Your Mission

               What are you here for?

               Yes, why did God birth you in this planet? What did He have in mind when He made you?

               Many of us struggle with these questions. Even worst, many of us settle for what we think is the answer, thus investing our precious time in things that our Maker must certainly did not think of when He thought of you and me.

               So, what is the best way to answer this question? How do we know our life purpose?

               By looking at Adam. No, not the one who messed up. The other. Jesus!

               In her book “The Desire of Ages”, Ellen White wastes no time. In the first page of her first chapter, she tells us what was Jesus’ purpose for existing: “To this sin darkened earth He came to reveal the light of God’s love- to be ‘God with us’.” (pg. 19). Echoing Isaiah and his description of humanity as living in a “land of deep darkness” (Isaiah 9:2), White states that Jesus’ main reason for being born was to show the Father to us.

If this was not fascinating enough, she writes that this revelation was also intended for the angels (pg. 19)! Can you imagine? What took place on this earth 2000 ish years ago was to be experienced not just by humans, but also by angelical beings. But she takes a step further, and in the very same page, she says the following: “Our little world is the lesson book of the universe. God’s wonderful purpose of grace, the mystery of redeeming love, is the theme into which angels desire to look, and it will be their study throughout endless ages.” (pg. 19).

Let’s pause and take a few steps forward.

How does Jesus reveal the “redeeming love” of the Father? By being born in a palace? Through showy displays of Godly power? By restoring Israel to its former political/national former glory? By humiliating all other Rabbis with his wisdom? No. He revealed the Father by being near the broken hearted, loving them completely and giving them foretastes of the Kingdom of Heaven. Ultimately, by dying the death I deserved and gifting me the life He deserved.  

As our big brother, it is fair to say his life’s purpose is also mine.

What He lived for is what I want to life for.

I don’t want to live to play Church, to argue politics, to live for the weekend, to pretend to fit into cultural/religious parameters perfectly…

I want to live a life that is worthy of belonging to the “lesson book” of the universe. The book that will be studied “throughout endless ages”. I want my life to show Jesus’ revelation of the Father was not in vain.

I want to show it meant something.

It gave me hope, joy and love. The same Jesus had while being a breathing, walking revelation of the Father among us.

What about you? What do you want to live for?
