Seeking a deeper purpose? Let God use you.
Anyone who wishes to find a deeper purpose in life can find inspiration in Jesus’ words and in the way he lived each day. Whether he was teaching spiritual truths, healing someone who’d been suffering, or bearing witness to the transformation of an individual’s character, his purpose was always to love, serve, and glorify God, divine Truth. In order to do this, Jesus drew continually on the mighty quality of humility. His career was distinguished by his unselfish willingness to be led by God, to allow God to use him for His purpose. We, too, can cultivate a desire to love, serve, and glorify God joyfully and consistently.
In the Bible’s book of Psalms it says, “I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness” (84:10). “A doorkeeper in the house of . . . God” might be said to describe the vital role of a Christian disciple. In early biblical times, a door-keeper might stand humbly at the entrance of a tent, serving his master by attending, when prompted, to the simple opening of the tent flap or door.
