I. Discovery of Purpose: Proverbs 19:21 

Proverbs 19:21 reminds us, "Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand." Our human plans may be numerous, but true purpose is discovered in aligning our aspirations with the divine will. Life's purpose is not a destination we reach but a continuous journey of discerning and surrendering to the plans God has ordained for us.

II. Living According to Divine Designs: Jeremiah 29:11 

Jeremiah 29:11 assures us of God's intimate involvement in our lives: "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope." Living according to divine designs requires trust and obedience. As we align ourselves with God's purposes, we step into a future infused with hope, guided by the loving intentions of our Creator.

III. Serving Others with Purpose: Galatians 5:13 

Galatians 5:13 imparts a transformative perspective on purpose: "For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another." True purpose is discovered in selfless service. When we embrace the freedom found in Christ, our purpose shifts from self-gratification to lovingly serving others—a purpose that echoes the heart of our Savior.

IV. Life with Eternal Meaning: Colossians 3:17 

Colossians 3:17 establishes the principle that every aspect of life should reflect our purpose in Christ: "And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him." Living a purpose-driven life extends beyond specific actions—it encompasses our entire being. When our words and deeds align with Christ, life gains eternal meaning and significance.

V. The Purpose of Loving and Connecting: Matthew 22:37-39 

In Matthew 22:37-39, Jesus reveals the essence of life's purpose: "And he said to him, 'You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.'" Life's ultimate purpose is found in the profound connections forged through love—for God and for one another.

VI. Finding Purpose in Worship: John 4:23 

John 4:23 emphasizes the transformative power of worship in shaping our purpose: "But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him." Worship is not a ritual but a lifestyle. When we authentically worship God in spirit and truth, we find purpose that transcends temporal pursuits.

VII. Purpose of fulfill God his plans for us.

The LORD alters our lives to focus on his purposes.

Sometimes change comes though our desire to be like the world (1 Sam 8:5), trying to be like the world in many ways—dress, authority, morality, technology, etc.

The better way to Have a Purpose is for us to let God lead us.

If you gave complete control of your life to God, what would change?

  • Would you still have the same habits?
  • Would you still have the same job?
  • Where would you live?
  • What would you be doing?

VIII. Purpose To Be Happy at Jesus.

There are many different answers to these questions. However, one thing is certain – the meaning of life is to be happy. If you are not happy with yourself, then you cannot be happy with other people. Happiness comes from within.Beholding the Christ to become like Him (2Cor. 3:18).

Conforming your entire being--body, mind, and soul into the likeness of Christ (see Rom. 8:29).

The answer is to be found in the teaching of Christ. If the teaching of Christ IS followed it will solve many of the problems of life

We all need  guidance -JER. 10:23. We need help-someone to give us guidance. Point us in the right direction. Christ and his word is the answer. His Word gives guidance. Gives purpose -PSA. 119:105,104;73:24

IX. Purpose to love others. 

The way believers can bless others is to help them hunger for God (Mt 5:13).. To help others. To make them happy. To give them joy. To bring happiness into their lives. 

Christians are lights to show people to God (Mt 5:14a). And when you do this, you will find true happiness.

Be “light” through good deeds to help others praise God ( Mt 5:16).

If you are not sure what makes you happy, then you should start by asking yourself these questions: how to find Jesus?

X. Purpose Live For Today And Not Tomorrow.

 It is only after we understand our purpose in Jesus  that we can begin to live a meaningful life.

Phillipians 4:7

“and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will GUARD your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus”

  • rejoice in your salvation (4:4)
  • realize God is near (4:5)
  • worry over nothing, pray for everything (4:6, 7)
  • meditate on good and true thoughts (4:8)
  • focus on godly examples/behavior (4:9)
  • divert attention from self (4:10)
  • learn contentment (4:11, 12)

We focus on the end result then we think about about how we will spend eternity in heaven.

"...He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing” (Jn. 14:15)


As we reflect on the scriptures, it becomes evident that living a purpose-driven life is not a quest for personal success or fulfillment; it is a surrender to the divine designs intricately woven into our existence by our loving Creator. Purpose is discovered in alignment with God's will, selfless service, eternal perspectives, love-filled connections, and authentic worship. May we, as followers of Christ, embrace these divine designs, navigating life's journey with a profound sense of purpose that radiates God's glory in every aspect of our lives.
