Purpose


“God chooses according to His divine purposes. Our task is to pray, believe, and to trust...Our perspective can also become distorted by pride if we fail to recognize that God is working His purposes through us.” (Life Application Study Bible, 2 Corinthians 12:7-8, Isaiah 10:12)

“Since it is not possible for us to see the whole picture from God’s perspective, we must exercise faith and believe that the God of all the earth will do right and that all things do work together for good to those who love God, who are called according to His purpose.” (Foundation Study Bible, Genesis 45:5)

“We are foolish to try to fit God into our mold—to make His plans and purposes conform to ours. Instead, we must strive to fit into His plans…A sincere purpose to please God will result in an alignment of your desires with God’s desires.” (Life Application Study Bible, Isaiah 55:8-9, Psalm 97:10)

“For you will certainly carry out God's purpose, however you act, but it makes a difference to you whether you serve like Judas or like John…You will never find your deepest purpose in life until you find your place in building God’s kingdom.” (C. S. Lewis, Richard Stearns)

“We are sacramental by nature, always seeking meaning and purpose in the things around us. This is one of the things which defines us as human beings…The ultimate purpose of man's existence is to attain the glory of God....The glory of God is both eternal righteousness and eternal life.” (Archpriest Lawrence Cross, Orthodox Study Bible, Romans 3:23)
