And the Word Was Made Flesh – Part 5: His Purpose

Article written by Brother Bledsoe

For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.

Luke 19:10

I do not seek My own will but the will of the Father who sent Me.
John 5:30.

In these two verses you have the reason for Jesus’ coming to earth and all that motivated Him to do what He did while here. Everything that He came for was fully accomplished through His death on the Cross. All that He did while here verified Who He was.

God also has a divine purpose for our lives

We are not here to just float through life and affect no one. But to accomplish our purpose we must be in constant fellowship with our Lord Jesus Christ.

Andrew Murray wrote: THE FIRST and chief need of our Christian life is fellowship with God. The Divine life within us comes from God, and is entirely dependent upon Him. As I need every moment afresh of the air to breathe, as the sun every moment afresh sends down its light, so it is only in direct living communication with God that my soul can be strong.

The manna of one day was corrupt when the next day came. I must every day have fresh grace from heaven, and I obtain it only in direct waiting upon God Himself. Begin each day by tarrying before God, and letting Him touch you.

Take time to meet God today and each and every day

You will be all the more blessed. When you begin to think that your purpose in life is over you would be wrong. Listen for God’s voice today and then follow His instructions. Jesus did and so must we.

“New Birth” Birthday

I am coming up on my 64th “New Birth,” birthday when I rededicated my life to Christ and He forgave the sins of my youth.  For most of those years I did not think about the importance of the date that Jesus cleansed me from my sins and restored me. I think I should give myself a party for it truly was and is a time of joy.
