The Purpose Driven Life

Hi everyone, my english students and I are listening to the audiobook Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren, and I want to post some thoughts and ideas about this great book. I hope you like and feel welcome to share and discuss each day's message with us.

Purpose Driven Life - Day 1
"Thinking about my purpose"

Three insights into your life purpose:

  1.  You discover your identity and purpose through a relationship with Jesus Christ.
  2. God was thinking of you, long before you have thought about Him.
  3. The purpose of your life fits into a much larger cosmic purpose.
• God planned your life before you exist.
• You were born by God's purpose and for God's purpose.

Point to Ponder: It's not about me.

Verse to Remember: "Everything got started in him and finds its purpose in him." Colossians 1: 16b (Msg)

Question to Consider: In spite of all the advertising around me, how can I remind myself that life is really about living for God, not myself?
