Cause and effect — every effect is connected to a cause. If you don’t have a cause, you won’t have an effect. You become ineffective when you don’t have a cause.
Have a purpose:
The moment we don’t have a cause, purpose, we become ineffective in our lives, Purpose is defined as: the reason for which something is done or created, or for which something exists. In order for our lives to thrive, we need a purpose, a cause. Thank God He gives us all a purpose: to serve Him and to help and serve others. God’s purpose for our lives will last a lifetime.
Make a difference:
We can all make a difference in this world. “There are two types of people who tell you that you cannot make a difference in this world: Those who are afraid to try, and those who are afraid you will succeed” (Ray Goforth).
Do all for God’s glory:
We must be committed to God’s cause — to share the gospel, to be a witness to others. 1 Corinthians 10:31 — So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. That means whatever, everything in our lives. The purpose of the believer is to serve the Lord with our time, talent, and treasure. How we spend our treasure is a reflection of what we love.
We must put in the effort to learn His ways, His will. The difference between mediocrity and excellence is often a matter of effort.
Happy New Year. May 2019 be filled with great purpose to your life.
Just a thought,
