Good morning.

When we were children it was easy for us to tell what we wanted to be when we grew up - a teacher, a doctor, a nurse or a policeman. As we grew through our teenage years what we wanted to become in life became more blurred. What would the future hold? Would life have meaning?

Followers of Christ do not need to create meaning and purpose for their lives. We have already received our calling: to live lives worthy of Jesus Christ.

People who do not know the Lord have their sense of worth defined by personal success, wealth and possessions. Their sense of self is like a car tyre that has a slow puncture and must constantly be re-inflated by achieving or doing something new.

As followers of Christ we do not have to create our own sense of value or purpose; it has been purchased by Jesus and given to us by grace. We are living for something much greater: the glory of God.

"Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus." (Philippians 3:12‭-‬14)

Have a wonderful Wednesday.

Good morning. David writing in Psalm 43:5 asks, "Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me?" He then gives us good advice, "Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior
