Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered outside the gate. Therefore, let us go forth to him outside the camp, bearing his reproach. For we have no continuing city here, but we seek one to come.
Select a thought to read by choosing a collection, the month, and then the day:
The only value your life has, as a child of God, is the good that you do for others while you live on earth. There is no other reason for you to be alive. Think about it. If all God wanted was to save you, He would have taken you home to be with Him the moment you were born again so that you would never have the opportunity to wander away from His righteousness and lose your soul. You are here, then, not to be saved but to save others. The reason God is letting you remain here on this earth is so that you might by your godly conduct influence others to come rest beneath the sheltering wings of the Son of God.
This is your purpose, to which God has called you in Christ. And if you love your God, and if you are fulfilling the purpose for which you are called, then everything that happens to you will only be a part of God’s wonderful plan for your life. I say that because I “know that all things work together for good to them who love God and are the called according to His purpose.”
You have a purpose; fulfill it. God will take care of everything else.
