Week 41: God’s Original Intent, Purpose, and Plan for Our Lives and The Church

When we learn God’s purpose and plan for our life, we get to experience the power to carry it out.

Genesis 1:26-28
Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” So, God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”

The Church is not a building, it’s people. The church is not an organization, it’s an organism. We are to “Be the Church”—spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ. When the church is united for the purpose of God, nothing is impossible for Him.

God’s original intent and purpose for our lives and the Church has not changed! God’s original intent and purpose was for God to bless us, then for you to take the blessing and be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth and subdue it.

How are you fulfilling God’s original intent and purpose for your life? Did you experience a conviction, challenge or a commitment you need to make from this devotion?
