HOW CAN I LIVE OUT MY PURPOSE?
Identity leads to Purpose. Knowing who you are and who God made you to be should change everything. It should empower you to use the individual gifts, talents, and abilities God has given you to serve Him right where you are. How you do this will look different than others, but the common denominator is Jesus: He is who defines your identity and He is who sends you on mission. So go. Go to your neighborhood, your school, your workplace, your grocery store with your passions, gifts, talents, and abilities and make disciples that will make disciples that will grow the Kingdom.

When you know who God is, you can have an accurate view of who He made you to be. Our identity is not based upon what we do but upon whose we are.
Your unique experiences can influence who you are and how you see the world and give you individualized strengths to share with others. Your story is valuable and powerful.
God has given you your family, your friends, and your community. People come into your life in different seasons for different reasons. God has a purpose for each relationship.
God has you right where you are for a reason. Your job, your neighborhood, your kids’ activities are all places where He has sent you to be a Kingdom worker.
What makes you come alive? What makes you angry? What would you give your time to even if you didn’t reap any rewards in return? These passions are on your heart for a reason. God gave them to you and will equip you to use these passions for His Kingdom purposes.
God has given us all different gifts for doing certain things well. It’s easy to see - some are gifted in speaking, others in teaching, others in encouraging. And as Christ followers, it’s vital that we join our gifts together in unity to build up the body and grow the Kingdom.
When we know who God has created us to be, it should change how we live our lives. It should inform every decision we make, everywhere we go, and every interaction we have. We have been given a holy assignment, and we can choose to live a life on purpose right where we are.
God wired each of us uniquely with different aspects of our personalities that make us shine. These characteristics of our nature inform our decisions, our values, and how we approach situations.
