    Yesterday we talked about why it’s important for you to know the purpose of your life so that God can use you while you’re here on Earth. So, if this life is preparation for eternity, how do you do it? How do you use your life here to prepare for eternity?

  • Use Your Life to Get Ready for Eternity

    If you’re going to get ready to be used by God, the first thing you need to do is understand the purpose of your life. The Bible makes it very clear in Ephesians 1:4-5: “Long ago, even before he made the world, God chose us to be his very own through what Christ would do for us .... His unchanging plan has always been to adopt us into his own family by sending Jesus Christ to die for us” (TLB).

    One of the signs that envy is in your heart and you need to eliminate it is that you constantly use this phrase: “It’s not fair.” “It’s not fair that he gets to do that and I don’t!” “It’s not fair that it’s easy for her and not for me.” “It’s not fair that their kids got the award and mine didn’t.” “It’s not fair that they can afford that vacation and I can’t.”

    Instead of being regretful, we need to be grateful. Instead of complaining, we need to remember that everything is a gift from God.

    09-23-16-Life-Meant-To-Live-Four-Ways-Envy-Damages-Your-Life

    The number one thing that holds you back from God’s purpose and mission for your life is a very subtle sin. It’s not lust or pride or anger. It’s not worry or fear or discouragement. In fact, you would probably never even think of it because it is so insidious we don’t realize its damaging effect on our lives.

  • Don’t Be Distracted from the Work God Has for You

    I have met thousands of people who’ve told me they want to be used by God, but they will never be used by God. Why? They’re too busy. They’ve got their own agenda going. They’ve got their plans and dreams and ambitions, and they don’t have any time! In the midst of their busyness, they try to carve out a little sliver from the pie of life and say, “I’ll give this to God.” But it doesn’t work that way.
