It’s been quite a while since I posted. Very sorry about that. Finally became a graduate after 5 years of law. Whoop whoop! And I’m thinking what do I write today? Then it just hits me. In my first year of school, I was pretty psyched about school and all. The excitement however dwindled with the years. I didn’t stop going to school because of that. No! I kept on. Why did I keep on? In year one, I knew I was 4 years away from graduating. In year 2, 3 years away. Year 3, 2 years away. Year 4, I year away. Finally year 5, graduation year. What was constant? The end point. I didn’t go to school just for going sake. There was purpose. I believe that purpose was over achieved. But apart from purpose, the joy at actually writing that final paper was inexplicable.
How much more with our Christian lives? We shouldn’t just be Christians for just being a Christian sake. There should be purpose in your Christianity. In fact, there is purpose in Christianity. The Bible says in John 3: 16, ‘For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten son’.
Purpose: I went to school, why? To get a degree. God gave His Son, why? To get us. You’re a Christian, why? I can’t answer that for you. It is however a question that you should have an answer to at every point in time. And the thing is, with Christianity, the answer is never the same. Yes, the end goal is to make Heaven. But we also most times have our own agenda.
If I could find joy in completing the ordinary task of going to school. Just imagine how much joy you will feel when you complete the divine task of making it to Heaven (even though our imagination can’t even begin to comprehend).
My point is, know your purpose for being a Christian.
