This is Most Important - Here on Purpose

This, right here, is the most important thing you will do all day.  I know you're busy.  That is why I call this time, "Here on Purpose."  You've got other important stuff to do.  You are here on purpose because you are choosing to grow in your understanding of God.  You and I become better at everything else when we make God the first priority in our life.  

So relax.  Slow down just a bit.  There's no other place you should be right now.  You are here on purpose.

Let's pray...
Wow! - Brag on God.  Today, I thanked God for all the things that I could easily take for granted.  What comes to your mind?

Now... - Tell God what's going on in your life.  What are you concerned with, what is stressing you out?  Tell him about any uncertainty you have, where are you confused?

How? - Stop talking and start listening.  Listen for his Spirit to speak to your life.  Listen to His Word as you read it.  What is He saying to you?  What will you do about it?
Mark chapter 6
Mk 6:41, Jesus took the bread, blessed it, broke it, then gave it.  What Jesus does to bread, he also does to you.  You may want to check out this past teaching series called Breaking Bread.  

Ephesians chapter 1
Pay attention to the two times when Paul uses the word, “this.”  
What is He referring to each time he says it?  
Eh 1:9, Who is “us?”  

1 Thessalonians chapter 2
1 Thess 2:4 in comparison with Ps 139:23-24
1 Thess 2:11-12, This is what Paul encourages spiritual leaders to do: we advise, encourage, and insist that you live like Jesus.  

KaPow!!! - Experience God's power as you are obedient to what He is saying to you.

Utmost for His Highest (this is really great today)
