Glorious Living

Ephesians 1:11-12 says, "It's in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for. Long before we first heard of Christ and got our hopes up, he had his eye on us, had designs on us for glorious living, part of the overall purpose he is working out in everything and everyone."

People look for meaning in a variety of ways. They search for purpose in other people, in jobs, in books and in churches. The fact is that we can only find out who we are and what we are living for in Christ. You were created in the image of God. Notice what the scripture says that even before you knew Him, He knew you. He had his eye on you. He was and is watching over you. He even has designs for a glorious life already drawn up for you to enjoy. It's part of his overall purpose. Cup of Joe, that sounds good but that is for other people, it's not for me. Yes it is! Verse 12 tells us that this design, this purpose for a glorious life is being worked out in EVERYthing and for EVERYone! That's YOU!

So today, stop looking for love in all the wrong places. You are not defined by your job or your relationships. You are designed by the ONE that likes who you are and desires you to live your life for Him, in Him, and through Him.
