Why Did God Save You?

 

Every moment of your life has been ordained by God to make up your mission and purpose here on earth. Why did God save you? | IntentionalByGrace.com

What are you living for? Or a bigger question. Why did God save you?

Do you know?

How can the reality of God be seen in your everyday life?

God calls, enables, empowers, and invites you to live on mission right where He has you. Right in your own home, marriage, church, community, and job.

Living life on mission isn’t a position or calling for someone else. It’s your calling.

Each of us comes equipped with a special set of gifts. With that also comes a special set of weaknesses. Nevertheless, the strengths and weaknesses are meant to be lived out in the church and in our homes.

Here’s the thing.

Your life is needed. It is wanted. So much so that God sent His only Son to die for you.

God saved you. He wants to use you. Your story, your life, your family.

But why?

Have you ever thought about why God saved you? Why God has you in this family?

The mission God has for your life is intimate.

It is personal. It started in childhood. It’s your life story, your experiences. Every moment of your life has been ordained by God to make up your mission and purpose here on earth.

Many of us have pasts we long to erase; yet it’s in these stories of death and darkness where we have the lens to understand life.

Without death, there is no life.

Life on mission – what you are living for and why you were saved – is about purpose.

Do you have a mission statement for your life? You need to get one.

Do you have a mission statement for your marriage? You need to get one.

For your parenting? Your work?

You need to get one.

We struggle because we aren’t content.

We aren’t content because we don’t have a reason to glorify God. We are so caught up in living moment by moment, we lose sight of the big picture!

If you don’t have a mission statement for why God saved you, then you need to get one.

I wrote an entire (but very short) eBook to help you do this. Live for Him is a grace-filled look at planning that will walk you through the steps of creating a mission statement for your life.

God didn’t save you just for heaven, but also for His kingdom here on earth. It’s your job to figure out why and then start living it!

In order to start living the Gospel at home, you have to know your purpose. You have to know your role within your family unit.

Your Challenge

Today, create a mission statement for your life. Discover your God-given purpose. Write it down. Share it with your family.

  1. Your blog speaks of the very words God laid on my heart about two years ago: “BE INTENTIONAL”. I’m so glad decided to take a deeper look at your blog. You have so many great tools and words of inspiration and encouragement here. Thanks so much.

  2. Wait, what does it mean – why did God save you? like it is already done? not after death and Judgment day? I understand that we all have a mission and purpose but I can’t say that I am saved for sure.
