“But rise, and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those things in the which I will appear unto thee;” Acts 26:16Text — Acts 26:14-19
Living for God means choosing to dedicate your life to Him, seeking His will for you and then following it. You can only find the real purpose of your life when you accept Jesus as your personal Saviour and Lord. Paul discovered the purpose of God for his life when he had met with Jesus on the way to Damascus; he was on a dangerous mission to arrest friends of Jesus. God, Who is merciful and kind arrested him and he became a changed man. He came under the authority of a new Master. He also had a new purpose for his life.
As a believer, you should seek and determine to find God’s purpose for your life. In fact, the plan that God has for your life is greater than you can ever imagine! His thoughts and ways are higher and bigger. Read your Bible regularly to discover God’s purpose for you. The more you read and meditate on the word of God, the more you will understand what God wants for your life. Obey God in all things, surrender to Him and live for Him always. Make His will for you the ONLY thing that matters.
