We are seeking God, our Father.

A Passion for Ministry-Focused Church.

Desiring God!

A God-centered person has found that the pursuit of God is life’s highest calling (see Jeremiah 29:13). Earthly enticements lose much of their attraction for someone who has been in the presence of the Lord God Almighty (Isaiah 6:1–5; Hosea 12:5). Attitudes, desires, and relationships are altered by that encounter, and the Word of God becomes a lifeline. A God-centered life is marked by the fruit of the Holy Spirit (Galatians 5:22). These are not personality traits that we can “work on”; they are called “fruit of the Spirit” because, as a fruit tree naturally produces fruit, a life that is fully surrendered to God naturally produces godly qualities.

 

Why do you exist?

God has an incredibly valuable task for you. You, in the situations of your life that He created uniquely for you, should carry out His will on earth, as it is done on heaven. Your job is to prove how good and acceptable and perfect His will is, so that in the ages to come, it is incontestable. (Romans 12:1-2)

Perhaps one of the most beautiful and life-affirming passages in the Bible are the words of David in Psalm 139. “My frame was not hidden from You, when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all are written, the days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them.” Psalm 139:15-16.

God has carefully and individually made each of us, “fearfully and wonderfully.” (Psalm 139:14) So if He thought of us and created each of us so intentionally, we need to understand His purpose for the lives He has given us.

 

Root of All Roots

In other words, live to make Christ look magnificent.



John 1 King James Version (KJV)

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

The same was in the beginning with God.

All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.

The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.

He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.

That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.

10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.

 

Happy Purpose

“Bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the end of the earth, everyone who is called by my name, whom I created for my glory, whom I formed and made.” (Isaiah 43:6–7)
