What am I really here for? III

Burning-Bush-1280

Today we conclude this series “What am I really Here for?” If you are just joining us I encourage you to start with part I before continuing. Now I would like to discuss this topic from the viewpoint (that I hold to) of using your talents and abilities to accomplish the will of another. Well let’s be clear I’m not referring to the will of just anyone other than you, I’m referring to a specific entity.

My mind takes me to the elemental categories of ALL things which are but two. The first of which is the Creator and the second are the creatures. Simply put because it’s apparent

that no one created themselves being born of a woman that we ALL belong to the group called creature. Having been created it would seem unreasonable to go to anything other than the creator to determine our purpose. I don’t want to debate, at this time, the method in which we go to our creator, but only that our purpose must be found in or from our Creator. It’s amazing to me, that which is seen can only create that which is seen. On the other hand the invisible created ALL things both invisible and visible. Herein lies the challenge how do we connect with the invisible Creator that created ALL things? How do we present ourselves accountable to the one responsible for ALL that exists?

It reminds me of the 1st firsthand account of the unseen God connecting with man to give him purpose.  That man according to scripture was Moses. Moses detailed this experience that forever changed him in the book of Exodus beginning in chapter 3. I invite you to read this account written by Moses explaining how he went beyond the obvious purpose in this life, to then connect with the unseen Creator and receive purpose. Exodus 2:21 says that Moses was content to dwell with the man. He married that man’s daughter and started a family. In other words Moses had all (in the natural) he needed. He had a wife, children, a home and a way to provide for his family so he was content. Now “Content in this life” is another series that I may do at another time. So What am I really here for? I pray that we all receive an encounter that leaves us with some clear instructions. Could it be that once we are content with our ambition in this life that God will reveal himself supernaturally to us also? I don’t know just thinking out loud (on paper).

Some things to consider after reading the following passages:

1) How old was Moses when he saw the burning bush?

2) Why did God send Moses back to the place he originally fled from?

3) How many excuses did Moses give God?

4) In what ways can you relate with Moses at this stage in his journey?

Exodus chapters 2 – 3

Seeking to promote true life through Jesus Christ by making the Gospel relevant to our lives today. Presenting the word of God as the final authority on how we as believers, hypocrites and those yet to believe should live in order to please our Creator. One thing is sure, the creature (all creation) was created for a purpose. We will do well by acknowledging our Creator and using His gift of free will to accomplish His purposes. According to scripture “Every knee will bow (Submission) and every tongue will confess (Confession)” to Jesus Christ the Lord. We just choose to submit and confess Christ’s Lordship daily that we might live with Him now and forever.

One thought on “What am I really here for? III

  1. Good post! We all should really seek God to understand how we are to use the gifts and talents that He has so blessed us with. Too many people have obtained much in this life as far as worldly success and yet feel totally empty and incomplete because they aren’t doing what God created them for. Yet, as Bro. A very said.. how can the creation know it’s purpose apart from the creator?

    Again, great post!
