03 Aug Your Purpose is in your Pattern – 8/3/20
2 Timothy 1:13 – “Follow the pattern of the sound words that you have heard from me, in the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus.“
Everyone is following a pattern of life. One given from culture, celebrities, influencers, employers, family members, youtubers, friends, etc. This is the way you should live; they say. However, those thoughts change so much that trying to keep up with them does not eventually create a coherent picture. The question we all need to ask is what picture will the pattern of my life eventually make?
To all of us, the Lord wants to tell us to just follow the pattern. Follow the pattern of life as revealed in God’s Word. Young or old, new to your career, or well established, new to parenting or grandparents, the answer is the same for all of us who follow Jesus. Just follow the pattern. You don’t have to know what is next, get that job, or what’s in store to live out your purpose. You will find your purpose when you follow God’s pattern.
