Verse of the Day for April 1, 2018 and A Morning Reflection

Peter 2:24 Amplified

He personally carried our sins in His body on the cross [willingly offering Himself on it, as on an altar of sacrifice], so that we might die to sin [becoming immune from the penalty and power of sin] and live for righteousness; for by His wounds you [who believe] have been healed.

1 PETER 2:24 AMP


Reflections on My Holy Week Reading from My Utmost for His Highest

I competed my Holy Week devotional this morning and this one particular passage just struck me.

You see, I’ve come to understand that the Lord has given me a burden for PURPOSE:

I live on PURPOSE.

I thrive on PURPOSE.

I have a passion for PURPOSE.

I want to see others maximize God’s PURPOSE for their lives.

I don’t want my PURPOSE to go unfulfilled, etc.

If you talk to me for longer than 5 minutes, PURPOSE will probably work its way into the topic of our conversation.

William McDowell has a song that really expresses my heart’s sentiment regarding purpose. One lyric says something like:

I want to live a life POURED OUT. I don’t want to get to heaven with a life on full.

I so desire to get to heaven to hear ‘Well done my good and faithful servant,’ because I used EVERY gift and talent God gave me to serve Him, HERE IN THE EARTH!

My Utmost for His Highest - Holy Weekhttp://bible.com/r/Ea

When I read this devotional, I had an “Aha moment” as I realized that Jesus provided our first example of a life lived ON PURPOSE.

The quote reads,

“The Cross was not something that happened to Jesusβ€” He came to die; the Cross was His purpose in coming.”

The Cross was not something that happened to Jesusβ€” He came to die; the Cross was His purpose in coming.

Just take a moment to meditate on that thing! πŸ™ŒπŸΎπŸ™πŸΎπŸ™ŒπŸΎπŸ™πŸΎπŸ™ŒπŸΎ

Talk about PURPOSE!?!?!

Talk about FOCUS!?!?

Talk about pressing toward the mark for the cost of the HIGH CALLING!

MY GOD. πŸ™ŒπŸΎπŸ™ŒπŸΎπŸ™ŒπŸΎ That’s a story I’ve been hearing and reading since I was a little, little girl in children’s church, but THE WAY that revelation hit me today.


He is our PERFECT example of what LIVING ON PURPOSE is TRULY all about.

Happy Resurrection Sunday y’all!
