Week 5 takes us up onto the top of that mountain where Jesus stated the great commission. Here we can see the astonishing view of God’s will and purpose for our lives. Let’s continue to pray that our churches and small groups encounter Jesus afresh during these 40 days, and that as they do so, they may find themselves refilled and restored by Christ.
What we love about Week 5…
We love purpose… and that Jesus not only gave us our true purpose but promised to be with us every step of the way. In Day 31 of the devotional Dave writes:
“Until I became a Christian, I had no real understanding of my life purpose, other than a vague desire to be ‘happy’. Yet as soon as I invited Christ into my life, I had a deep and abiding sense that I was made on purpose and for a purpose. I quickly realised that this purpose involved being loved by, and in return loving, the God who had made me and saved me, and that this love was to overflow in making a difference in other people’s lives.”
What a purpose we have! Let’s pray that we may obediently and prayerfully continue what our Saviour began.
