Often times we strive to walk in our purpose without abiding in Jesus.
We’ve missed out on our purpose if we have chosen to live each day without Jesus. Our true purpose is to be the light of this world by glorifying Jesus with our deeds (Matt 5:14-16). If we choose to pursue anything outside of Jesus or without Jesus, we have missed the mark.
We must be obedient to Jesus and fight through the noise of the world to walk into the fullness of our destiny. Isaiah 1:19 says, “If you are willing and obedient, you will eat the good things of the land.” Our willingness to obey Jesus will lead us to walk into our God-given purpose and reap His inheritance of joy and blessings over our lives.
Jesus is our model for carrying out our purpose. Just as we get dressed every day, we must also put on Jesus every day. Ephesians 4:22-24 says, “You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.”
