In our journey through life’s bustling days and silent nights, we often search for meaning, yearning to grasp the purpose behind our daily pursuits—a Vision of the Kingdom of Heaven.
Daily Devotional for November 14
“I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 3:14)
Vision of the Kingdom of Heaven
The Apostle Paul speaks of a race, a pursuit with a clear endpoint: the call of God in Christ Jesus. This is the ultimate goal of life – to live in a relationship with God, to know Him, and to make Him known.
1. Eternal Perspective.
Our earthly journey is transient. By setting our sights on the eternal, we gain clarity of purpose and understand that every aspect of our lives should reflect our ultimate destination with God.
2. Living for Christ.
Christ is not only our example but our aim. We aim to become more like Him, letting His love and grace flow through our lives.
3. Purpose in the Present.
Understanding our ultimate goal empowers us to live with intentionality. Each moment becomes an opportunity to honor God and work towards that heavenly calling.
