A Purpose Driven Life

In looking at the ministry of Christ, Jesus’ objective was always clear. As Robert Coleman writes in his book Master Plan of Evangelism, “[Jesus’] life was ordered by his objective. Everything he did and said was part of the whole pattern. It had significance because it contributed to the ultimate purpose of his life in redeeming the world for God [Luke 19:10; Matthew 20:28]. This was the motivating vision governing Jesus’ behavior. Not for one moment did Jesus lose sight of His goal. Jesus seized every opportunity for decisive action, but never lost sight of his ultimate objective to redeem a person to himself (Luke 2:49). Jesus knew and understood what his overall objective was, and ultimately conceived a plan that would not fail, by calling twelve men to himself who would in turn lead the multitudes and usher in a Kingdom. Yes Jesus could have been all things to all men, but instead he choose to invest himself in a few who in turn could win the masses and ultimately reach the world.

Jesus gives us the perfect example of living a purpose driven life! Not only did he knew what his mission was, but he fulfilled it for the glory of God. Two thousand years later, God’s mission is still the same. And believe it or not, he wants to use you and me to fulfill it.
