Living An Intentional Lifestyle
Posted on: April 22, 2013, by : Brandon Gilliland

When you wake up and your feet hit the floor, a new day begins. It is important to have a purpose. God gives us another day to live for a reason. When I wake up, I make an attempt to realize that I’m alive and breathing for one reason: God has a plan and purpose for me.

 

 

To be successful in our lives, we have to realize that we have a purpose.

 

If you go about your day with no purpose, it can be a waste of time. Instead, God calls us to do the complete opposite.

 

As Christians, we are called to live intentionally.

 

It’s hard to live an intentional lifestyle if you’re always focused on the latest reality show or other insignificant things. Life is precious, and we should do everything we can to make an impact on others by showing God’s love.

 

 

What Is Your Purpose?

 

This can often seem to be a hard question to answer. The ultimate purpose for every Christian should be to glory God and to make Him known to others. The way we can do this effectively is by living intentionally. Wherever God places us, we should be ambassadors for Him.

“Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God.”

-2 Corinthians 5:20

God has placed you where you are for a reason. He desires for us to live intentionally where He places us. Unfortunately, it is easy to forget to always live intentionally. It is easy to get “caught in the moment” of what we are doing. This distorts our vision to be able to see our purpose.

Realize that God has placed you where you are right now for a reason. Live intentionally.

So what is your purpose? Are you doing everything you can to live intentionally?
