How can I make the most of my life? 
Ephesians 2:1-10

Part 1

God has created you for a purpose, are we misusing it? We are uniquely crafted for Gods use, for a task, when we don’t follow the alignment, we can cause damage, destruction, create messes. YOU WERE CREATED AND CRAFTED BY A MASTER CRAFTSMAN! 

Be purposeful to learn the word of what God has to say and bring this to the table…. passions, values, stories, experiences, skills and gifts. 

Big idea: God created us to WORSHIP and SERVE him. 

My purpose is NOT DEPENDENT UPON MY PAST

I was DEAD – I was DISOBEDIENT- I was DOOMED

(1-3) 

We all have a history, a past, before Christ saved us and before we fell on our knees and asked God to come and save us… before you came to Christ, you were dead, SPIRITUALLY DEAD. Their incapable of finding purpose. You don’t have a moral compass and you’re living on the fleshly desires and what your heart desires. Before Christ, we’re following the course of nature and what our heart tells us to do…. our purpose may be “heart driven” some people think, but your heart will lead you astray! Without the spirit of God, we can’t please God. We have no purpose for Christ without the spirit. Without the Holy Spirit, were children of wrath! 
Don’t fall prey to your past and allow it to overtake your focus on your present…. 
“That’s who i WAS!” Look forward to where you’re going…..
My purpose is ROOTED IN CHRIST

IN Christ I am LOVED, ALIVE, and HEAVEN-BOUND

(4-7)

BUT GOD!!!! Focus on that in Ephesians 2:4!!!! 

To find your purpose… understand Gods had mercy and love for us, made us alive with Christ, by GRACE, you have been SAVED! Gods loved me and you with such love, and mercy, patience and kindness and not judgement…. God has always loved you and shown mercy toward you. Embrace this love… because of Gods love in Christ, He has risen me up and I am ALIVE! I am spiritually alive and able to live and love through the ability of Christ! Our purpose isn’t about us and who we are, it’s about God and who HE is! We are to make much of Him and leave Him to be a legacy! 
My purpose is SATISFY GOD’S DESIRES FOR ME

God desires that I live by faith – Make much of HIM – Do GOOD WORKS

(8-10)

We are not here for our glory, but for Gods glory. Because of Jesus Christ, we have been given grace to have the ability to have a relationship with God. We have been given this GIFT! Salvation is a gift. Jesus Christ died on the cross by obedience for US! His love for us is so amazing! He loves us so much he died on the cross, shed his blood for us so that can have the ability to be freed and come to God and have much! Boast about God! Make MUCH of HIM
You are unique and crafted by God himself… you’re here for a reason and purpose. God made you this way on purpose…. we are to forfeit to desires and follow through what God wants for us… fulfill Gods calling! You have everything you need…. 

* Leave your PAST in the PAST
* Remember who YOU are in Christ
* Be obedient to Gods DESIRES 

“And you were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience— among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind. But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved— and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.”

– ‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭2:1-10‬‬
