What's Your Purpose? (Titus 2)

Unless you have your head in the sand right now, you can't help but notice apostasy, earthquakes, wars and rumors of war, the love of many growing cold, bank failures, government control rising, etc. So in these uncertain times, what is your purpose?


What does God expect of us in the middle of all of this uncertainty, rising tensions, upheaval of businesses, banks, increased government control? What are we to do?


We are to keep our eyes on Jesus and lean into Him with every fiber of our being; physically, emotionally, and spiritually. God is our armor.


Why do we try to face the challenges of this world without His armor?


Put in on every day and then keep your eyes on Jesus:


Titus 2:13 looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us.


Jesus is both our Savior who died in our place and our Great God, the second person of the Trinity, who will rescue us from this world before He rains down His 7-years of Tribulation.


All of these symptoms we are seeing are birth pangs. They tell us that the next event on the Biblical timeline is the return of Jesus for his followers. In fact, there are absolutely no prophecies left to be fulfilled before the rapture:


1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. [17] Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord.


Whatever challenges you face today, take a step back, breath in, and look up. Keep your eyes on the right perspective, knowing that Jesus died in our place to save us from our sins, rescuing us from the wrath to come (1 Thessalonians 1:10).


Let go of this world and just keep looking for Jesus, our great God and Savior, our blessed hope, who has not appointed us to suffer His wrath (1 Thessalonians 5:9).


Dear Lord, When I look at the world and see all the turmoil in every direction, it's hard to not react with great concern. But then I am immediately reminded that You say repeatedly in Your Word, "do not worry, trust Me." "Do not worry, just keep the focus of your heart on Me." And as I turn my eyes from the headlines to Your Word, a calm immediately comes over me and I once again am filled with your joy and your purpose, to keep pointing people to You, while there is still time. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
