Living purpose jun 22

  1. 1. + Living Purposefully
  2. 2. Question: You just got an SMS alert – Your account has been credited with  N200million. You are a bit worried about what it’s about. Then you get  another SMS – “you have asked to build a family house for the person who  died for you”. The House is one of the projects he was working on before he  died. He already laid the foundation. The SMS was sent by the administrator  appointed to manage the Estate of the one who died for you. What are the  things you would like to know before you start building.
  3. 3. Is there a plan? A template? An architectural design,  or a prototype? What did he have in mind to build? “And see to it that you make them according to the  pattern which was shown you on the mountain ” – Ex 25:40 “Therefore thus says the Lord God: “Behold, I lay in  Zion a stone for a foundation, A tried stone, a precious  cornerstone, a sure foundation; Whoever believes will  not act hastily”. – Is 28:16
  4. 4. What does a cornerstone mean? What can we learn  from the cornerstone? • The cornerstone (or foundation stone) concept is  derived from the first stone set in the construction  of a masonry foundation, important since all other  stones will be set in reference to this stone, thus  determining the position of the entire structure.
  5. 5. Is there a pattern for our life’s purpose? Is there an architectural  plan or cornerstone already? Or do we need to invent one? “Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the  virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name  Immanuel”  – Is 7:14, Matthew 1:18‐23, Luke 2:34 “And while the crowds were thickly gathered together, He began  to say, “This is an evil generation. It seeks a sign, and no sign will  be given to it except the sign of Jonah the prophet. For as Jonah  became a sign to the Ninevites, so also the Son of Man will be to  this generation ”. – Luke 11:29‐30, Heb 2:13, Isaiah 8:18
  6. 6. To live on purpose, we need to understand the type, the  prototype, the earnest and the finished product (antitype) The Bible as our Code Is 8:20 Moses, Tabernacle, Jesus, The Body of Christ/Perfect Man The Story of Creation Gen 1/ John 1 The Feasts – Leviticus 23. Passover, First Fruits, Pentecost,  Trumpet, Atonement, Tabernacle (Harvest/Ingathering)
