Jesus said, “I have food to eat that you know nothing about…My food is to do the will of Him who sent me and to accomplish His work.” (John 4:32, 34)
We cannot live without this food to nourish our souls. It sustains like nothing else will. It continues to strengthen when normal proteins and carbohydrates give out.
This food of which Jesus speaks is the enigmatic idea we call purpose. Without purpose, we have no life. There is no reason to get up in the morning – no reason to bring the fight.
But know this, your purpose is more than a job. It gives more than a new-found business can return. Purpose drives every action and working hour with an intention to see other’s lives made better.
So, let me give you this powerful definition of true purpose: it is your love released through your uniquely creative design. With your personality and talents, God has packaged His love for the world to see His goodness. You are a light and sound for the world to know that it can be better than it currently is. Through that which we love and enjoy most, God has given us the thrill of bringing His light to this world.
So, as God has freely given to you, freely give. Give without any thought of return, and your purpose will become self-evident.
