Let’s Talk About Your Purpose

There’s a lot of talk about purpose. Everyone wants to have it, but few know where to find it.

It’s exhausting trying to find and maintain your purpose by the world’s standards. We can often mistake that our purpose is tied up in our jobs, kids, relationships, and good works. All of those things are important, but what if I told you that you have purpose and worth simply by being…you.

God gives us a radical idea that challenges the world’s definition of “purpose.” God says that in Christ we have been brought to fullness (Colossians 2:10). We don’t need another person, a promotion, or a special award to fulfill us or to prove our worth. The Creator of the universe knows our names and rejoices over us. What more purpose could we want?

“and in Christ you have been brought to fullness. He is the head over every power and authority.” – Colossians 2:10
