Day 1 Purpose Driven Life Reflections

Day 1 -- THINKING ABOUT MY PURPOSE

Point to Ponder: It's Not About Me.

Verse to Remember: "Everything got started in Him and finds its purpose in Him." (Colossians 1:16b)

Question to Consider: "In spite of all the advertising around me, how can I remind myself that life is really about living for God, not myself?

Some REFLECTION NOTES:

The gates of today's advertising are always trickery. They can brainwash the mind and soul away from God's light and truth. If I'm not careful, I'll be a victim. I can forget or ignore that I'm a Christian or I should live a life for God.

Life is about living for God, not myself. To remind myself of that inspite of all the advertising around me, I wish to be playful. I mean, I stop taking myself too seriously. That takes courage. But as a Christian, I need to take a deep breath of His Spirit and defeat my self-centeredness to live for God.

Word and prayer are my ideal companions for this purpose. They develop my protections and arm me with weapons to fight the spiritual war as I live in the world. I invoke my audience of One, which strongly moves me on.
