Serve God’s Purpose In Your Generation Before You Die – Acts 13:26-52

From my reading in Acts 13:26-52 in the One Year New Testament.

We only get one shot at this life. We all have a purpose that God has put us on this earth for.

Only some of us obey by serving God’s purpose. But we all die. The question is are you going to fullfill your purpose or not? David is an example of a man who served God’s purpose while he was on this planet.

“Now when David had served God’s purpose in his own generation, he fell asleep; he was buried with his ancestors and his body decayed.” Acts 13:36

He did what he was called to do in the time and place God placed him. Each of us has a unique generation in which to serve God. We better get busy serving God while we still have time.

Knowing that I am eventually going to die is a good reminder that I only have a limited time to serve God’s purpose for my life. Also it is good to remember that I only have a limited opportunities in the time God has given me.

I pray that I would be able to serve God’s purpose for my life and then die!

If you have never read The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren it is a great book for further reading on discovering your purpose and living for Jesus.
