Eternal Purpose

Jesus has kept us in the world, but we are not of the world. He has us here for an eternal purpose -- to be a light of hope that needs to be seen; to be a voice of truth that needs to be heard; to be a demonstration of love that needs to be lived.

[Roy Lessin]

1 Peter 2:9 … But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light;

Luke 4:18 … The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,

Matthew 5:16 … Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. ♥
