There is something divine in you that seeks expression. The gifts and callings of God don’t change, but they must be discovered.
There are two main signposts on the road to discovering your purpose.
1. What are you passionate about? What do you love doing that blesses others? Your purpose from God will always include blessing others in some way. That is God’s nature. Many tend to think that God will call them to something they hate. Don’t let dead, religious thinking steal your purpose. In His presence is fullness of joy! That which gives you joy, vision and faith for the future will probably be a sign of what God has placed in you.
2. What bothers you that you want to correct? We often discover our purpose by responding to issues that bother us. Some are motivated by the horrors of sex trafficking. Others are touched by the needs of disadvantaged children. Others love music and worship and have ideas to bring new life to church worship.
Typically, if what we love to do coincides in some way with that which we want to correct, we’ve probably discovered our purpose.
My purpose as a teacher was discovered by understanding my passion to answer questions about God and set people free from dead religious thinking. Though I was teaching and pastoring a church in Chile, I really became passionate when confronted with some bad teaching that was putting people in bondage. My teaching ministry today is a direct result of wanting to correct bad doctrine and being passionate about seeing people blessed. That is why I write daily posts on Facebook, have a teaching webpage, answer emails from around the world and teach at Charis Bible College!
