On Purpose Part 1

My Purpose in Christ

Jonathan Stockstill

November 17, 2019

John 1:35–36 NLT - 35 The following day John was again standing with two of his disciples. 36 As Jesus walked by, John looked at him and declared, “Look! There is the Lamb of God!”

I find my purpose when I FIND Christ. 

  • John 1:35–36 NLT - 35 The following day John was again standing with two of his disciples. 36 As Jesus walked by, John looked at him and declared, “Look! There is the Lamb of God!”
  • Purpose is a person-Jesus. 
  • No one can define the purpose of a thing except its creator. 
  • People who haven’t found Christ haven’t yet discovered purpose. Some people have found Christ but keep looking for purpose outside of Him. Only in Him will we ever live out our purpose. 

I find my purpose when I FOLLOW Christ. 

  • John 1:37 NLT -  When John’s two disciples heard this, they followed Jesus.
  • The disciples’ job was simple:
    • Follow Jesus around.
    • Listen and learn.
    • Do what He told them to do.
  • Our purpose is the same in Christ:
    • Follow Him every day.
    • Listen and learn from His Spirit.
    • Do what He tells us to do.

I find my purpose when I FIXATE on Christ. 

  • John 1:39 NLT - “Come and see,” he said. It was about four o’clock in the afternoon when they went with him to the place where he was staying, and they remained with him the rest of the day. Following Christ can’t be a seasonal activity. It’s a lifetime fixation. 
  • Hebrews 12:1–2 NLT - 1…And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. 2 We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith.

I find my purpose when I FULFILL His mission. 

  • John 1:41–42 NLT - 41 Andrew went to find his brother, Simon, and told him, “We have found the Messiah” (which means “Christ”). 42 Then Andrew brought Simon to meet Jesus. Looking intently at Simon, Jesus said, “Your name is Simon, son of John-but you will be called Cephas” (which means “Peter”).
  • You don’t have a mission-you have a sub-mission! 
  • When you get in sub-mission, you can truly tap into your mission!
