A man and his Mission:
Your Life Purpose!
Genesis 2 – From God’s account of
creation, He says that man has…
- A work to do
- A will to obey
- A woman to love
A biblical man-
- rejects passivity
- accepts responsibility
- leads courageously
- expects the greater reward –
God’s reward
As we study a man and his mission, we
will address the following items:
- Your life purpose
- Your life plan
- Your life perseverance
God has a uniquely designed
journey for a man from his first
breath to life.
1. Your primary mission:
The Westminster Shorter Catechism
“What is the chief end of man? A man's
chief end is to glorify God, and to enjoy
him forever.”
Revelation 4:11 (NASB95) “Worthy
are You, our Lord and our God, to
receive glory and honor and power;
for You created all things, and
because of Your will they existed,
and were created.”
Every man must have a
transcendent cause. If your only
cause is yourself, you will never
experience the joy, abundance, and
fullness of the life God intended.
2. Your personal response:
the example of Joshua
- Fiercely embrace
- Courageously pursue
Small group:
There are two examples, Joshua
whose legacy carried on after his
life (Joshua 24:31) and Judges 2:10,
where the generation that arose
did not know the Lord.
Discuss with your group what
actions you think contribute to
leaving a legacy of faith and also
what actions inhibit faith being
passed to future generations.
Take away:
Building from your small group
discussion, read Joshua 24 and
Judges 2. Answer the following
question before next week: What
plans do I have for purposefully
leaving a legacy of faith?
