I’ve heard it said that fulfillment in life comes when you discover your purpose. But in addition to that fulfillment lingers as we find purpose in all of our living.

As we’ve been exploring what a Christ filled life might look like we’ve asked ourselves some pretty tough questions for the purpose of exposing our selfishness, as this is the biggest hindrance to the life God wants for us. When we are at the center of our world, when everything is about and for us, the result is a life with a lot of worthless filler. If we can recognize this and admit our barrenness we make room for God to fill the spot in us that He intended from the start.

 

We all greatly need to be loved. This is the supreme driving force in our lives, put there by God so that we would seek Him as He is the only one capable of supplying this kind of love. Too often we look for it in other places only to be hurt or disappointed. Then, empty and in need we wound those around us.

Everywhere, all the time, God is up to something. But what is He going to achieve? His objective for us is completion. Not completion like “it’s finished” but completion in the sense of being made whole. He wants us to be whole, filled, and full.
