MAKE IT COUNT

“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”  Matthew 28: 19-20 NKJV.

Imagine buying an expensive brand-new car, and instead of driving it, you park it permanently in your garage and opt for an alternate means of transportation. That would seem like a waste of money because the car’s purpose is to convey you to different destinations, not to serve as a decorative piece in your garage. Leaving the vehicle dormant would mean it is not fulfilling its purpose.

Everything created has a purpose, and for man, our ultimate purpose is to know Christ and make Him known to our world -This is why God created us. 

As believers, we have received the life of Christ, which means we ought to live our lives intentionally to please Him (Galatians 2:20). This is how 2 Corinthians 5:15 (NKJV) puts it:

“and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.”

Your life on earth should count for something eternal. There is more to your life than building a family, making money, and having a successful career, as important as these endeavours are. Our anchor scripture instructs us to go into the world and make disciples; that is our agenda here on Earth. At the end of your life on earth, like Apostle Paul in 2 Timothy 4:7-8, you should confidently say that you lived a purposeful life. 

You live a purposeful life by consistently taking practical steps to win souls for Christ and growing in your knowledge of Him. To achieve the above, it starts by feeding yourself daily with God’s word, developing intimacy with God in the place of prayer, learning more of Him in fellowship with the saints and going into the world to evangelise. By doing this, you’re doing the will of God. 

Apostle Paul said, “For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain” (Philippians 1:21, NKJV ), and that is the perspective you ought to have in life. God is counting on you to live for Him. Therefore, you cannot live an ordinary life. There should be a clear distinction between your life and that of an unbeliever. Live a life with purpose in mind.

Remember, in eternity, if you succeed at everything else in life but fail at Knowing Christ and making Him known, nothing else you have succeeded at will matter. Take it as an utmost priority to make your life count for the spread of the Gospel.  

SAY THIS: I live a life of purpose. God’s agenda is my agenda. I have the life of Christ, and I will live it purposefully.
