Called to Be Loved

To understand your life purpose and understand your life calling you have to begin with God, because God created you. You can’t tell yourself what your purpose is. Only your Creator can tell you what your purpose is. Your purpose, your calling in life, actually begins in the nature of God. The Bible tells us that God is love. The only reason you’re able to love, the only reason you’re able to give and receive love is because God, who is a God of love, made you in his image. Ants can’t love.  Snails can’t love.  Cows can’t love. But human beings love because we’re made in the image of God. The Bible says that everything in the universe was created so that God could love it.  God made you, and he made you to love you. The Bible says this in Ephesians 1:4-5 (NLT) “Long ago, even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. His unchanging plan has always been to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. And this gave him great pleasure.” The first purpose of your life is to be loved by God. Let that sink in a little bit.  The first purpose of your life is not to serve God.  The first purpose of your life is not to trust God.  The first purpose of your life is not to obey God.
