Colossians 1:16 (Msg.) “For everything, absolutely everything, above and below, visible and invisible, … everything got started in Him and finds its purpose in Him.”

Bertrand Russell, atheist : “Unless you assume [there is] a God, the question of life’s purpose is meaningless.”

It’s not about me.

Three Insights:

1. Relationship with Jesus leads to discovery of my identity and purpose.

2. God planned me without my input. I may many things about my life, but not its purpose!

3. My purpose interacts in God’s larger, cosmic purpose.

Pt. 2 Ponder: “It’s not about me!”

Verse 2 Remember: Col. 3:16b (Msg.) “Everything got started in Him and finds it’s purpose in Him.”

Question 2 Consider : How can I remind myself that life is really about Christ?

Answer : By thinking about God first thing in the morning, when I first wake up; ask God to open my eyes and ears and soften my heart toward my fellow mankind. Think how is what I am about to do, don’t do, say or don’t say going to impact this person. Is it for the greater good of them or does it merely scratch my itch?

What drives most people? Success, Wealth, Health

What drives me? Financial needs, Physical / emotional gratification

Metaphor for my life : Merry go Round - jumping from horse to horse, going in a circle headed no where.

REMEMBER:"It's not about you,everything about God".

It is about you! That's why He died!

Not to nitpick, but the grand scheme of the universe is planned by and purposed by God, but it's not just "about God", it's about glorifying Him and worshiping Him to whom such is due. So all will culminate in a final population of mankind who will worship Him from their hearts, freely and voluntarily.
