M&Min' For Jesus!

-MMBC Ada Purpose

Ever wonder WHY ON EARTH Do I Exist???

 

"Love the Lord your God with all your heart....soul....mind!  This is the

first and greatest commandment.  And the second is like it:

Love your neighbor as yourself.  All the Law and the Prophets hang on

these two commandments."  Matthew 22: 36-40

 These verses reveal TWO of God's Purposes for your life.....2 ways to fill the emptiness and insignificance of life....

Because God is an AWESOME GOD....HE placed a Dream, a Purpose into your heart before you were born....His first purpose for your life...His dream just for you....THAT YOU LOVE HIM MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE IN LIFE!  How do you begin doing this?  True Worship expresses your love for Christ Jesus!  Worship is a 24-7 lifestyle.  We gather on Sundays and Wednesdays and in Bible Study groups in between to Express our love, and our need for Him.  The product of your worship is something only He can give you....POWER TO LIVE ON!  Magnify the Lord, O My Soul...is the beginning place to making His dream come true for your life.

His Second Purpose or Dream for your life is this....Love your neighbor as yourself...or Love one another as I have loved you...by this the entire world will know you belong to my Family.  How do you express this kind of love to others?  By serving them....by ministering to others as they minister to you.  To use the talents and gifts God has placed within you to encourage and heal other lives.  To allow God to use your life experiences to change the hearts of people around you.  The Love of God is only real when it is expressed outwardly through your live into the lives of others!

"Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name

of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, and

Teaching them to do everything I have commanded you."    

      Matthew 28: 19-10

                                           An Awesome God has Three other Dreams of Purpose for your life.

He dreams that you discover your purpose to live for.  He dreams that you uncover the real focus for living.  "Go and make Disciples.."  God desires you to live your live on mission for Him.  He dreams of you reaching out to other people and sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ with them.  As you begin to actuate this Dream of Purpose in your life you will develop great emotional significance. 

God also dreams that you become a Forever Member of His Household....His Family.We all need other people to live with....and God's Dream is that need be fulfilled by through His Family...His Church....Baptism is and outward expression of your inward desire to obediently follow Christ Jesus.  It also marks your Homecoming Celebration into His Household.

God's last Dream Purpose for your life....is this...that you GROW and MATURE in His Principles for living your life by...God knows this is the only true and sure foundation for living!  This is why Small Family groups that Study and Share together are so valuable.  This is why MMBC offers Family Bible Study (Sunday School) on Sunday mornings...and why we encourage home Bible Studies.  His Word will only Change you when you give Him your time, and when you apply what He reveals.  Your life will be spent becoming more like Christ...it is God's Dream for you...that you progessively become Mature in His Word...that you become Like His Son...Jesus!

 HE WILL PUT A NEW SONG IN YOUR LIFE...when you allow His Dreams of Purpose to      

                                    Capture your Reason for Living.....
