Purpose – What Is My Purpose?

What is your purpose? What are you living for? Jesus demonstrated this aspect in His life. When Jesus came to earth, He clearly stated that He came to earth from heaven not to do His will but the will of the one who sent Him

John 6:38 (NKJV)
For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me.
 With such a bold declaration, it was impossible at the time for Jesus to get into a relationship with anyone and not know His purpose. He led by example. He set a relationship standard for us to emulate. Amen!

Brethren, you might say, I do not know what my purpose is, so how do I even communicate that in my relationship. I will encourage you to begin by doing the will of your heavenly Father, not your will. That is a good place to start. His word is His will for you.

Our goal is to highlight the significance of understanding yourself to an extent that you become an asset in your relationship. And the kingdom approach is this “purpose to do only the will of the Father in all relationships”. You will not go wrong. Remember you are the light of the world, so let your light shine before the people with whom you relate by you living a purpose driven life.

Values - What Are My Values?

Values are simply a person's principles or standards of behavior. In this context, what a person considers according to their judgment to be important in life from a kingdom perspective. I can say without any doubt that

i)                If you do not have values you will always encounter relationship blocks.
ii)              If you do have values and do not communicate them to the other party, you will encounter relationship blocks
iii)            If you do have values and communicate them, yet do not abide by them, you will encounter relationship blocks.

Have you set aside time to understand yourself from a kingdom perspective in order to know exactly what your values are? When we say, “your values” we assume in this context that you are a son or daughter of the kingdom and your value system should be in line with the kingdom. So, it isn’t so much about what you want or like, rather, how the King wants it to be. Amen.

I will share with you a few scriptural guiding principles to consider when shaping your values.

Gal 5:22-23 (NKJV)
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such, there is no law.
These 9 fruit of the Spirit provide us a guide through which we can shape our values.

Philippians 4:8 (NKJV)
Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy - meditate on these things.

Values help us create healthy boundaries for our relationships. Find a way to communicate your boundaries and do so with so much love. Understand that your values will serve as an easy tool you can use to choose your companions. Amen.
