Pastor's Ponderings, August 31, 2020

Let God Fulfill Your Purpose

The world was shaken recently when it was announced that Chadwick Boseman died at 43 from colon cancer on August 28, 2020.  His influence transcended entertainment, political activism, art, and culture.  Many have testified how he had positively affected their lives. He was a real-life superhero.  


Just like Mr. Boseman, God wants His children to have a positive impact upon the world.  He wants us to be His representatives upon earth. We should lay hands on the sick for healing (Mark 16:18), give a word of wisdom for the confused, share God’s knowledge with the less informed, and support every good work (2 Corinthians 9:8).   The world may not know our names, but God has powerful missions for each of us.  God is calling for us to help those from the urban areas to those who are at ease in the suburban areas (Isaiah 58:12).  


Because of the many challenges that we face, we all need to know our purpose.  We also can be the children of God who are not content to rest on our accomplishments but who will strive to be all that God has called us to be.  He always caused us to triumph (2 Corinthians 2:14). Let God fulfill your purpose.


Mark 16:18 

New International Version

18 they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.”


2 Corinthians 9:8

New International Version

And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.


Isaiah 58:12

New International Version

12 Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins and will raise up the age-old foundations; you will be called Repairer of Broken Walls, Restorer of Streets with Dwellings.


2 Corinthians 2:14

King James Version

14 Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.
