The early disciples lived life with an awareness of being caught up in God’s purpose for the world. What does it mean for you to live today in light of God’s purpose? As if every person you encounter is valuable to God. As if your interaction with people holds the potential to demonstrate the reality of a living, personal God who cares about them. As if God were orchestrating events to bring about His purposes in this time and place. What difference would this make?
He has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace.—2 Timothy 1:9
Prayer: Lord, lift my eyes from the daily tasks that fill my day so that I re-focus on Your purpose and grace. Then let me look at the people with whom I interact through Your eyes and help me to accomplish Your purposes in what I do and say. May my life reveal Your life to them as I serve them in Jesus name, I pray, Amen.
