Why am I alive?

The reason we exist can be a confusing topic for anyone, not to mention the endless chasing of “my calling” or the exhaustive search for “my purpose in life”. In an effort to clear some things up we’ve searched the scriptures for some clarity…

  1. Your Identity 

Your identity comes from your Father God and is defined by your union with Christ. God has adopted you to be his son or daughter.

Romans 8:12-17

2. YOUR PURPOSE

You were born to glorify God. This means to worship through your everyday life; in all that you do bearing witness that Jesus is alive.

Romans 11:36-12:2

3. YOUR COMMISSION

To carry on the mission of Jesus to make disciples. You have a mandate to tell people about Jesus and teach them how to follow him.

Mark 16:15-18

4. YOUR CALLING

The unique way that God assigns you to glorify him and make disciples. Your gifts, desires and natural circumstances contribute and this assignment can change.

1 Corinthians 12:4-11, Genesis 2:7,15,19

5. YOUR DESTINY

To hear Jesus say “Well done” when you stand before him to give an account for how you lived in response to his salvation.

2 Corinthians 5:9-15

As you might have noticed everything about being human starts and ends with Jesus.
