ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE

He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? (a)To act justly, (b)and to love mercy(c) and to walk humbly with your God. Then the Lord Jesus left us directives in the New Testament as to the purpose of a Christian’s life. ” He answered,

(A) “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and (

B) with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” (Luke 10:27 NIV).

However, he extended that second statement with this one.

  1. “A new command(A) I give you: Love one another.
  2. (B) As I have loved you, so you must love one another.
  3. (C) By this everyone will know that you are my disciples if you love one another.” (John 13:34-35).
  4. Then he completed our purpose by giving us this commandment,

The Great Commission
16 Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go.

  1. (A) 17 When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. 18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.
  2. (B) 19 Therefore go [He is sending us to do something] and make disciples of all nations,
  3. (C) baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
  4. (D) 20 and teaching
  5. (E) them to obey everything I have commanded you.
  6. (F) And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age. (Matthew 28:16-20 NIV).

What an awesome God!! He did not leave my future in the hands of a human being. He did not leave me floundering and wondering.

  1. “WHAT IS MY PURPOSE IN LIFE?”, or even
  2. “WHAT IS HIS WILL FOR MY LIFE?”. He was crystal clear!

I am so thankful for these words of admonishment and direction. My desire is to follow these commands. Yes, I know I am not perfect, but so does God!! What about you? Do you feel a sense of relief knowing what it is that God wants you to do with your life?  Just ask Him to place people in front of you whom you can teach how to grow in His knowledge and Grace and also teach them how to develop others!  Our lives are in His hands!
