God’s heart for us is richer than we can imagine.  In the second chapter of my book I am writing about Purpose, and I would really love to share with you a sense of what I am seeing.  In this short excerpt from my book “The Marathon Runner” I describe our pricelessness.  Enjoy!

“Ephesians 3.10 (NLT) says this: ‘God’s purpose in all this was to use the church to display his wisdom in tis rich variety to all the unseen rulers and authorities in the heavenly places.’

God is so proud of us that He wants to display each of us set like priceless jewels into His Church.  Living stones, sons and daughters, that glow with infinitely varied aspects of His likeness.  His purpose is that we come so alive to our purpose that we shout His praise, verbally and silently, to every principality and power, bringing them to their knees.  He is a Dad that adores His children, and finds every opportunity to show them off.  He sends some of us in to mine the darkness for these priceless jewels.  I want my words to mine the long closed depths for the richness that is to be brought to light for the King, which demonstrates the beauty of His creation, His precious children and shows His kindness through the impact of their lives on the earth.

Purpose in general is that we were made to be loved by God and to love Him.  Beyond that, we each have something that touches our hearts and fires us up.  There is something that God has purposed for each one of us, that is unique.”
