Ephesians 2:10, For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

This coming weekend, I will start a new series entitled Explore God. My guess is that you have seen some of the billboards or heard the commercials. During the seven-week series, I will ask and answer seven of life’s most important questions. For example, 1) Does my life have purpose? 2) Is there a God? 3) Why does God allow pain and suffering?

First,“Does My Life Have Purpose?” For our lives to have true and lasting purpose, we must look to a source that is both personal and transcendent. We make plans every day. Some plans are short-term, like making a grocery list, while others are more long-term, like deciding on a career to pursue or whom to marry.  However, making plans, whether they are short or long-term, does not give our lives purpose. Real purpose can only be found in something or someone beyond ourselves, a higher purpose. The Bible says, “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” So join me this weekend, as we begin to Explore God!

Think about it…and have a blessed day!
