You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to serve our God, and they will reign on the earth. Revelation 5:10
All throughout the world the majority of people are wanting to know what their purpose is. They want to know what life on the earth is all about.
Suicides occur daily because many do not feel that they have any value or purpose. Thousands of books are written about finding purpose and reasoning in everything. Yet, many still cannot find purpose that is fulfilling. Even after doing many things, many are still falling short in purpose and still searching.
John describes some creatures and elders in heaven around the throne of God as falling down and worshipping God. They sing a song saying that God made them to be a kingdom and priests to serve God and reign upon the earth.
When student graduates high school he is bombarded with thousands of possible paths to take in life. There are thousands of different jobs or services that he could aim for. Knowing which path to take is often very overwhelming and scary for many. For the believer God is willing to lay out a plan of a path to take.
The very base line of the path for each and every person is to believe upon Jesus as Lord and Savior and to serve God. People are to be a part of God’s kingdom and to build His kingdom greater.
How a person is to serve God and build up His kingdom will be different each person. Some will work in the workplace, being His witness and hands, while others will work in full-time ministry positions. Either way is for the purpose of building His kingdom and serving Him. This is only done by relying upon God to lead the way.
As you are going through your life, you may be wondering what your purpose is. Begin with listening to God and seeking His will and ways. Read and study His word to know what God desires of you. Then be willing to do what He leads you to do.
God has a purpose for you in this life. Ultimately it is to build His kingdom in some way or another as you worship Him. The more you serve God, the more fulfilled and satisfied with life you will be. You will understand your ultimate purpose on this planet.
Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Lord and Savior; that you will know God’s purpose for your life; that you will trust God with your whole life; that you will work to build God’s kingdom; and that you will serve God with your life.
