The Five Purposes of a Purpose-Driven Life

You were made to live a purpose-driven life!  The five purposes of your life are:
  1. WORSHIP:  You were planned for God's pleasure!  After all, there is only one thing to say:  Have reverence for God, and obey His commands, because this is all that we were created for.  Ecclesiastes 12:13 TEV
  2. FELLOWSHIP:  You were formed for a family!  It was a happy day for Him when he gave us our new lives, through the truth of His word, and we became, as it were, the first children in His new family.  James 1:18 LB
  3. DISCIPLESHIP:  You were created to become like Christ!  God knew what He was doing from the very beginning.  He decided from the outset to shape the lives of those who love Him along the same lines as the life of His Son.  The Son stands first in the line of humanity restored.  We see the original and intended shape of our lives in Him.  Romans 8:29 The Message
  4. MINISTRY:  You were shaped for serving God!  We are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.  Ephesians 2:10 NIV
  5. EVANGELISM:  You were made for a mission!  Jesus said, "Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.  And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."  Matthew 28:19-20 NIV
