Living Purposefully


In recent years, it’s been increasingly popular in both secular and sacred settings to talk about the great desire we all have to live a purposeful life. As I see it, Jesus’ purposeful life was made that way, because He freely chose to allow His Father in Heaven to define His life for Him. In the next few blog sessions (taken from A Journey into 3-C Christian Discipleship), we’ll unpack this idea of living a Christ-centered life and explore how we, like the Master, can become recipients of God’s amazing gift to live life on purpose and to the full. Join us!


Below, you will find a complete list of all the posts (9 blogs) of this series. We suggest that you bookmark this home page for ease of use. Enjoy!

Each one of our blog studies can serve you well as a support piece in your devotional life with Jesus. As you’ll see when you open up one of our pages, each blog begins with a short scripture or reading, some thoughts to consider, and then concludes with a prayer and a question or two for you to ponder. Go slow. Walk at your own pace, inviting the Holy Spirit to join with you as you read and reflect.
