The Divine Purpose
(En Español)
"And we know that God causes all things to work together for the good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose" (Rom. 8:28).
Even before I came to Christ, the phrase, "it all works for good," was a familiar coping mechanism for life's ills. Yet this spiritual truth really is not a promise for everyone. What I mean is that there are many things in life -- horrible things -- that are not working for good: Millions die who do not go to Heaven. Others languish in prolonged agony, suffering from unspeakable diseases, physical trauma or war. What of abortion, human trafficking and drug addiction? Do these work for good?
You see, Romans 8:28 is not a promise directed to everyone; it is, in fact, addressed to a unique category of Christians: "those who love God" and who embrace a lifestyle "according to His purpose." Therefore, let us search our hearts and honestly ask ourselves, Am I loving God, and am I reaching for His purpose in my life?
Equally important, we must know what is that specific, singular purpose that transcends all other earthly goals? You see, there is one purpose that God so loves so much that He will rework every challenge we face until even our setbacks are transformed into setups that conform our lives to Christ's.
The next verse in Romans explains:
"For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn of many brethren" (v. 29).
Beloved, do not skim past this verse: it contains the very core reason for our existence. Our Father's purpose is that "many brethren" come forth in the "image of His Son." You see, possessing the likeness of Christ is the reason of our existence!
This is the purpose of God for us: Christlikeness. Yet many Christians are sleepwalking. In response to this passive condition, and under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, we established our online school, In Christ's Image Training.
I believe this training is like an archer's bow; it will launch you into a new level in attaining your purpose in life. However, the arrow that determines how far and how high you will fly will be your vision and steadfastness in the Holy Spirit.
Finally, the world needs to see and experience Christians that manifest Christ's nature and demonstrate His power. A new anointing is on the horizon for miracles of healing and deliverance. Imagine Christ manifest through you in your church and community! I believe in this very hour of darkness the Holy Spirit is bringing many sons to glory (see Isaiah 60:1-3).
Let In Christ's Image Training be a means of grace to help you reach your divinely appointed destiny: conformed to the image of God's Son.
