The Right Question

August 19th, 2011 No comments

To find our life’s purpose, it’s important to ask the right person and to ask the right question. AS we shared in the last blog, the right person is Jesus. He created us, redeemed us, and desires to lead us as we walk in relationship with Him.

However, once we come to Christ, we can still be guilty of asking the wrong question. After all, if you ask the wrong question, you’ll get the wrong answer. The same is true in discerning God’s direction.

For example, we often ask, “What is God’s will for my life.” The subtle problem with the question is our over-emphasis on the pronoun “MY,” as in, “My life.”

The proper question is, “What is God’s will?”

Once we know God’s will, our job is to adjust our lives accordingly. The focus needs to remain on God and not me. Otherwise we merely baptize our selfishness in religious language.
