The verse I am using to launch FlashForward is Ephesians 2:10 “God has made us what we are. In Christ Jesus, God made us to do good works, which God planned in advance for us to live our lives doing.” (NCV)
Think through that for a minute. The entire goal of our lives is to figure out and fulfill our divine purpose – the reason we were born. I wonder how many people ever even consider this, let alone actually do it. Here’s the thing, if people don’t know to do it, they certainly won’t. So this is a crucial message that we have to get out. Once we talk about it, we actually have to get people to buy into it. It’s true, God has something awesome for you to do.
Come on out on Sunday and we will discuss it more in depth. Here’s a little hint of one thing we will discuss – your purpose will not take place in a vacuum. In other words, your purpose is connected with others and with their purposes. There is great power in that idea. God gives you and me and others something good to do for Him. Alone, our job doesn’t seem like much, but put it together with a few million others and, POW!, the world changes. Let that simmer for a minute.
Make plans, see you on Sunday.
