Acts 13: 36 “Now when David had served God’s purpose in his own generation, he fell asleep; he was buried with his ancestors and his body decayed.
Acts 13:47 For this is what the Lord has commanded us: “ ‘I have made you a light for the Gentiles, that you may bring salvation to the ends of the earth.’ ”
Make a careful exploration of who you are and the work you have been given, and then sink yourself into that …. Galatians 6:4b (Msg).
Today is a day of purpose…well, as every day is. David’s epitaph is one we all should aspire to, that he served God in his generation and then he died. That is what I want said of me.
That God has not only commanded me, but also has commissioned me to be a light for the Gentiles, so that salvation might be brought to the ends of the earth. This is my heartbeat. To see the world come to know the light of the world. To proclaim the name of Jesus.
This is the calling of my life. I know it is true. My part is to now sink myself into that purpose with all that I am. This is my purpose! Do you know what your purpose is?
