"...God's fellow worker in the gospel of Christ"

1 Thessalonians 3:2

     After salvation, it is difficult to tell our purpose in life; after all we are a new creation.  We have come over to God's side of existence.  He is using us now for His purposes in the world just as He used His Son for salvation.

     As long as you are seeking your own personal interests and ambitions, you can not be used by God for His interests.  Your understanding of your ways must also be surrendered because they are now and have become the ways of the Lord.

     We must learn that the purpose of our life belongs to God and not to ourselves.  God is using you for His great personal purposes, and all He asks you to do is trust Him.

     Don't say "Lord Your ideas are causing me heartache."  That would make you a stumbling block.  He simply ask you to have faith in Him and His goodness.  Self pity is from the devil, and God will not be allowed to rule and reigh in the hearts of a people who are full of doubt and fears.

     Dear Christian, bust out of your own little world into the world of Christ.  Experience Love, Freedom, Joy, Grace, Forgiveness, Service & Life; all found in the purposes of God!!!
