Jesus walked the earth with purpose. He was obedient to His Father God, and He was in love with us. Therefore, He wanted to teach us how to join in the amazing relationship with God that He created us to have together; we are His children and He loves us.
That’s why when satan seduced Adam into betraying God, God had a plan set up to rescue us from damnation. His plan was Jesus. The plan was to have Jesus come to reintroduce us to Father God and to pay the penalty for man's betrayal. So at the right time in history, Jesus arrived, and His mission began. He gathered 12 special men around Him, lived with them, taught them, and prepared them for their assignment in life. John 15:15-16 I do not call you servants any longer, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you [My] friends, because I have revealed to you everything that I have heard from My Father.
16 You have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you and I have appointed and placed and purposefully planted you, so that you would go and bear fruit and keep on bearing, and that your fruit will remain and be lasting, so that whatever you ask of the Father in My name [as My representative] He may give to you.
These words are not just for the apostles, but they are for us too. God has chosen us. He has purposefully planted us where we can complete the work we were created for. Each of us have been given gifts and talents to be used for a special purpose. When we connect with Jesus, we will discover exactly what that purpose is, and it will be a fulfilling work for us. We will produce much fruit for the Kingdom, Jesus’ Kingdom.
Do you remember the Scripture that says God has brought us to Jesus Kingdom?
Colossians 1:13 (NKJV) He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love,
I chose to live in the Light now and I do the work for which I was created. I live happy and excited. You can make the new year a time to really connect with Jesus and find the purpose for which you were created too. Just thank Him for paying your debt, and ask Him to be the Lord of Your life.
1 John 1:7
but if we [really] walk in the Light [that is, live each and every day in conformity with the precepts of God], as He Himself is in the Light, we have [true, unbroken] fellowship with one another [He with us, and we with Him], and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin [by erasing the stain of sin, keeping us cleansed from sin in all its forms and manifestations].
Thank You Lord!
