To live our lives and miss the great purpose we were designed to accomplish is truly a sin. (William Wilberforce, 19th century British anti-slavery leader)
Have you ever asked yourself, “Why am I here?” “What’s the purpose of my life?” Those are essential life questions that most of us have asked at some time. Wilberforce sees the question as of the greatest importance. Life’s purpose is more than just to “eat, drink, and be merry.” Discovering your personal purpose in life should be a primary pursuit.
I press on to take hold of that for which [God] took hold of me. . . . one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me (Philippians 3:12-14).
