>>> Mandarin version of this article 活出生命的意义
Dear Ministry Partner,
“For we are God’s masterpiece. It is God himself who has made us what we are and given us new lives from Christ Jesus; and long ages ago he planned that we should spend these lives in helping others” (Ephesians 2:10, Living Bible Translation).
Are you tired of going through the motion of living the Christian life? Are you weighed down by the demands of life, work and family that leave you desiring for more than what your present way of life offers? Allow me to share how we can live a life of significance in different seasons of life.
Living a life of significance begins with the understanding that we are masterfully created for God’s purpose to help and bless others (Ephesians 2:10). Receiving Christ into our lives is the beginning of an adventure in living out our unique calling by faith, conforming to His likeness, and being a blessing to others.
At Cru Singapore, we are embarking on LiveSg – a three-year initiative that aims to encourage people to L.I.V.E. significantly in the following areas:
Loving God And Others
We believe that a life of significance is first and foremost anchored in a personal relationship with God, in whom we find our true identity and purpose for living. As believers, we must seek to live purposefully in view of God’s design for each of us.
Igniting Our Passion
God has given us talents, gifts and passion in life. A spark is ignited in us when we live out our calling and know that we are fulfilling God’s purpose for us. Each of us must find our personal passion, and integrate it with our season of life and our calling.
Venturing Out In Faith
Take action to live out our personal passion and mission. In thus expressing ourselves, we may need to step out of our comfort zone to serve God and people around us.
When we are a positive impact on others around us, we will experience much joy and satisfaction. A timely word of affirmation, a Spirit-led time of prayer and ministry, or a thoughtful act of service can work wonders in encouraging someone going through a rough time. We simply need to be intentional and avail ourselves to God.
Living a life of significance requires us to make choices. When we choose God’s ways, He will align our steps with His purpose and unique plan for us. You can take the first step by signing up for the LiveSg 8-Day Challenge. We have enclosed a flyer on this challenge (in the hardcopy mailer). Do have a look to find out more.
May you L.I.V.E. faithfully and significantly for Him!
