Purpose The Master of Motivation

Rate this item
(7 votes)

Proverbs 20:5 The purposes of a man’s heart are deep waters, but a man of

understanding draws them out.

 

The greatest tragedy in life is not death, but life without a reason. It is dangerous to

be alive and not know why you were given life.

 

From the beginning of man’s history as we know it, mankind has been grappling

with the age old questions: Why am I here? What is the reason for my existence?

What is the meaning of my life? These questions are universal. They lurk deep with-

in the secret chambers of every human being on earth; regardless of their race,

color, ethnic heritage, status or nationality. The deepest craving of the human spirit

is to find a sense of significance and relevance. The search for relevance in life is the

ultimate pursuit of man. There must be intent and inspiration, you must have a

dream, desire and determination!

 

PURPOSE IS THE MASTER OF MOTIVATION and THE MOTHER OF

COMMITMENT. It is the source of ENTHUSIASM and the WOMB OF

PERSEVERANCE. PURPOSE gives birth to Hope and instills the Passion to Act.

We must not become out of touch with values that God deems important! This

world has become an incubator of stress, depression, hopelessness and fear. It is

important for us to realize until Purpose is discovered, existence has no meaning.

All things begin and end with Purpose! Purpose precedes production. Purpose is the

why that explains the reason for existence! Without Purpose there is no reason for

living, no goals, dreams or aspirations thus you become a wandering generality. Ask

yourself the question what is my purpose in life and then set a goal and seek to

accomplish it.

 

God’s people have always been a people of definite purpose….God’s church was

not an afterthought of God. God is a world God and before time itself He chose to

reach a world not yet created; through the agency of the Church. Ephesians 1:4

God’s purpose is to seek and to save the lost, and we have been given what it takes

to accomplish His will. He has provided us with His Power, Presence and Purpose.

Purpose will always motivate you to ministry. You want to know how to serve God?

You serve God by serving people.
