Purpose is discovered not created
19 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.
Social media: It's just the market's answer to a generation that demanded to perform. So the market said, "Here, perform everything, to each other. All the time, for no reason." It's prison. It's horrific.
Your life is a stewardship, not an ownership
Purpose comes step by step
A man's heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps.
The steps of a man are established by the Lord, when he delights in His way;
On one occasion, while He was eating with them, He gave them this command: "Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift My Father promised, which you have heard Me speak about."
6 Then they gathered around Him and asked Him, "Lord, are you at this time going to restore the kingdom to Israel?" 7 He said to them: "It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority." 8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth."
There is always a next step
Purpose begets purpose
7 But to each one of us grace has been given as Christ apportioned it. 8 This is why it says: "When he ascended on high, he took many captives and gave gifts to his people."
11 So Christ Himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, 12 to equip His people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up 13 until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.
If Christ doesn't ascend, we don't ascend
Nevertheless, I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you. But if I go, I will send Him to you.
When you step into your purpose, you make room for other people to step into theirs.
Who's waiting on you to ascend?
