Purpose. If Yeshua could be characterized by one word, for me it would be- Purpose. The first time we hear Yeshua speak of his purpose is when he’s 13 years old. His parents were exiting city and noticed young Yeshua missing. The family back-tracked to see where he was, and found him in the Temple. His comment to them,
Luke 2:49- And he said unto them, "How is it that ye sought me? Did you not know that I must be about my Father's business? Young Yeshua in His wisdom wrapped up His purpose in this one single sentence.
Of course, there's many other instances of Yeshua enlightening us on the other facets of his purpose, but all His life was fulfilling the purpose of "His Father's Business."
Within His purpose, He came to destroy the works of the enemy; which were to bind-up the broken-hearted (hopeless), heal the sick, set the captives free, and to gather the lost sheep of Israel. In a nutshell, He always knew His purpose.
Yeshua knew He wasn’t here for pleasure, popularity, to gain riches, or be part of any ruling structure by embarking on a political position.
The world is full of vortexes. They’re all designed to appeal to every interest a person could possibly have, whether it’s sports, a career, relationships hobbies, or even religion. There’s a vortex for everybody. We can get caught up in the various swirls so easily, in fact, the world encourages it. But the nature of a vortex, is to consume, entirely. We get caught up in the whirlwind of it, and eventually get the reward of our efforts. It may be a trophy, a certificate, local or world wide notoriety, or maybe occupy a spot of fame in the encyclopedia, but irregardless, we can’t take any of it with us. When we leave this earth, our accolades, applause, and reward stays here.
The crux of the matter is this- The only way to have an eternal outcome, with eternal reward, is to commit ourselves to the Eternal Purpose of the Father, just as Yeshua did. If our life doesn’t culminate in eternal reward, we’ve been spinning our wheels in vain, and wasted the only opportunity we have to get it right. We’re to take on the purposful mantle of responsibilities with accountability, and accept all the challenges with joy.
One's identity is rooted in the soil of purpose. Keep His Commandments, Feasts, and Sabbath's; doing so will bring clairity of purpose to every life, and every life into a state of wholeness with our Heavenly Father and Messiah.
INTROSPECTIVE QUESTIONS REGARDING PURPOSE-
🌾 Are you properly stewarding your "gift of life" to be about YHVH'S business as Yeshua did, to the best of your ability?
🌾 Can you identify any vortex of energy that's consumed far too much of your life, past or present?
🌾 Is there a way to redirect your talents to benefit the Kingdom, encourage others, or help lead the lost sheep of Israel back to thier Shephard and reunite them to thier purpose?
