The Goal of Life

September 23, 2009

Most of us, especially us ambitious folks, are always setting and striving for goals.  I believe that in terms of leadership this is a great thing.  We press forward to reach a mark so we grow, improve, and so forth.  But the goal of life, if we will embrace it with abandon will keep all of the “other” goals in life in perspective.  Check out this quote from Oswald Chambers:

“In our natural life our ambitions change as we grow, but in the Christian life the goal is given at the very beginning, and the beginning and the end are exactly the same, namely, the Lord Himself.  We start with Christ and we end with Him-“. . . till we all come . . . to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ . . .” (Ephesians 4:13), not simply to our own idea of what the Christian life should be.”

So TODAY set your eyes on the prize which is Christ Jesus Himself.  Abandon yourself to Him and be laid bare before Him that your very life will be to do the will of Him who has called you and set you apart for Himself!  He is the goal of life.
