ARE YOU ON THE RIGHT ROAD?

are you on the right road

 

Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began 2 Timothy 1:9.

 

When a person is saved they are a new creation in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17) but also they become a member of the Body of Christ (Romans 12:4, 5). God’s purpose for our life centers around our placement in the Body of Christ, who we are, where we fit, and what we’re supposed to do in His service.

 

Our purpose helps us find where we are set in His body 1 Corinthians 12:18, our part in His Kingdom and glory (where we will shine) 1 Thessalonians 2:12. In the same way we answered the call to salvation, we must answer the call to service or His purpose for us in the Body of Christ. It is an irrevocable (not subject to recall), high, holy calling (a summons and invitation) from Heaven Romans 11:29; Philippians 3:14; 2 Timothy 1:9.

 

This calling to purpose is what God will make all things work together for the good of in our life Romans 8:28; Ephesians 1:11. Once we get on the pathway of our calling or you could say, “the road called purpose,” we will meet all the right people, be presented with all the right opportunities, and be brought to all the right places.

 

Most of the sad stories I’ve witnessed in believers lives has been when they’ve left the main road of purpose and got on a side road. It is there they were then exposed to all the wrong people, all the wrong opportunities, and were in the wrong places at the wrong time. The pursuit of purpose could very well be what preserves your life and gives you longevity in His service.
