1 Peter 2:9
We all look for purpose in life. Some of us find purpose in our jobs. Other’s find purpose in their family. Still others find their purpose in helping others. Purpose helps us to know what matters in our lives. Purpose brings meaning to our lives. No matter where we find it . . . having a purpose in life is important
Here in this short passage, Peter instructs his readers and fellow believers about their purpose. He ties their purpose to their identity. If you are part of God’s chosen people your purpose is different than if you are not a Christ-follower. As a part of God’s community your purpose is to “declare the praises of him who call you . . .” Sure, we have to take care of our families, work, etc. But, our main purpose as people of God is to praise Him for His salvation!
So, this month, no matter what you think your purpose is, don’t forget that as a child of God your main purpose is to worship God. Keeping that purpose in perspective will change everything in your life!
