Most of us struggle at one time or another with questions of meaning, purpose, progress, prosperity, power and posterity. Why am I here? What is my purpose in life? How do i know i am prospering? Do i have soft power to overcome my challenges, where do i apply it, for how long and with whom? How can i find unity in diversity where i experience so much disunity where it shouldn’t be? Our Discovery Bible Study from Ephesians 2:1-22 will help us put things in perspective. We find purpose in serving God by serving others. All our careers, roles, and vocations need to be pursued with a view to serving God in Unity with others. In finding unity in diversity, “Look at the last ten people we’ve called, liked, texted or whatsapped,” “Now. How many of them look just like us? or are they people in our good books or of the same social/business circles” You may discover that the proverb, “Birds of a feather flock together” rings true. It is human nature to seek out people who share experiences and histories similar to our own. Yet if we spend the vast majority of our time with similar people, we run the risk of seeing the world through a very narrow lens! We can find purpose, progress, prosperity, power and posterity when we deliberately go out of our world to reach out to others just like Jesus did by stepping out to the people outside His world to serve and draw them in. We must also step out of our church walls, mission organization walls and fellowship walls to find purpose. Apart from reaching out to the lost, we must find out what other believers in other assemblies are doing and see how we can fellowship, learn, rebuke (scriptural) and serve them with our gifting and talents as we experience freedom that Christ came to give us.
We are saved to serve!
