What is Your Why?

Many times people are often asking what is my purpose. What is it that God has for me? Why am I here?  

I used to believe that my purpose was something big and over the top, but it is simple really. Dr. Faith Wokoma explained it this way, “Purpose is to love God, love others, and make Jesus known.” WOW. That is straight from scripture. 


And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength. The second is equally important:  Love your neighbor as yourself. No other commandment is greater than these. Mark 13:30-31 NLT


How do I do that if I don’t truly know how to love? Our idea of love is that feeling you get in the pit of your stomach when you are attracted to someone. That is only one type of love. 


The love that God is looking for from us is that unconditional love. Now that type of love is what I call “God Love.” That type of love requires an internal change or transformation of the heart and the mind.  

You see Jesus is our example of that love. We are still talking about purpose. Remember to love God (loving on Him), love others (love through Him), and make His presence known (be His Love). Jesus gave us the ultimate example of love by dying for us. His death, burial and resurrection is the purest example of purpose fulfilled. He loved God. He loved others. He went about throughout the land giving of himself and making His presence known.  

So how do I accomplish my purpose. It starts with submission to God through a relationship with Jesus. Accepting the fact that you are nothing without Him and asking Him to take away every sin. His sacrifice makes you clean and now let’s begin to show some love. 


He will transform your thinking through His Word. Your mind has to be renewed from how you think love is supposed to be to how God wants you to love. His love has no conditions and no boundaries.


I put it like this. It took me 55 years to have these thoughts and ideals. The process of God transforming my thoughts, attitudes and perspectives will take more than a minute. Yes, He can do it instantly, but for you to grow and learn it will be a process.  

Showing that unconditional love to everyone to include those we consider unloveable can be difficult, but it is doable. When you feel like you are failing at the task it literally takes three words to be said, Father, help me. You must come before Him, submitted and yielded. He will teach you how to love that coworker, that supervisor, that spouse. He is the best teacher. Not only that, He wants to see you succeed. I will be honest you will fall and you will at times fail, but don’t stay there. He is cheering for you. Jesus and Holy Spirit are interceding on your behalf. Man, what a cheering section. So keep pressing into your purpose-Loving God, Loving Others, and Making His Presence Known.
