Distractions Missions New Year Purpose

Stay Focused

“Peace is found in fulfilling our purpose.” 


My husband Jamie is once again keeping it real in today’s entry – let’s stay focused this year.


The other day in my daily reading of the Word I read John 20:21 NLT “Peace be with you.  As the Father has sent me, so I am sending you.”  As I read this verse, I sensed the Holy Spirit impress upon me these words: “Peace is found in fulfilling our purpose.”  What is our purpose? To simply exist and try to be “good” until the day we die? Our purpose is to be “sent.”  Sent to do what?  To win souls and make disciples of all nations.

Matthew 28:19 NKJV “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.”

However, many people, including Christians, are involved in many activities, even “Christian activities” that don’t have their purpose at the center of what they are doing.  The result of this leaves them unfulfilled and because of this, they are frustrated and lack peace.  The answer to overcoming their frustration and lack of peace is to simply re-focus and get back to the main thing being the main thing: being sent to win souls and make disciples.  Once they do that they will find true fulfillment and peace because peace is found in fulfilling our purpose.

So true
We are saved to serve and to do our part in Christ’s body
There is contentment and peace when our focus is off self and on being profitable for His Kingdom
Thank you for sharing this with us

Jamie how true, I remember first time we were in the company of Wayne Myers he said this
“I would rather be in the middle of a piranha infested river in an upturned canoe without a paddle than be out of Gods purpose for my life” a subtle mesage. Nan and I think of you both often, actually just before i opened my mail today. Contentment is found in the centre of our purpose!
we were discussing contentment, after reading Ezek33:30-33 makes on think about the church in our western world. we appreciate you and your family.

Thank you so much! We too refer to those meetings and remember you often. Wayne Meyers truly challenged this generation, may we now challenge those coming behind us. Blessings!
