and the day they find out why." — John Maxwell
We are wired to have purpose… any search for purpose apart from God is a dead end… a deep relationship with God including an acceptance of Jesus Christ who died for our sins and was raised to new life, is humbling. Christ alone gives purpose. To embrace Christ is to set your life on the path of your greatest purpose!
Today’s scripture: a man trying to figure out who he is… Mathew, Mark and Luke include this story in their gospels… only Luke tells us he is a RULER.
Often, during a crisis, we question our identity… a death, illness, graduation is a crisis…. A wedding is a crisis because it is letting go of what was and leaping into the unknown. I like this silly testimony of a young husband who forgot he was married. The day after the newlyweds returned from their honeymoon, the husband was 3 hours late getting home from the office. Dinner was burned—and his bride was burning mad. He had absentmindedly gone to his mother’s house!
