Romans 11:36 NLT

Ephesians tells us that God not only invites us to join him in this recreating work, he specifically crafted us for it. Your personal package of gifts and abilities was shaped by God to perfectly fill the bill in your corner of humanity. (Ephesians 4:16) Have you felt the Holy Spirit stirring up the passion to dive in and bring God’s change to the world? (Philippians 2:13) Be confident that God will give you the power to proceed. Trust him for the perfect plan.

Have a conversation with Jesus. Tell him all the unanswered questions you have and lay them at his feet. Tell him you can trust his plan. Tell him you know the Holy Spirit will guide you through your Kingdom assignments.
