Simple illustration: We are the wire,God is the transformer. No matter how many, long, strong a wire is, it can never fulfill it’s purpose of passing current/voltage/ or electricity unless it is connected to a source of light. Remove the wire from the source of light, it becomes useless.But that doesn’t change the fact that the transformer still remains a transformer.
That’s how it’s with God, without us, He is still God. But without God, we are nothing and can do nothing. So all we have to do is to be connected to the power supply that doesn’t fail(God). JESUS CHRIST didn’t just die so we can praise him, pray to Him, like him or even honor him. He died to reconnect us back to His father. Without being connected to God, He cannot reveal anything to us.
Sin separates us from God. Because the bible says “Anyone who continues sinning is of the devil”(1 John3:8).
God paid the greatest price to redeem us from sin. Redemption was what Jesus came to do. He finished the project and fulfilled all the promises God made to the prophets in the Old Testament.
Purpose means you understanding the reason why you were created.
You didn’t create yourself neither did your parents create you. There’s a reason for you being in the family you are,there’s a reason for you being in the school you are,the church you are,etc. But then,no man can find out his purpose of existing or being created if God doesn’t reveal it to him. The reason why a lot of people fail in some areas where some people exceed is because you do not choose your purpose,you discover it. But a lot of people are following the trend and failed to know what God wants them to do.
The slowest and fastest way a man can fail in life is to not discover God’s purpose for his life. Many are running the race but only few know why they are running the race. The Christian race isn’t a competition because in the Christian race,we can all win. You can’t discover the purpose of God for you without involving God. And before you can involve Him, you must know Him, have a relationship with Him,dwell with Him and surrender all to Him. Because before God will trust you, He is going to test you.
