Keller: We are all created for a purpose

Published 12:00 am Wednesday, July 10, 2019

I believe that we were all created for a purpose. If I had died at the age of 45, I would have died without knowing God’s purpose for my life.

When something bad happens in your life that is devastating to you, it may be God’s way of getting your attention. I lost a banking job which I loved and thought that was the end of being a success in life. At the time, I didn’t know what success was.

Years later, God directed me to labor in His ministry of Get High on Life.  If success is being in God’s will for your life, today I’m successful.

Recently, I read that there are the following three types of people in this world:

1) Those with no life purpose — They don’t really live; they just exist.

2) Those who have the wrong life purpose — They may be super achievers, people who have climbed the ladders of financial, political, and social success only to find their ladder was leaning against the wrong wall.

3) Those who have the right life purpose — They know why they were created.  They know why God put them on this earth, and they are all about fulfilling that purpose.  That is the life that brings a smile to the face of God.  That is success that lasts.  It has nothing to do with popularity, power, or possessions.  It has everything to do with purpose, because that is the only thing that brings a God-given assurance of success.

As we were driving to church Sunday, I told Jeanne that I never knew I could be so happy and at peace with myself.  I then said, “God has been good to us!”

“God is still being good to us!” she responded.

That tells me the best is yet to come.

Do you know your life’s purpose?  If not, ask God, and He will reveal it to you.
