“What is my life’s purpose?”


Have you ever wondered, “What is my life’s purpose?” I have given that much thought through the years and what I have discovered is, depending on my daily mood, stress levels or my life’s experiences, I can answer that question in so many ways. If that is true, you know, that things that happen to us daily can influence how we answer this very important question, then perhaps we need something more; something that is more foundational, more permanent so that we can be clear on the answer to the question, “What is my life’s purpose?” Following Jesus helps us with that. Let me say it differently: being a follower of Jesus helps our purpose become clear. How? Because we no longer feel the need to be influenced by everything else happening around us and we can lean into the One who is “purpose” and “life” himself. When Jesus stepped into the Temple and unrolled the scroll of Isaiah, He read these words: “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because God has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.” Luke 4:18-19. That right there is life’s purpose!
