We glorify God by doing what He tells us to do not simply what we want to do.
Glorifying God is directly connected to fulfilling our destiny.Tony Evans, Called for a Purpose
Jesus wonderfully set the ultimate example for us in fulfilling our destiny and living out our purpose; our divine calling. John 17:4 exemplifies this supremely.
A believer’s primary purpose; the ‘Trifecta of Trinities’
By this and other verses we can know a key reason, a primary essential reason God created us: to reflect His glory by accomplishing work He wants done in a manner that bring Him joy.
A believer’s primary purpose is to bring gloryKirk Booher
unto the Father, for the Son, by the Spirit
with our time, talent and treasure.
The ‘Trifecta of Trinities’ Life Purpose
GLORY to GOD:
1) A. Unto B. For C. By
2) A. Father B. Son C. Spirit
3) A. Time B. Talent C. Treasure
That’s the ‘trifecta of trinities’ life purpose… once again with some more detail:
1st +2nd trinity)
A. Unto the glory of A. God, the Father
B. For the cause of B. Jesus Christ, the Son
C. By the enabling of C. His Spirit, the Holy Ghost
With the use of what He has provisioned:
A. Time – the time God has given us between the dash of our birth and physical death.
B. Talent – the use our natural, God given talents and improving our skills with wisdom, learning and experience as well as the fruit, the gifts of the Spirit.
C. Treasure – the intentional investing of our resources and money by being a good steward for His Kingdom.
Do you dig it? Once you set your mind on that BIG trinity of trinities purpose as your overall life mission, the smaller things become clearer and we filter our decisions based on that. From there, we should seek to drill down as God uniquely calls and enables each of us.
The Trinity of God’s Will
When God calls, we often can discern His voice by the 3 P’s, the trinity of God’s will:
The Dual-Trinity of Man
As we engage in Loving our Living on Purpose, we should keep in mind we ourselves are a dual-trinity:
Our own spirit and soul are interconnected as is our brain and heart and thus so should our words and deeds be with integrity of our personhood.
Remain focused on God
Keep the main thing the main thing
One thing we can definitely apply and learn from Christ was His focus on mission and pleasing God, our Father, first and foremost.
Christ dutifully carried His cross to the point of utter exhaustion. He then willing went up on it bearing the unfathomable.
Jesus instructed us that we must carry our own cross. We are to be like Him, in the best way possible; by good works and by steadfast faith.
We find the abundant life not through ease and comfort by overcoming Unto – For – By God, by giving it up.
We are fools to try to keep what we shall lose. We are wise to sacrifice what we can not keep, so that we gain all the more forever more which begins and ends in Christ. That is exactly what the Father did for His Son. Christ, our great High Preist and brother, shall advocate for us. Amen? Amen!
Either way, we all will glorify God.
Lord, You are the way, the truth and the light. Guide my and help me Lord Jesus to be a mini You.
Ultimately Lord, I pray my will shall be Your will. Me we be in accord, in unity. Great is Your faithfulness. Great is Your faithfulness, Lord unto me.
I pray what Moses prayed in Exodus 33:8, “I pray You, show me Your glory.”
Jesus want this for YOU. That’s certainly not my original thought. I know it for the BIBLE tells me so. And He tells and loves you too. What are you waiting for?
