Father, let Your purpose for my life be fulfilled.

TODAY’S LESSON

MEMORY VERSE:

“Pilate therefore said to Him, “Are You a king then?” Jesus answered, “You say rightly that I am a king. For this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.”
John 18:37 (NKJV).

INTRODUCTION

God does not waste resources. Hence, everything He created is for a purpose.

The sun gives light and never ceases to shine (Psalm 136:7-9), the cloud gives rain in due season and trees provide food and shade accordingly (Leviticus 26:4). Other animals play their parts without hesitation. Amazingly, man struggles to understand and fulfil his purpose for living. The discovery, as well as fulfilment of divine purpose, is the focus of today’s lesson.

1. DISCOVER YOUR PURPOSE IN LIFE

A. Like Apostle Paul, once you become a new creation in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17), you must begin to crave for the understanding of your purpose for living on earth (Philippians 3:12).

B. That purpose has been predetermined by God before you were born (Jeremiah 1:5; Galatians 1:15). It is your duty to discover and fulfil it.

C. Here are some practical pointers to your purpose for living:

i. Potential: You need to identify your in-built ability, your talents, and God-given gifts (Ephesians 4:7).

Find out the things you do with less stress e.g., singing, drawing, talking to a crowd, helping others, etc. The knowledge or skills you acquire in life should be to shape and sharpen your potential (Acts 7:22).

ii. Passion: What are those things you exceptionally have flare or zeal for, anc do often? Build your vocation or career on such things. The things that get you excited, give you joy and satisfaction can lead you to the fulfilment of your purpose in life (Psalm 69:9; Colossians 4:12-13).

iii. Prayer: After you have identified your potential and the things you are passionate about, you need to pray for divine guidance, so that the world and the enemy will not hijack your purpose in life (Acts 9:1-2).

CLASS ACTIVITY 1:

Share with the class your in-built abilities, talents and God given gifts that you have identified.

2. LIVE TO FULFIL IT

Teacher should allow the class discuss how to fulfil the purpose for living and guide the discussion with the following points.

These seven things will help every child of God fulfil his/her purpose in life.

  1. Ask God to reveal His plan for your life to you (Jeremiah 1:4-5). Then, draw a vision and mission statement (Proverbs 29:18; Habakkuk 22).
  2. Set achievable goals and pursue ther (Acts 20:24). Take a step at a time and do not be mediocre (Psalm 37:23).
  3. Identify and relate with people of lik passion: learn from their mistakes and build on their success (2 Kings 2:1-2,
  4. Submit yourselt for mentoring and counselling: do not claim to know it all Acts 18:24-26; Proverbs 11:14).
  5. Live as if you have just one more day on earth: do not procrastinate (Luke 9:61).
  6. Focus your attention on God (Hebrews 12:2). Make sure all that you do is to His pleasing (Colossians 1:10).
  7. Always return all the glory to God: do not ascribe anything to yourself (Isaiah 42:8).

CLASS ACTIVITY 2:

Student should share with the class the practical things they are doing to fulfil purpose.
