Hebrews 12:1-12; 1 Peter 4:12-13
Living on Purpose means:
Our purpose for remaining & our approach to this life – TO KNOW GOD & TO MAKE HIM KNOWN
How to know God?
1. Learn to believe Him (Heb. 11:1-2).
2. Share in His suffering (Heb. 12:1-2; 1 Pet. 4:12-13); Phil. 3:7-10).
# magnifies our experience of joy; and
# connects us to our Lord.
So, know God better, and experience joy better (1 Cor. 1:3-5).
Know God equips us to make Him known.
# Prayer: "How would You have me pray, Lord?"
# "Good that God considers us worthy to suffer for Him."
God has entrusted us this ministry to be "messengers of reconciliation" (2 Cor. 5:18-20).
It means to be "Life-givers" (1 Cor. 3:6-9).
# Radical belief and radical life flow out of radical relationship with God.
# Living out in the open – as salt and light (Matt. 5:13): Darkness means the absence of light; to drive out darkness means you just shine your light.
# Extend radical love (which you cannot make up) (1 Cor. 13; 1 John 4:19)
# "It makes me cross-cultural in my home culture."
# Ministry at work – Be a living letter of Christ; Be an open letter, NOT a sealed one (2 Cor. 3:2-3; Rom. 11:36; 12:1).
# Here as international community members, come experience together to be equipped in order to shine out there.
