A life worth living
Sunday 24th January


Main Scripture: 

 

I therefore, the prisoner in the Lord, beg you to lead a life worthy of the calling to which you have been called,

Ephesians 4:1

 

Length: 20 

 

Thought: 

 

God through Christ is calling us to live life with purpose, a life worth living, by knowing where you came from, who you are and where your going.

 

Introduction:

 

Today more than ever we need to live with purpose, a life worth living, it begins with knowing you are who God called you to be, and the purpose of life is to live worthy of the calling God has placed on us. 

We all carry a message, the question is what is our life saying about us?   God begins working on the inside making us a new creation in Christ. It is this inner life, our inner being is this recreated new humanity we find our purpose. It is by God’s design and his spirit at work, then what we do can flow out of that.

 

Outline: 3 points. 3 scriptures.

 

Know who you are in Christ.

 

You know me inside and out, you know every bone in my body; You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit, how I was sculpted from nothing into something. 

Psalm 139 13-16

 

Know your calling

 

God is faithful; by him you were called into the fellowship of his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. 1 Corinthians 1:9 

 

Know your life’s message

 

Do not be ashamed, then, of the testimony about our Lord or of me his prisoner, but join with me in suffering for the gospel, relying on the power of God, who saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works but according to his own purpose and grace. This grace was given to us in Christ Jesus before the ages began,

2 Timothy 1:8-9 

 

 

Transitions: 

 

Paul’s call to those in the church in Ephesus to live the life worthy of the calling of God. 

 

Know we are valued by God, as God formed and shaped us in his image, created us in Christ, 

 

Know that we are called into a special friendship, made us his friends, even while we were far away he brought us near. 

 

Our new life and the way we live gives a message to the whole world about us.

 

 

Conclusion:

 

Today more than ever we need to live with purpose, it begins with knowing you are who God called you to be, and the purpose of life is to live worthy of the calling God has placed on us. 

 

We all carry a message, the question is what is our life saying about us?   God begins working on the inside making us a new creation in Christ. It is this inner life, our inner being is this recreated new humanity we find our purpose. It is by God’s design and his spirit at work, then what we do can flow out of that.
